    I like the second one as it is a tad darker and is a little less yellow than the first one...

    See, I like the warmer tone of the first pic. The second pic has to much of a green washed out hue to me. Have u tried this in b&w yet? It may look really good with the light in his face and the shadows surrounding him.

    Is there an in between? Both are a little much. I prefer the first one though, it makes the kid seem more cute, the second one seems like something you'd do to a more serious portrait.

    I agree with katy on the black and white thing :D

    The Black and White is my favorite. His eyes are great!

    Too bad his cheeks are blown out...

    At first, I liked the warmer version best, but then after looking at it carefully I decided I didn't like the neck regions color, and the color lining the cheek.
