Cute shot, try not to put your subjects in the center of the shot.
P.S. They look like their having the times of their lives :-)

Thanks for the suggestion. Using the "rule of thirds", would you have put them on the left side of the shot or the right side?

Thanks.

It is a nice shot, but the focus looks to be on the red pole, instead of on the kids. They look like they're having so much fun - nice to have willing subjects!

Ditto with the comments. One suggestion is to use the center focus point, focus on their faces, and then recompose the shot without releasing the shutter. Even though the rule of thirds is just a guideline, if used on people I would place the subject where he/she would be looking towards the center of frame. In your pic, you could crop a bit from the left, placing them off center, as their eyes direction is towards the center of the frame.

Thanks.

Generally speaking, I put the larger portion of the space in front of the subject. In this case, since that would have included a disproportionate amount of the pipes, I might have turned the shot to portrait and put the kids along the left side of the frame. Here's my take with some quick sharpening.
