Off camera works best in this type of situation........and most time this type of shot is best in natural light.....or low light to create that mood... but i love it JK.....

Love this bench! The angle appears slightly low as if being viewed through the eyes of a child. Nice flash to ambient light ratio. Did you us a flash to fill?
nice job!Wc
