    Took these today at my daughters birthday party. The sun/shade spots were horrible and she didn't want to sit where i put her of course. Every time i tried to change angles, she would move around..So this is what i got...
    (At least we had somewhat of a warm day, which was very unexpected)
    Wish i wouldn't have gotten so much of the shadows on her face....
    Anything PP i can do to make them look any better?
    And of course, C&C is welcomed!!!

    reduce the color saturation. reduce the contrast.

    definitely. are you working from a RAW file. maybe the color temperature is a tad on the cool (blue) side. try warming it up a tiny bit.

    Thanks for the tip though about the saturation and contrast! I had actually upped the contrast a little in the first one thinking it made it stand out more, but seeing them both here, i definitely like the second edit better!
