Met this kid in India on road. I was really amazed by the spark in his eye. Even though he seems to be from very poor family, I really like his self-confidence. It may not score very high, it may not be the best picture I shot last year; but I like something about this photo. I keep revisiting many times in my last years collection of photos.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A very striking portrait that is assumed to meet the challenge

A good and striking portrait such as you have captured here is all about the eyes, the confident eye contact that has that sparkle in it, and it's here in abundance. I also like your diagonal composition as opposed to a normal straight on portrait it has created a much more dynamic feel to the image as a whole.

I wish the background was more uniform without the bright area immediately next to his face, perhaps it might be an idea to dodge it a little just to reduce its impact. Other than that there is nothing further that I would alter about it.

Thanks for a great submission in a very challenging challenge, Sid
