you have a nice story you are trying to tell but the angle/ perspective really needs to be moved so that child is more the main subject and not the goal post

i like the effect of the sun, but the rest of the shot is just a tad too soft and flat to be really effective, I think

Judgeing by the title the focus should be the child. That being said I would like to see more of him, crop tighter, less of the sky above the goal I think would be good. A different angle would work to get more of his body in the shot. I'd say play up the colors more also, this image has really dull colors.

I like what you were going for...but, I feel like I need to see more of the child and what he's doing.

Looks like the goal and the goalie are out of focus.

a little too dark. I'd rather see the sun more blown out and a cleaner silhouette of the kid.

A little too dark on the base...this loses a lot of the subject interest and story.
