You are absolutely right, Duane.  I get so involved with the people 
that I'm photographing that I really don't notice anything going on 
around me or behind them.  That's something I need to be aware of.  I 
didn't even see those people in the background until you pointed them 
out.  Of course, with photoshop, they won't be there long ;-)
