This is lovely. The light is gorgeous. I think it suffers from being brought down to DPC size - would be great bigger.

Great picture, only the sky is the main subject in this case and not the portrait.

The sky takes it all and I really have to work hard to notice the subject and subject's expressions....

Powerful shot, not my idea of a portrait though, I'd have gotten close up to the child and used the clouds and hills as the background. 5

It's a beautiful sky. THe sky is more the subject than the child.

Cute. The color in the sky and clouds is nice. I would like to see more emphasis on the face.

I'm not sure that I'd count this as a portrait, but it is surely beautiful! Good work! I give you a ten!

It's interesting, and graphic, and 'pretty', but it leaves me wondering what the point of having a kid with a teddy bear in the middle of that landscape is. If it's going to be an environmental portrait, with a kid and a teddy bear out in the desert, there should probably be some implied contrast between the subject and the environment, and a reaction from the subject to that contrast. Maybe it would be fear, or admiration, or something else, that's up to you.
