Your white balance appears to be a bit off. Did you use flash?

i held off saying it but i also thought white balance is off quite a bit, also its quite noisy.

othr then that, why not sit down in front of the tree, because the tree which you obviously wanted in the picture gest lost here, especially with a wall and shades behind it which are in focus!

The color isn't a big deal, but the background spoils the scene. I always say, a background can make and break a photo.
All I did was "Auto Color" in Photoshop.

If you look at the tree it is in focus, the family not so much.

Thanks for the C&C everyone. This is actually a "self" family portrait, being the camera was on the tripod about 15 ft away and on a 10 sec timer and I thought I had set the focus up correctly through some test shots without yours truly in the frame. I also experience issues with direct linking to non-original sized images in Pbase...when I look at these in the original RAW format, the WB and focus is much better...so something must be happening in my conversion and upload. I edited the link to show the original size image.
