I have been drawn back to this shot over and over again. What a great capture. The textured wall in the background is distracting. I think a more shallow DOF might have softened that up a bit for a better look, but what absolutely perfect expression and emotion in this shot with great contrast in the display of the tatoo and obvious masculinity. This is just priceless. I bet is is great in BW as sell. 9 from me.

I've been through a lot of photos at this point, but this one really touches me. What a tender portrait. It may not be the most difficult to photograph, or have the fanciest technique, but it moves me. Congratulations on capturing a wonderful memory.

First, this is an amazing and touching capture of father and child.

With the background you have with that wall, I think if you move the subject away from the wall and then light the background from behind the subject, you will get a gradient effect that would look really nice.

Very nice touching portrait. An obviously loving and caring father.

Wonderful portrait, I like the tenderness that is expressed in this shot vs the rough appearence of the father with his bald head, beard and tattoo.

The Awwwe factor of this one alone earns it at least a 7 from me... add to that the fact that I think it is a technically sound shot and you've got a 10.

very nice intimate portrait, a pity you did not put more distance between them and the wall. The structure in the wall is highly distracting in my opinion and should have been put out of focus.

Fit for an Athena poster ;-)
Seriously, an excellent photo, a very tender moment captured. The detail in the wall really helps to make this shot. 10

Excellent capture of a special image. Simple and effective. Great focus. One of the better "people" shots I've seen thus far.
