Wonderful photo! Beautiful colors, great DOF, and he's got such a cute expression.

This shot keeps drawing me back over and over again. It's probably one of nicest images I've seen coming off the F717. Boy, I am sure the parents of this boy would be so thrilled to get a copy of this picture from you. The boy is so cute, and you were able to capture his best (and natural, I might add) pose! I think you definitely have a winner here, Helen!

Nice capture & idea, Helen...I esp like the child's expression/posture & the colorful costume and drum. I also like the placement of the face and drum within the scene...effective DOF, good exposure, & nice clarity too. Nice photo. MFC
