    on this photo, aside from the depth of field issue going on.

    Actually I like the focus on the boys and the background is just that.....a background. Looks good.

    I like that only one boy on my screen is sharp. Kind of gives it a different kind of focus (no pun intended).

    Yes, the shot is ok, but I think it can do without the black box (?) in the bottom part. (what is that?). So I suggest a crop.

    It's a great shot of #35, if that's what you're after. Otherwise I'd take a couple giant steps to your right, and try to get the group in more of a head-on direction.

    Not too shabby. It's a tad bit oversaturated, though.

    That would be a water cooler

    I wasn't after any parcticular photo, in fact this one just kind of happend. It was starting to get a little late, so the light from the sun was perfect, and I just happend to be looking through the viewfinder, and snapped it, the last shot on my roll.

    Shot on film...

    No offense, but "shot on film" isn't an excuse for oversaturation. For me, one of the greatest joys of film is that I can hand pick one with contrast, tone range, saturations, etc just the way I want. Had you said, "shot on Velvia," I might understand why the green is overdone. Still, images are rarely, if ever, exactly the way they appear on a negative. You adjust during printing or digital post-processing, so it's not something that's set in stone.
