    I prefer #2 as there seems to be a yellowish (or is that a greenish) tinge on the first one. I think it would work if you cropped closer on the right to take out the superfluous object in the lower right. There is a small white thingie above his left eye on the background that you could easily clone out. I really like the composition on this one and if you smoothed out his chapped right cheek slightly I think you've got something here. Nice.

    Thanks so much for commenting onesister. Great suggestions! Believe it or not, I masked his face a LOT and that small area was still quite chapped. I wonder if I should try cloning it out or something.. or a higher opacity mask might have to be in order.

    Thanks for commenting!

    I prefer the second version as well. The oversaturation of the first one takes away from the image for me - almost looks too contrasty. I like your composition. I'd include the shot if I was showing a bunch to the parents.

    I agree the first one seemed a bit much on the levels and maybe the contrast. I also think I might be inclined to clean up his cheek a bit... almost looks like he has a bit of a rash, but maybe just from the wind?
