Thanks for critique of this image. I am specially curious about the military uniform and if anything on it may be protected.

Uniform doesn't fit. You've composed with too much empty space at the top and cut off at the knees for no apparent reason. No reason for pink background either.

Regarding the photo of the child on the red cushion, I would increase the blacks (contrast), warm the white balance slightly while adjusting the tint to less magenta, increase the saturation/vibrance slightly and maybe increase the lights/highlights a little. As is, it is a little flat. Compositionally, I would prefer to see the whole cushion, though I think it's OK as is.

Given the feedback I have so far I was considering trashing the whole set and shooting again on the account of the background. I will make the adjustments you suggested.

I don't get the point of the woman in the too big uniform wearing non matching jeans and I don't like the crop. The lady boxing, same thing, the pink background and that pearl bracelet, along with the look on her face just don't go with the fists being held up.
I love the little girl though, i think it's got a bit too much background and could use the top and right side cropped out some with the full cushion still in the shot, and I agree with above, it would have been nice if you had some floor infront of the cushion and less on top as how you took it. But I think it's sweet photo and the little girl is pretty in pink. I never do stuido shots though, so it's only my 1 cent worth.

The big uniform would work if we could see her full height with no trousers, just the jacket and hat. Shoot against a white background, and keep the smile and the salute.
