Reading the blogs of others who have used this theme, I can appreciate the difficulties they encountered. Our grand daughter was singing carols in the local Shopping Centre so I thought it would be a good opportunity for the image below. I walked all round the group trying to get the best composition. When it came to edit it there were all the difficulties you described – eyes closed, unwanted people in the shot, no-one looking at the camera etc. This was the best I could do with a bit of cropping and vignetting. It was great to hear them sing and I am sure the shoppers enjoyed the carols. Our grand daughter is the girl with the reindeer antlers!
