I really like how this photographer chose to blow out the highlights in the background in order to put the focus on the family in the foreground. This is a good strategy especially if the background isn't so interesting.
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” ~Kurt Vonnegut
