So, the park behind the house is open and vibrant green, we have been playing there daily in our pod of 3 people, usually my son running around with his sword or using his "stomp rocket". This day I decided it was the perfect conditions to take a few pictures. what a happy coincidence that DPC has a natural light portrait going on!!

I hope this scores decently, I have put some effort into this but I didn't go crazy trying to be perfect with the fine details (dodging/brushing and spot sharpen/contrast on items like eyes) - i'm sure I may get dinged a bit for that, but I just want to present something that feels harmonious as a whole and work my way back into editing.

Heís very cute Ryan, try using a shallow depth of field next time to blur out the background, also use clothing thatís not so distracting.

Edited for typo.
