the direct light source flattens your subject, would love to see more vibrant colors in the reds and blues 3

Fun photo. I'm not good at technical critiques (sorry), but your photo does make me smile.

I think this would have been better if the mouth were closed. Not sure what the white is on the bottom of the picture since his feet are cropped off.

Aww..what a cutie. Nice color. Maybe a straight on shot wasn't the best in this pose. Hard to appreciate the full dimension. Try shooting down and angled just a bit.

I felt that his mouth should have been more in focus, but this is a terrific capture. Beautiful colors, and a really fun photo.

This is a little disturbing to look at. Does nothing for me.
