A wonderful photo.
The children are looking so fascinated to the laterns, their light is so warm and pretty.
A very peaceful spirit.

Hai Awie, the color is nice and the kids are just fascinated by the lanterns.
One question, is this photo taken using 300D or Ixus 500 ? The infomation you have does not tally.

Well, you got a good start with such interesting shot. The night shot is very executed with these two little children admiring the lights and shape of the lantern.
Well done, Foong.

Very nice shot Awie. Good work with a difficult light. I like the eyes of the kids staring at the lamps. Very good composition and colours. Well done!

Great colours, and good sharpness given that this was taken without flash

Good natural colour you have here. The night shot is very executed with these two little children admiring the lights and shape of the lantern. If the dragon eyes are lighten that will be more interesting.

It's so nice to see the face of the girl and boy, both so impressed, and the dragoon in front of them, as it was watching them. Congratulations to your wife for her picture ;) Regards.

Great managing of light, compliments from Italy!
