My son Alexander, at the park. He was having a great time posing for me in his new Red Hooded Sweatshirt.

Processed from RAW with -1.25 exp comp (thank God for RAW!). In PS: cropped, smart sharpen, saturation, resize, USM for contrast, smart sharpen again, save, submit.

He is a very happy guy, not so easy to get him in a serious pose. This look didn't last long, the next shot was an "angry face". What a hoot!

Shot using my Tamron 28-75 @ 54mm. I love this lens.

Very nice reflections in the eyes giving you the idea to look with the child's eyes

One of the best of the "my pride and joy" photos. I love her direct look into the camera. Also the composition is great pulling the eye to her open and beautiful young face.

Nice rule of thirds and background contrast. Her eyes are warm and caring

Nice picture, the lines accross the eyes seems to detract from it though.

I may be (probably) wrong, but I think I saw this foto somewhere.
Or very similar one, I won't say for sure. It is lovely!
Great background bluring, very good lighting, colors fit just fine.
If this one is yours (and I'm wrong) congratulations man!

Without the title, how does this say "Pride"??

Nice close up. Great eyes. I'm trying to figure out what the elyptical reflection is. The dry lips are a tad distracting. Some chap stick perhaps? Lovely child. Beautiful lighting and skin tones.
