What is the focal point? I want to say it is the dog and the lady leaning over to pet it. The woman to the right was intentially painted softer for de-emphasis and the couple in the back, although they are waving do not take center stage. The canopy and the poles initially caught my attention when I looked at the photo. OK the couple in the back wasn't in the photo but I decided to add them because I liked the connection they bring to the foreground.
