I took this picture of my neice at my sisters wedding. C&C welcome.
****ing white balance.
The color is off, too much blue hue.
Definatly look at your white balance. Check your camera to see what setting you were at.
Hopefully you shoot in RAW, which makes this a quick fix in most editing softwares.
As for the picture itself, it looks technically nice (other than the WB) as in exposure looks good, if maybe a bit underexposed (but that may be the WB).
The composition leaves to be desired though. With a gaze looking off camera, I think that leaving more room on the right side of the image, putting her more on the left, might improve the shot.
I also don't like her hands, both how they are positioned and mostly how you cut off the fingers on one hand. Luckily, bad hands + needing more room on the right lends itself nicely to a crop.
There really isn't that much going on in the image to make it interesting. She is a cute kid but with nothing setting a backdrop, no interesting look in her face, the photo leaves me wanting more.
But again, technically good, but work more on getting moments and interactions when doing candid photos
