My son Owen--and his lollipop. I'm trying to do more people shots, so this is one of them this month.

PP: Autocolor (I'm colorblind slightly, so I don't trust my own fiddling with colors too much). I selected the face and lightened it. I also lightened up his nose a bit. I cloned out some debris behind him, and cropped. Resized, sharpened.

Fatastic angle David. Agree with Gurrý, love what you did to the ace. Maybe being slightly colourblind would be an advantage for me :)

What a cute kid! This is such a nice shot and I like what you did to highlight the face, freckles are the best, I have lots!

Perfect, this is definately a magazine vacation photo for something like the Village at This is the Place in SLC. Well done!

Wow, wonderful perspective, and fun, light mood. Appealing contrast between hat/vest and lollipop. Also, by having most of the bright color focused in the sucker vs. basically drab colors elsewhere, the eye is drawn to it and the kid's fun expression. Great idea, great capture. 10
