I felt the image too central which drew my eye to the tree rather than emphasis on the models lovely eye. I cropped the image to give it more balance and ran a large frame around the outside to balance it further as I could not enlarge the image due to lack of sharpness. I think next time if you focus on the models eyes it wont matter if the tree is blurred as the viewer will be drawn to her eyes anyway.

Hope you like this

Firstly I cropped from the left and bottom of the shot to try and give a more balanced view.

next I used gamma correction +30 to try and give more light and show more detail on the black kid.

I increased the colour saturation +30 which lifted the colour but not the contrast again to show more detail.

I ran a 14 pixel drop shadow in green on the bottom right to again give the illusion of more space on that side and then an outside frame in white.

Hopefully this now gives you a slightly clearer and more balanced shot. I realise this looses the daisys which you wanted to keep but its important to remember the main focus here was on the kids so the small sacrafice at loosing the additional flowers does not really hurt too much.

Hope you like it

Just a very small adjustment to clone out the partial building on the left which seemed to draw the eye from the main view.

Hello Bryan

I felt that a lot of detail was missing from the rose and the BG was a tad grainy. So I ran a portrait soften in Paint.net which softened the BG and gives more detail to the petals whilst also giving the flower a softer romantic feel.

Hope you like it

As the image is not straight I thought I would accent the fact that the pony is cheekily poking its head around the corner by giving it another framed corver which hopefully distracts the eye from the panels which are not straight.

Cropped from both sides to remove excess. reversed the image, (just personal preference) added a second layer and selected an area for internal framing, rubbed out the framing so the pony leans through it. Enlarged as much as quality would allow, framed, lifted colour a tad and sharpned. I hope you like it

Just cropped a little to bring the accent onto the building being naturally framed rather than the greenery that was framing it. resized as much as I could without loosing too much detail.

Cropped to remove branches, enlarged image as far as quality would allow. To make the image feel bigger and give more space in front of Goose I ran an outside drop shaddow. I then added a large white frame as the image was still much smaller than the 800KB limit. I added text to the bottom left of the shot to give it a tadd more balance.
