Looks great, kimh. The only thing I can see is that your shadows are too dark in spots. To print well, there needs to be a little detail in the darkest shadows and a little color in the brightest highlights. To check the file, open a Threshold Adjustment Layer and move the slider all the way to the left and right. If you see spots, you have plugged blacks or blown whites.

Easy fix and it will never happen again if you use an adjustment layer for your color correction. Open a Levels Adjustment Layer, double click on the black eyedropper and set the RGB to 10-10-10. Double click the white eyedropper and set the RGB to 244-244-244. Not sure if that relates to anything in Affinity.

Looks good Kim. Bambi's tip will make it even better. This family is going to be delighted with their images!

Thanks Bambi & Shadow, I went a bit heavy on the levels adjustment, I've backed them off a bit which looks much better.
I'll submit them and see how they go.

Thanks
Kim
