Quick edit. Opted for a different, vertical, 4:5 crop to get rid of the grey whatchamacallit on the right.

Nice Photo!
My first try was in portrait orientation, but a heavy crop in 4:3 looks better to me

what a cute kid!

I preferred the 16/9 crop with an imaginated 3/3 line on the kids face.

done in RT 5.8-dev 3049

Hi @Toand007
here is my take, I tried to reduce the color in the weed and sky, to let the baby stand out a bit more.

DT 3.7.0+1510

darktable does not create an xmp file ?!?!

It should but you can always use the exported JPG as a sidecar and load it in light able to apply the edits

the option “write sidecar file for each image” was not activated.
although i did not change anything in the settings ? strange…
attached the missing xmp.

My try in DT 3.6 (Linux Mint). I cropped (1) to enlarge the main subject, and (2) to reduce the large green in the foreground. Put some extra exposure on child and blue clothes. Used Color Calibration to diminish the greens in the picture a bit an tone equaliser to tame the light in the clouds
