[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My wife and I spent the weekend with her brother and family in Niagara and went into the Golden Arches (McDonalds) Its been ages since Ive been in there and they had these free games that the children loved. The shot is of my nephew and a little girl that we didnt know who was there with her family. Children can be shy but their fascination with the game overcame all natural reserves. The shot was cropped. Thanks for viewing

Hi David,

I like candid shot of kids at play, and they both seem very intent on what they're doing. The photo is a little soft, so I'm wondering if a higher ISO and faster shutter would have helped with sharpness? In any case, interesting and cute, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi David

The boy especially, looks totally focussed on the game. Good colour, sharpness & mood. Excellent shadow detail & well managed backlight. Have a great weekend!

Hi David,
Nice caught of view and pose of this two young children, nice concentration of the boy with the game.

Hi, David. I love these candid shots of the childern with their loveliness and innocence well captured. The photo is sharp. soft colors and memorable for the family. I wonder about the bandaid on the litlle girl probably just a scratch.Cheers and TFS.

Buen momento realmente los niños cuando juegan parece que estan en otro mundo
Buen trabajo
un saludo

Hi David,
I had a gut feeling that this was at McDonalds even before I opened the photo! Strange...Anyway, very fine shot. They look oblivious to the fact that you're taking their photo (a very clear one at that). Well done.
