My 2 year old son, Justin, absolutely ADORES heavy construction equipment so when I stopped by a major construction site after hours and let him walk among the beasts he was in heaven. Unfortunately I didn't grab my camera from the truck until the best light had passed. Just a few minutes before this shot the setting sun was directly illuminating the scene. Oh well, can't win them all.

You really get your theme across well, and the selective desat helps emphasize it. 8

Boy seems to get a little lost in the imposing background. Maybe needed a lower angle shot to get down to his perspective a bit more.

Would be a lot better if it were brighter!

Not sure I get the title, but very cute anyway.

This is really good! I like your composition a lot, and the details and clera focus is wonderful. My only suggest is that you add some contrast and maybe even brighten it up just a little. Good shot!

Good photo but the boy is a little dark. It would have been better if he was lighter and brighhter.
