    I was doing a photo session for a couple of local comedians when the son of one of them wandered downstairs for a drink. VOILA! Instant father & son portrait. I'm kind of proud of how well it came out, and the kid was great. No fuss, no complaints, and his expression never changed. I wish every child could be that well behaved! :lol:

    Really is a nice portrait but I'd have moved them further from the backdrop. It would have looked softer that way. Being so sharp it's a bit of a distraction. The crease between them really catches the eye.

    really nice shot, but have to agree, the background is just a little distracting

    I kind of agree about hte background but that's a good thing cause that's all that's questionable and that can be fixed. Good job!
