One problem with using Pixentral on the forum is their policy of eliminating images... IE: "the system will remove any image that has not been viewed in over 30 days."

I'm on the hook with 25 people!! Thanks so much!!

ps When I took the picture it was 750kb. In oder to upload I tried to change that to 97kb. Now I noticed the forum pic is blurry. Not sure if that is correct for help with fixing as I am a complete novice. I can email the pic too,, thanks
A larger version of my try is here (Only because I have a reunion coming up and I feel your pain!)

If you ever get to shoot something like this again, have the subjects sit on the sand in a nice tight group so they fill the frame better than this one, have them with their backs to the sun so they do not squint, do this in front of that hill in the background, so you can be sitting up there looking down at them. Throw a bit of fill light at them. Have your camera on a tripod, take a bunch of photos, some after you tell them you are going to take one and some without telling them. Then you should have a nice supply of open eyes to move around for those you catch with their eyes shut.

I see your point, OlBaldy. Here is my attempt. This is on Windows Sky Drive and I'll leave it there for some time to come.
