Hi Josef

I can see that this is your very first post on DPReview. 

I think it's a little difficult to ask for critique on photographs of your own children, as no matter what someone says you'll still like the photos.  The photo could be improved with a bit of cropping or shooting from a different angle, but it is what it is and definitely one for the family photo album.

Best regards

Your daughter is very cute but I find the background distracting.

Yes nice photo but imo you need to cut it in half vertically. Then discard the right half. Cornell Capa's rule is evident here... if you don't like your photos, get closer.

It's a tad overexposed to my eye. I agree that there are too many competing details so I'd crop off everything to the right of the big pillar. Also, the pillars and posts aren't vertical.

Note everything I mentioned can be fixed in post processing (at least to some degree.)
