Hi Una, sorry to hear of your loss.
I think its a nice informal shot as it is. My only suggestion would be to either tone down or remove altogether the brightly coloured lights of the gaming machine behind the lady in the middle.

I think banehawi has done some great mods. His first one appeals to me the most. My initial thought would be to remove those bright lights to the left of your mother.

A great memory of a special moment.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I am no expert in this sort of photography, I like it as it is, a very natural snapshot.

A lovely image, Una. I have enjoyed looking at all the mods. Whichever one you choose, I'm sure your mum would be happy that you are framing this image as the background is incidental to the warmth in the shot.
I shall also remember this, as your mum passed away on my birthday.

Think you should keep it as it is as its a true representation of a happy and natural moment
