Youve have to disable the date function on your camera Sally, - its completely destroyed what could be a good shot. If you are concerned about dating the shots, the date and time plus a lot of other details are kept in EXIF data which is attached to your shot anyway, so no need for the overlay.
I guessed that you just took a snapshot here and almost got a really nice shot but it is spoiled by that horrible date time stamp and in the worst place it could be apart from over the baby's face. Turn that feature off in your camera and find this info from the exif data hidden in the file instead. You can do this with a Jpeg image on your computer, if you use Windows, just go to My Computer and navigate to the image then right click on the image and select 'Properties' from the menu. Then in the window that appears look for the details tab and all the info you need will be there.
With regards to the image, you need to decide which is the main subject, the girl, the baby or both then focus in closer to them. The background is a bit misty but there's not a lot you can do about that but with regards to the scaffolding, there is. You need to be wary of the background when taking images because they can cause distractions from what you want people to look at so be mindful of things like this scaffolding or lampposts etc. This lady looks like she's happy with you taking the shot so you could have just moved her to a clear area with a better background.
I've uploaded a mod where I cropped the image to lose the date stamp, removed the scaffold poles, added contrast and sharpened.
Hope this helps
If you want dates to help records - switch it on for the first shot each day, then back off. Two things here - they are too close to the right and the scaffolding in the background is not ideal. There is a nice image in there, but not with that date.
