This is a great shot - made perfect by the strong clear eye contact - and what great eyes !

Really nice.

cute boy! good exposure and sharpness, like the composition and angle, don't like the blue reflection in his eyes. had desaturated the collar, too. still one of the best in the challenge

OHHHH my gosh what CUTE EYES! great processing and i love the angle and depth of field. keeping everything clear really made a difference with this shot....sooooo cute! I hate this challenge though because it is so vague, i like your title but the photo doesn't say anything about weekend to me...granted neither does my entry but you know, whatever. haha great shot! good score from me :)

This is a fabulous shot. The expression is priceless, the background seperation is perfect, the composition definately strengthens the image. Lighting is very good.

A couple of critiques, things I only mention because the overall image is so strong:

Nose is slightly OOF. You likely know this. It does distract a touch.

Eyes seems slightly milky - it'd be nice if the pupils were nice and black.

The tuft of hair of the left side of his face is a little distracting. Maybe caused by the collar? You might be able to clone this out under Advanced rules, though it might make me nervous to do so.

Great job. A 9 from me.
