with a shot like this you want to change your aperture pretty high, somewhere between f11 and f22. that should make all the kids clear. it looks like the focus fell on the birthday candles and cake.. are you using focus lock? this will help you get the focus where you want, then you can recompose the shot.
If you use this lense on f11, it will make your subjects pretty clear. If you want to try getting the blurry background, you want to stop that number down pretty low to about 2.8 to 1.4, the smaller that number, the less area is going to be clear and sharp, so it will be also be harder to focus, but the end result is worth it!

I took this at my Grandson's 6th Birthday Party Saturday. I used my Canon XT, Auto, lens 50mm 1.4. What can I do to make the picture all clear of all the kids?
