Thanks to everyone who voted. I was at the lake on the University of Florida Campus with my son and there was an alligator hanging out. We snapped this goofy picture and I turned it in for the challenge. Kind of a portrait gone wrong. I did nothing to it as I am new to taking pictures and basically do it for fun. I realized the alligator was out of focus and the ground behind my son was ugly....but we had fun and it turned out to be a cute photo. Thanks again. I had fun entering my first challenge.

I'll be honest. I don't really like this photo. The alligator kinda looks like a giant turd floating in muddy water and the boy's expression is too contrived. On the plus side the lighting on the boy's face is good.

ok, you made me laugh right out loud! With a little more post processing (dodge and burn, little more contrast, tweak Hue/sat) this would be a contender. I wonder what that floating lump is - maybe could crop that out? 6

Great expression! Background is distracting though IMHO.

Thanks! You're photo made me chuckle - something I needed after a long day at work. He looks like a handful.

Is there something in the water coming after him? I like the focus, but not the composition or background. To me, a portrait is posed and tells the viewer something about the subject.

I love how the colors in his shirt compliment his hair and eyes. Not crazy about all the background as that tends to make this more a candid or snapshot rather than a portrait.

OK, I laughed:) I can relate, I shot over 100 of my kids and did not use any of them.

you met the challenge on demand. I think a portrait should express personality to be exceptional, and you did just that. Good job.

The fun shots of shooting kids are great!! On the down side, my eye was immediately attracted to the object on the top left, and I find I keep looking a it instead of the boy. I find the portrait much more pleasing with the top of the mage cropped to remove the distractions along the top. JMO
