I took a bunch of photos during a fun game in the backyard. As it happens sometimes the focus went on the wrong person. However the girl looked so away with the fairies that I tried to do something with it. Friends and family liked the result but I am not so sure. Does it work or maybe a little or is it the trash bin?

The original photo.

The cropped photo.

For situations like these, I usually select the focus point of choice and move my framing according to the movements of my subject.

Either that, or just use MF.

It's been a while since I have seen a posting of yours.
I think the crop is fantastic. It shows depth, action/movement and yet it does not detract from the young lady in the background... in fact it enhances it as a stolen moment.

Great candid shot.
