Lovely focus on the darling. I want to see more of his mouth, though... The background/bokeh is perfect!

A very sweet photo. I love the whispys of hair in the forelock and the composition of the sharp foreground with the DOF in the background...8

A bit of a blue cast but what an adorable subject in an appealing setting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2008 01:50:22 AM
Perfect color, not overly saturated as some would have the tendency to do. Focus on the foreground and head are perfectly balanced with the bokeh in the rear.
