Totally in the moment – nice. Can almost hear the screams, feel the movement. Friendship apparent.
It’s hard to focus on the subject – too much around it.
This captures a wonderful sense of childhood joy and energy, in the back yard. The dappled sun suggests afternoon, but it’s not too harsh. Good post-processing, but not too much. The color balance is a little bit green, easy to adjust if you want. Using a wider aperture might isolate the kids by blurring the background a little more. Camera angle could be a little lower perhaps, showing more of the kids.
