Nice shot.
What's the white thing in the middle? I would loose it and the wire if it's not crucial.... I suspect it is, but I can't tell

The white thing in the middle is part of the art installation by a Japanese/American artist exhibiting at The Baltic. Its a sort of ceiling light that comes down to the floor. I left it in deliberatly because of the surrealisism of the whole scene.

What a good question Ken. 90% of the time I focus and compose a picture instinctively. I focus in the centre of the screen and then recompose the picture with my finger holding the button half way down to lock it until I get the composition I need by moving the camera. This means that if I'm asked later what I focused on I can't always remember but in this case as the kids are my main interest I almost certainly focused on them and then moved the camera to the new position to take the picture. The kids weren't posed and they were moving so they're probably not completely sharp. It was a wide angle lens at 5.6 so the dof was quite good.
