This is a very good portrait, it really conveys how happy he is. The tight crop on the face helps to strengthen the emotion.

I like B&W very much, and this is very well done with good D-Max and D-Min. The tonal range however is a little shallow. Just a tad more contrast in the flesh tones would add just the snap needed. Having said that, I donít think the lack of contrast is that distracting from the impact of the image. A critique of any work of art is open for debate.

This is a very well done image. Keep up the good work and I hope to see more of your work in the future.

The background is a little busier than I care for. A shallower DOF would have reduced this problem.

Seems overprocessed

a bit too soft, (perhaps too much zoomed in)

Not very sharp... did this have a run in USM? Some strange textures in the hair, not sure what caused this. His right eye needs a catchlight and although the smile is nice, I'd have tried a few more shots to get a slightly better expression in his eyes.

A little too pixelated, but a great capture of a happy boy.

Like the b & w. But wonder if the color would not have given it a little more something, zing.

Well captured......personally I do not think B&W is fitting with this photo, color would have better conveyed the warmth from his happiness

And he looks happy, too! He has a nice glow to his face. I only wish the image were a little bit sharper, though this is a nice photograph.
