Before and After Edits

I messed around with the exposure, levels, and hue/saturation.  My main edit was increasing the level of red to bring out skin tone.

This image is tiny so it's a bit pixelated, sorry!  I adjusted the brightness and contrast, curves, levels and shadows and highlights.  Shadows and highlights were the most important edits made because it brought out definition in our overexposed faces.

This image had a blurry board in the foreground so I started by cutting that out.  After editing levels to pull out the green in the plants and red in the skin I increased the exposure slightly.  The last change I made was rotating the image so that the dock is no longer tilted (this required slight cropping).
