|Greetings from the Critique Club.
Hello Ankur, Iím Alan.
Usually, I look at the photo first, then go to photographers comments and never look at other comments. Had you not mentioned the boy, I would have not considered it, important, now my eye is drawn.
As for the portrait, Outstanding, yea-yea the background could have been improved, but realistically we have what we have. I think if you would have blurred the background further, I doubt you would have passed a review by the SC. Keep doing this type of work, no doubt I will see you soon on the home page.
