I knew this was yours - I'd recognize that little red-head anywhere! I hoped that you would do well with this and in a Free Study I think anything above 50th percentile is a really good finish considering the amazing competition that always goes into them. Congratulations!

Very cute - typical little boy moment. I like the crop and the quiet color tones - and the black back works very well. His skin is a wee bit washed out on his chest but my eye goes to his face anyway. 7

Adding some shadows to the subject would make this more interesting.

The face is good here. The crop I'm not sure about, just losing the elbows..
