this was a photo taken in quite bright daylight of my friend and her daughter. she wanted some just nice natural shots of the family
I think compositionally this is a stunning photo. It does look washed out though in colours and I keep imagining how I would alter it - probably do it in B&W, fade the background and edges to a soft focus - make the emphasis on the gorgeous little face and the direction of the mothers face.
Try - converting to b&w, doing a curves adjustment to deepen contrast, blur those distracting leaves, even the hair and childs clothes a bit and really emphasise the faces.
Please post again - wish you had mods enabled!

thank you for your comments much appreciated.
i love the way she is looking at her daughter, I have cropped it considerably to get this comp, i'm new to ps, so not sure how to fade the background and edges.
will try enabling mods not sure how though
ive reposted it susan. look forward to seeing what you can do to enhance it as I do love the photo as it is anyway
