Nice composition. I think it's a bit overexposed but not much--maybe 1/2 f-stop I think the white balance may be set for sunny or cloudy. This is evidenced by the orange tints in the reflected light in the background. In spite of these minor flaws, it's a keeper.

Del,

Nice interpretation of a family tree. Shooting low lights is challenge under just about any circumstances. It takes quite a bit of practice and luck to get things just right. The white balance is a common oversight because we either forget or the moment is so fleeting we don't have the time to set it.

Sometimes the white balance can be corrected after shot as my 10-second edit of your photo tries to do. :



Note however there's a slight greenish cast which would then need to be removed.

Please note that not all the times we wish the white balance to be correct. Occasionally, the reddish glow of uncorrected artificial lighting adds a nice warm effect to the shot.

Aloha
