Thanks, Diana. It was fun doing this shoot. There was an enormous fountain at the Palm Beach Zoom and it was filled with children having the best time. Made me wish I could dance in the fountain instead of being behind the camera.

Awsome shot,Cathy, cool crop!
Did you take any where you used the built-in flash? (Just reading Jay Formans book on capturing kids, and that was a suggestion of his for photos like this one. All to get more of the childs face in the picture.)

How do you like the Canon EOS 20D, I'm seriously contemplating one.

ciao,gisela

I love photos that capture kids letting loose and enjoying themselves. This is wonderful.

Julie...thanks for your nice comments. To answer your question, the photo was shot using shutter priority at 1/13.

Gisela...I did not use the camera's built-in flash, although I guess I could have done so. To answer your question about the 20D; it's an excellent camera with image quallity equal to the higher priced Mark II.

Odelia, thanks for your comments.
