Took this shot of a friend's lil boy while we were taking Easter pictures. He got tired of smiling and wearing nice clothes and gave me this look as if to say, "Please stop taking pictures of me." This shot was pure gold.

::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
Such a cute kid ... and such a shove off look .. there is everything candid in that look.

The top of the head missing is an issue ... the image is slightly soft .. but that is not a major ...

Definately meets the challenge .. although I think that many didn't think so hence the voting.

Technical (Colour and light):
Lovely natural light and good pastel colours.

To grow its vote?:
Pays to get the whole body if you can ... hard to dictate for a candid .. but sometimes we get a candid and others don't think it is real .. there is little ways around this.

Good shot .. keep it up you are improving all the time.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

I'm not much for receiving or giving comments, but since Candids are
near and dear to my heart, I have decided to give comment on every entry
in this challenge.

A nice color portrait, but not a candid to me. Nice tones, colors, focus and child though!

focus is a bit soft, and the image is a bit flat. could have used a bit more post-processing to bring the image out. as a candid, it's ok; i can feel his discomfort, being made to dress up and pose.

more of a portrait IMO

Nice eyes. I am a bit distracted by the crop which cut off half his head. Perhaps a crop which included the whole head and less of his body would have been better.

the flash is too strong. It makes the background too dark. A better option is less flash and maybe a larger apature to blur the background more.
