    May just be me, but it looks as if everything is leaning slightly to the left.

    No lean to me.

    It's an ok picture, but considering the tools you have at your disposal, I would have picked a pose just a tiny bit more "dynamic". That straight on is cool for portraits and what not, but how about having some FUN!

    my mom took it, she was squatting down so we could get that huge green tree behind us and have kinda that looking up angle. that tree was about 100 yards or so behind us

    Get CLOSER to the tree so it fills out the backdrop. And have your mother get damn near under your noses pointing up if you want an extreme POV. You can even be waving to the camera to accentuate the effect.
