Colors are washed out, what time of day was this shot? I'm guessing somewhere between 11am-2pm?

exif says almost 9:00 PM...?

That doesn't sound right but the light on the image is very flat.

Mannetti, you are right on target. Shot was taken at noon on a summer day. I know it was not a good time. I was on vacation with my wife and had to go with the flow :). How can I fix it using elements 8 ?

Titus, not sure what you are looking at. Just checked and date is correct. Clock is off four minutes

The main subject of this photo is very subdued and dead center.
I'd try a different crop.
