Wonderful tones and detail.

I think a reflector or a bit of repositioning to light him up more would have really defined him from the background

There is something I find very appealing about this portrait, but at the same time something slightly unsettling. The photography is very good, but I have some reservations about the processing, although I can't quite place what it is I don't like - perhaps it is that the eyes are too white, and the skin too smooth. Nonetheless, a good portrait.

Again with the skin smoothing thing, looks terrible to me, sorry.

Wee bit over-edited for my taste, the editing on the subject's face distracts me completely from his expression, which is a shame as you've obviously caught a great shot here.

That boy has nice eyes, even skin tone, makes for a great model, great pose, good work on this image, 8.

His face seems a bit overprocessed to me, the eyes look way too bright to be natural. I like the serious expression and the choice of bw, though it could use a bit more contrast.
