Tys in the fog

My son Tyson in the park on a foggy morning yesterday. The hardest part of this shot was getting out of bed before the fog disappeared. I like the way the flash lends the scene a surreal edge, although it's probably a little overdone. If I brought the ambient light up by a stop (reducing the shutter speed from 250 to 125) it might improve things. Single Sunpak 383 into an umbrella camera left. Background underexposed 2 stops.
I remember when Cait and Tys found a dead moth outside, and Cait asked Tys "does it hurt when you die Tys?" and Tys replied " No, but it hurts everyone else." I think he was about 4 at the time.
