    Thanks for the C&C on the last photo, I learned a LOT. You are all amazing.

    This photo was taken on an overcast day, no flash. Should I have tried some fill?

    ISO 100 - plenty of light, so I set this.
    Aperture Priority - 2.8 - wanted to blur the distracting background
    Let the camera pick the shutter speed - 1/200

    I like the composition & the colors.
    However, her face seems a bit out of focus to me.
    For small group, I normally set mine ~5.6 (to play safe) to keep everyone in focus.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Any guess as to if that would make the background much less blurry?

    I used 85mm f1.2 or 70-200mm to get that kind of effect. But the price to pay is -huge hole in your pocket.

    Not sure if you could see the attached file. This baby mobile (the 'fishy' are couple inches away from each other) shot using 70-200mm lens.

    It's more like a snapshot to me. A good one, nice and sharp with the right exposure IMO, but still a snapshot. A different background, or perhaps frame them, and make sure all are looking into the camera.

    PS A little more depth to get the wife sharper wouldn't hurt, either.
