    Nice use of window light and shallow DOF. I actually prefer the first two (the light splotch is distractng), but they are all great shots.

    You have a very nice feel for portrait composition. For me that and the subject make all the difference in a portrait. To me these are almost perfect.

    I agree the clone was needed..

    Well, I find the second view to be very compelling. A bit more of the torso showing and interesting expression. (Good lookin' kid, BTW) Mostly, I think it's the higher angle of view that I like. Did you move the camera up or his chin down?

    Nice!

    Thanks every one...

    Pete, I asked him to move so I try different angles on his face etc.. Then I moved back just a smidge on the second one..

    Totally dig the "natural" expressions going on. None of the "oh no, mom's got her camera out again" or "quick! look silly so she'll go away" kinda stuff. Great compositions.........only thing I'd tweak a little is warming them all up just a tad. But that might also be the difference between our monitors so who knows.

    And I have to ask, if you don't mind. What's going on with his eyebrow? Scar, birthmark, new gradeschool gang thing? ;)

    Michael.............
