It´s easy to catch him laughing - harder to see him sad.

This is a great shot! I have three boys and none of them will cooperate for portraits. Any shot I get has to be a candid, which makes it tough. This appears to be a candid and you did a great job of capturing his happiness and enthusiasm! I also like the way you cropped it. Was that intentional? I spent another minute or two trying to come up with a way to improve the shot...and I can't find anything to do better! Well done and good luck in the challenge!

Very natural expression. Contrast and focus are great. I love the composition, how the boy is on the right part of the frame. My favorite this week. Good luck!

This is wonderful capture. Really good cropping and facial expression. I would like to have a little more contrast, because I feel that the face is a little too grey.

This is an absolutely beautiful portrait. One of my favorites for the challenge! I love that smile, you caught him just at the right second. Great use of background... doesn't detract from the boy, and is interesting, almost gives it more of a 3d look. I also love your cropping which is very pleasing to the eye. Beautiful use of black and white! Solid 10! Great job!

Great capture of this child. Might have preferred a bit plainer background. I also really like the crop and contrast in this photo.

A beautiful expression on this face......... i love the shock of white/blonde hair and the overall contrast and tone is good, which makes this a special pic........

You are luck to have such a good model. I am not sure why but his face looks grainier than it should based upon the background. It mat be a little overprocessed, it shows in his teeth also. I do fell that a lot of us get too close to the monitor and don't get back to look, so we just pick them apart from about three inches. I backed away and have the same thoughts, good picture with its faults.

Wonderful shot, but I would have preferred less border. (bet you're hearing a lot of that huh?) I take one point away. (9)
