I took this one at a fountain in the Moroccan area or Epcot in Disney while on vacation, like the way it turned out. I wish I could get the colours in the wall to pop a bit more, any hints on how?

Great job shooting in manual! WTG!
Your daughter is pretty centered both horizontally and vertically in the frame. I would have positioned her more in the left side of the frame, so we see more of the fountain and can get some kind of connection between her and the fountain she's enjoying. Right now we can't really tell what she's looking at so there's not much impact with the composition.
Also, try and get down on her level instead of shooting "down" on her. That also gives more connection for the viewer.
Exposure is pretty good, but I can't tell where the focus fell in this shot. It might just have motion blur with a SS of 1/50--try to stay at least at 1/125 when shooting fast moving children.
Keep it up!
I agree with what Meagan said. She was spot on.

I already had the ISO cranked up and didn't want it to get too grainy, it was semi-indoors and early evening so the light wasn't the greatest which is why I went with a slower SS.
So should I have increased the ISO more to get the SS a little faster?
