    This is part of a series of my friends kid I shot today... the kid has some crazy blue eyes. This is the unedited version (the edited version cleans the chocolate from his mouth, lol):

    Nice portrait and great blue eyes!
    I notice that there's a slight blue coloration all over the photo. This is easilly removed in any photo editor though. If you don't mind i can post an example. It really makes this portrait even more lively.

    Oké here it is (i cropped it to make the face more central):

    Adjusted the levels, raised the contrast and blurred the background a bit.
    Hope you agree it makes the boy and his blue eyes stand out more.
    I left the chocolate cause i think it's a nice detail.
    The blurring isn't done well (you can see this on the edges of the shirt) and the shirt still looks a bit oversaturated. But it's just to get an idea.

    The second one is definitely the favorite one for me out of the two!
    I like the composition and the shadows from the lamp he's holding. Great idea!
    To make one more comment (i'm being a bit perfectionistic): there's a little green lens flare waiting to be removed.

    Great shots and cute kid! You'll have to get some tight closeups to show his eyes!

    I agree, the second shot is my favorite! His eyes are great but I would like to see better lighting on the eyes to make the color really "pop" - maybe some natural soft lighting outdoors or with a window would be good. I love your idea to shoot while he was holding the light though - its a great shot.

    I like the one of him holding the light the best. It conveys a child's sense of curiosity in the world around him. To us these everyday objects seem mundane or boring. To them they are brand new and intriguing(sp).
