In retrospect, Photo #1 was actually the best of the lot. All of the faces are visible, and all are looking at the card Madeline is about to check off. I used straight ceiling bounce for the shot, and got enough light bounce for reasonable shadow detail. However, I felt the shadows would be too dark to reproduce properly so I didn't bother to get my subject's names for a potential caption.

Cute Kids Always Sell: Probably the paramount rule in my community photography is to include some kid in your shot. On Halloween, or on an event like this one, it's a target rich environment.
