From the Critique Club

Oh I'm glad I pulled this image. I like it a lot. I think your photograph ties in very well with the title and song lyrics. The song (B side of "I want to hold your hand) is about a boy loosing his girl to another boy. And he (This Boy) wants her back. The other boy want be happy, where he will if he gets her back.
So I take that and look at the photograph and I can see that in the picture. Yes the boy in the photograph is young but we all remember I first puppy loves. And I think that is where this picture and the title along with the challenge works well. Congratulations on a good choice.

Now as far as the technical aspect of the photograph I don't see much wrong there. I love the tone -by far the best for this photo. I think the lighting from the highlights, midtones, and shadows are all great. And the composition is good.

If I had one or two things to pick on it would be the bright areas in the background. Even though they are very well softened by the use of a shallow dof they still draw a little attention away from the face. I wish his eyes would of been a little brighter showing more detail. Other than that, I think this is a great piece of work from the photo to the title to making it all fit the challenge. Great Photograph!

Keep up the good work and I hope you find the critique helpful.

Was in my top 10, I love the natural boy, even his "sideburns" are growing out, which makes for an amazing genuine image of a child.

Nice work
