On the night of the Full "Blue" moon, my fiance and I went for a drive to see if we can get a better view of the view. After a short time there, my daughter got scared and wanted to go home. So I asked her if she wanted to help me get a photo with mommy. SO she said yes. It was the last shot of the night and I think it was the best of the night.

Adjustments made:
Exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites and a touch on the blacks.

Adjusted the clarity a bit and the vibrance/saturation.

I then used DeNoise, reduced image and saved for web.

very sweet, and unexpected against the fabulous deep night colours.

Thank you all for the voting and the comments. It really was a joy to see my daughter and fiancee be a part of my photos. Also, always a good way to add to our collection here at work.

Charm in the subjects, beauty in the background. I like the way the turn of the heads shows the features.

I love this. If not blue, certainly very close second

If I find myself staring at a picture for more than a few seconds, I have to stop staring and analyze. This is beautiful! The subject matter - a lot of people take pix of themselves with their children. That isn't unusual, and the parents/kids are usually wonderful. But what is so wonderful about this picture to me are the colors, contrasts, the flowing currents between people and nature, the balance between the layers, the framing. It's beautiful. I think the focus is off in places, and that there might be a little more contrast between the elements in it (it seems too soft to me - maybe softness could have been conveyed only on the human subjects) - but this is awesome and thank you for sharing.
