Wish this was advanced editing so I could clean up his face a little. Of course, you aren't a little boy if you don't have a little dirt on your face every now and then. :-) In his hand was a leaf that started out big and beautiful, but quickly became a crumpled mess. :) Just trying to take advantage of the pretty fall foliage.

Robbed! One of my very few 9s and still think so. What are voters thinking?

Wow. That is a low score for this. Not only is the shot good but the bokeh actually enhances the subject.

are you even kidding me? 5.7? oh i don't think so. whatever dipshits gave this a 1, 2, or 3 clearly have no concept of what bokeh is. part of me wonders if they're even aware this is a photography site.

Ridiculous.

this should have finished no lower than top 10! i just don't understand DPC voters anymore. this is a beautiful portrait, Jen, and one you should be proud of.

you were robbed by the anti-kid folks I think. I gave this a ten - it's an awesome candid and has perfect bokeh.

Oh, wow, I'd give this 11 if there were an 11. It is beautiful! The colours are like those of a classic painting, the composition is just right, the bokeh really works to enhance the subject, the expression is darling. ~10

This is a beautiful photo with beautiful light and colors in the background. The bright light top middle is a little distracting.

A beautiful portrait which is enhanced by good bokeh - there should be lots of this in a "bokeh challenge" but so far no luck.

Very nice bokeh. Good enough to be one of those standard portrait backdrops. Oh yeah, and cute kid too!
