Thanks for the comments!

Couldn't agree more about the composition - definitely limited/redundant. Appreciate the feedback and good ideas about planning the backgrounds better with a toddler and being more patient.

Anybody have other feedback/thoughts about post-processing?

They look fine -- if you keep this up you'll have captured great memories of your son. They are not the most artistic things in the world, but that's hard to do when shooting toddlers. It pays to really focus on your backgrounds and think about how it will affect your composition.

How do you control your backgrounds with a toddler that doesn't much care about your "art"? Scope it out in advance, position yourself in the ideal position, then wait and hope.

My only other comment in about editing (from the culling perspective). Do you need three shots with a hose? Two nearly identical shots of the dog? It is hard to make these choices but it is a skill that needs to be learned.
