    Beautiful light, window light I assume?
    I like how there is NOTHING in the background that could distract from the scene.
    So exposure and anything technical seems totally all right here.
    Composition is also neat, your son is extra cute here ... my only woe is that his dad gives off the impression of being totally uninterested in his boy's expression of utter affection.

    beautiful shot. great contrast between the young one's curiosity and Dad's "defeated" look and posture.

    Well done! The focus and composition are spot on. I love both the child and father's expressions. The only suggestion is to perhaps slightly tone down the skin highlights on the father's left cheek and hand. Other than that, you've nailed it.
