    That is an excellent shot in so many ways.
    Not only is it a great portait but the use of size and age - big old tree v's small young (and cool) child.
    I'm sure it's already printed, framed and hung on a wall.
    Well done my friend.

    Thank you so much. And yes it was printed and hung PDQ. LOL
    I posted this pic on Photosig and kept getting the same critique about cropping it tighter. Like you I think the old tree adds proportion. Plus I thought that using only the texture of the tree trunk as a background he would some how get lost and the story would quite be the same.

    Very cute kid. I like the picture a lot.

    May be the edge of the kid body is too sharp (sharpen too much?), look like the kid was being pasted to the background in photoshop. :D

    Good Picture.

    Wonderful shot! Love the texture that big old tree provides. And he's just the cutest!
