...I focused on one kid, the recomposed. I haven't gotten used to quick changing of the focus points yet. Plus, I always use flash outside and bring down the background a 1/3 or 2/3 stop. This makes your subject brigher and the background darker, thus further emphansizing your subject.

These aren't great shots, really - but they just show off the shallow DOF capability of the lens and camera combination, with a little darkening of the background and edges for effect.
