Thank you Bob. That was one of those shots that is fun to do. Just aim, and then wait for them to strike a pose.

If capturing the eyes is the goal, and it usually is, these are spot on.

Thanks chiPersei. Yes, I usually use single point focusing and try to pinpoint the eye. This one was somewhat difficult as they were moving around quite a bit, and as they moved the focus kept jumping onto the palm leaves. But generally, I just aimed and waited for an interesting pose.
