The background adds compositional interest but also suggests themes for the portrait, since a fence has so much symbolism in it. Combined with your title, I imagine the child will always be figuring out ways around fences. He also seems a little saddened by it, even though he's not looking at it. But the fence is contrasted by the sky that is reflected in his eyes. I think I also see the reflection of an adult figure. Is he a fence, an obstacle to the sky? Or is he the gatekeeper that will open up new worlds? 9

Great job with the composition and b/w conversion. The focus is spot on. And what a really wonderful capture of the moment. The background adds to the story of the title , like the baby went out beyond the fence to explore. It's OOF just enough but not too much to become unrecognizable. The background bokeh here might not be what some voters are looking for but it's just enough for me. Maybe a little more OOF and it would've been perfect for this challenge . Good luck with this one :)

Not what I would consider boken, to much detail in background to me.

I like this shot. Beyond the typical kid shot into more of an artistic feel. The black and white was the way to go. I think it allowed your background to compliment the child well.
