    I agree with PNA, might look better down at his level. Nice shot for what its worth, though!

    ps: love the avatar! Tombstone is one of my faves, Doc in particular.

    Seems like with the years gone by during which this photo has been lying in the drawer, you would today no longer need to go down that MUCH to be on the same level with him, I am sure he has grown a lot by now, and yet "get on eye level" was my immediate thought, too.

    Nevertheless, this still is too precious a photo to be "rotting" (;)) in the drawer, his very open, proud, "western" (heehee) smile is just too endearing for that.

    How old is he now?

    He's very cute!

    I think it's a good shot but I agree with the rest about getting down closer to the ground.

    He Is deffinantly taller and bigger now.He was 1.5-2 years old at the time and he is now 5.It was just a quick photo that I took of him and Have a larger version framed on my desk and another hanging in my locker at work, this one was extra in the drawer.I had no idea about being on their level at the time of taking this photo ,just knew how to point and shoot:wink:
    Thanks for the comments.I am really just a proud Papa and wanted to show of my best friend.

    How cute! I would say watch out for plaid shirts (the eye doesn't usually like them in photographs) but I guess for this it works! :) I played around in PS with it trying out some vintage looks and it looked cool. Something to consider.

    I personally am not a sepia fan, but I did a color wash and it looked nice :)
