Thanks Streetshooter and BBW, coming from talented photographers like yourselves, that's very high praise. I AM a very proud Dad.
As for the colors, these shots are right out of the camera. The ironic thing is that I'm so busy with the boys I have precious little time for post-processing. In the end though, I think it helps me focus more on striving to be a better, more thoughtful photographer, since I know I probably won't have the time to run the photos through post-processing.
