Family Portrait

We decided to head back to the local Bluebonnet patch, pictured on this blog a few days ago, for an informal family portrait session. I had the idea of using the unconventional POV from the start and I am happy with how the composition came out. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Good job. I never really though about taking a self portrait this way.
