Go to your photo on Flickr, click share and hit the BB code button, copy what is in the box and paste here - very simple.

Great image! I really like it. My "nits" are that the color of his hair blends a bit too much with the background. Perhaps a bit more contrast in LR would help. Also, he has amazing eyes. Go into LR and make those eyes POP by ligntening them and sharpening them! :boogie:

I like the light quality, and especially the color of the light coming from behind. The sharpness is great.

I don't like that you clipped the top of the head. I don't see the purpose for this. I would love to have the golden grass creating a frame around his head. I actually like that his hair color matches the grass as that draws more attention to his eyes. I don't like the strong saturation of the blue shirt and I really don't like the white undershirt sleeves as that is much too bright.

Overall, nice job.

lol for some reason everytime I see you post I want to call you joe, like "bazooka joe" (although that may be before your time - Im old)

Anyway, I agree what this C&C and I did go to his/her Flickr, now if he/she can post a pic, then she will be 2 for 2 today
