Hi Rommel,

I've lightened the foreground in the bridge shot to show up your faces more. The boy and the dog asleep is a nice shot as it stands, I wouldn't change it.

Here I've blurred the background, so it's less prominent, gives a more personal shot of you and the boy

The sleeping ones are on the most part fine so the only 2 things I did was reduced the highlights on the clothes and removed the person in the background.
