"Daddy, if you remove the Flash, and shoot it like a Night Time Scene, with a narrower aperture and a slower shutter speed; I promise I will be still long enough for the Bulb to paint in the light behind me, and fill in the details of shadows on the wood.
Or Daddy, you can make different exposures, with a difference +EV 2 to later Overlay for a more even tone for this capture.
But, I digress since this was taken when I was a little boy, before you had Lightroom, or considered some of my developing composition ideas during the Good Ol' Days of Film Analogue Photography that you enjoyed so much.
You have to listen better Daddy. I want you to be a good photographer. But you fixed it up good Daddy, no one will ever know how badly you overexposed this capture using your powerful flash, likely still set for me playing in that wider shot.
Next Time Daddy, please remove the flash from your camera, while shooting on a rainy day, into a poorly lit area, with limited shadows, from a gray, overcast, autumn afternoon that I will always remember, because we were there together ... and you got me McDonald's for lunch."
