Hey, well, there was something I really loved about this photo. Maybe the way they are stepping together, I am not really sure.

Anyway, just wondering how you might edit it. I would probably make it black and white, as seen below, but i was wondering about contrast...should I increase it?...or other simple changes. One that seems obvious now is that the house is at a slight angle. I have been doing this a lot. How do you guys ensure a level photo? I keep my grid up at all times, but, I am still not nailing it.

out of camera (my daughters face is a bit sharper in the original, I guess flickr is using a smaller version that made for loss of some detail.)

So long as the people are properly vertical, the background is less important. In this image I'd rotate in in PP because the subjects don't seem quite vertical, although that requires some background creation along the corners and edges. I'd suggest fixing the sharpness issue and perhaps mining some more detail from the shadows. Also, consider adding some vignette. (In Photoshop, the Shadow/Highlights adjustment is quite useful.) As for camera orientation ... practice, practice, practice to train your eye.
