Considering you are shooting right into the sun, you got a pretty good shot. Here is the blue removed. I dont think its better than your original.

Thank you Bynx, I like the second one you did the best. I played around with it a little also, I cropped it and changed the colors/saturation/etc. This is as good as I could get it. So I guess next time I have to remember not to take photos right into the sun directly. Still learning

I wouldnt crop it. I like that bird on the right staring right at the camera. Overall you have captured a really good moment. Its not technically perfect but its a good memory captured forever.

I gave this a try, but my results aren't reall what I would consider great. There is quite a bit of noise in the darker areas, which shows up a lot when trying to bring out the expression on the girl's face.

My take. I tried to get the little girl as clear as possible. I downsized a bit.

No, it's not scanned. It's straight from my memory card. I was using my Nikon P90.

I still think that Bynx has cropped and processed ths picture the best... I would not add or detract from what master of post-processing has done... Really good work, Bynx
