Great eyes, expression - a real cutie. Great lighting and catchlights in his eyes.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments. Very true, children are a joy and a gem...even when they test our patience;-) Very lovely portrait of your son. You caught some great catch lights in those big brown eyes. Lighting and skin tones in this color portrait are great too! I do have a critique (picky, picky right;-) ) and that is with any great portrait one never caps off the top of the head - unless your composition just has the face fill the frame. Nonetheless this is a great shot of this happy smiling child.

Well captured and presented. Don't assume that because you have an affinity for your subject, the rest of the world will too. Otherwise, a good workmanlike photo.

a bit more tight on the crop might have been in order imo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:45:02 AM
The crop works very well and you've got good catch lights in the eyes. The use of a reflector on the left may have helped with the shadows on that side.

I like the shallow depth of field, but the main point of focus seems to be more on his nose than his eyes. Also, the crop adds an unnecessary anxiety to the frame being so tight on his head and chopping off his fingers. Great start, but I'd like to see this one with better execution.

Congratulations on your beautiful child.

Photographically, I'd have liked to see a crop without his head being chopped off, and less shadow on the face.

Ver cute boy. I love the pose and lighting. Good DOF also.
