Thanks for the comments.

For you who where guessing:
This boy is holding a canon ixus and his mother.

They stopped by for a visit and I took photos instead of talking to them. Thanks to this photo my wife is not still mad at me for it.

Terrific portrait ... great subject, clever prop, very effective & original pose. It also gives a very clear and appealing view of the subject's character. 8

A super b/w to allow the gentle unfoldment of togetherness in the family. Bumping up.

The focus seems sharpest on the strap for the S230. If your image wasn't being evaluated solely by people who will probably like to see a kid with a camera, I'd say that the photo would be stronger without it. Overall I like the shot, but I think that shooting it from a lower angle (looking up at the kid) and having a stronger catchlight would have improved the image.

This is a very touching and sensitive picture. The softness and light coloring makes me imagine family intimacy. Very good.

High quality photo. Don't love the recorder in his hand. I know how hard it is to get kids to do exactly what you want them to. My kids are always holding something or eating something. Anyway, very nice.

a budding photographer in the making? nice shot here, love the fact it's not in colour and it's a nice sharp picture, only one thing that bugs me, is there something on the kiddies nose?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2005 12:30:13 PM
Great DOF and composition! Love the expression too. At first, I thought the shot was too bright, but upon further examination I think it works - brings out the innocence, purity, and frailty of the child's expression. Really nice job.

I like this shot - shows the security a child feels as they hold tight to their parent.
Especially nice in greytone scale

07/11/2005 01:45:26 AM
Very nice. I like the light desaturated "colors". Lighting is perfect. I love the expression on the child.
