My second cousin, Austin. He's so cute. They just moved here from New Hampshire, and I'm so glad that I can watch him as he grows up. It's a really grainy photo, because we were inside, I didn't want to use a flash, so I kept upping the ISO.

My goal is to get above a 5.5. It would be awesome to see a 6, but I know this image is really sharp enough for voters taste...I think I will be lucky to stay above a 5.

Lol - that's an in your face shot. I like the eyes. For me, your image would also work if cropped into a square.

Nice soft focus. What wonderful editing. I love the crystal clear eyes and then the slight softness around him. The mole - how cute. This is a great honest portrait and not cheesy or forced.
