That is one serious scar, and look on his face, bumping up.

I'm not a fan of selective desat, but putting that aside while grading today. Instead, I'm grading overall composition and whether i feel like the item that is colored draws my interest or if i feel like it pulls my interest away from something else that i find more personally meaningful in the picture.

Let me say first that i love this shot- hate the selective desat.

The boy's posture, gesture and that look! What a photograph. That scar- it all draws me in. The boys in the background are a bit distracting. But that is a big nit pick- as I didn't even notice them till I started to study the picture further and thought to look to see what the background was. Even now, knowing they are there, my eyes are drawn back to the boy.

Overall I think this would work much better as a full b/w. I find myself wondering what the color of his clothing is suppose to mean/ represent and My only guess is that perhaps it is the color an order of monks wears.

So i'm not fond of that being highlighted, as I think I could have hazard a guess that he was a monk without any color in the shot. And, unfortunately, the color is a bit distracting in this shot. Would love to see this worked as a full b/w.
