I have an assortment of images taken two Christmases ago of my niece shot
with a Noctilux.  Similar problems.  The shot of your kids (28turtle.jpg) is
precious, save for your son being out of focus.  The 'lux is a unique piece
of glass and can make for some interesting images.  I found that I was
disappointed enough that I finally sold it last year. The depth of field
issue is a challenge.

Great composition, and more importantly a great looking family.  Keep 'em
coming (pictures that is).
