This is my baby. Mohawk has now gone bye-bye thank god!

Those are my broken glasses. Broke them several years ago about 2 weeks after I got them. Now they are just good prop pieces. It was a little cool outside when we took the pic so he is kind of fogging up the lense.

Terrific shot, Michelle! The lighting, composition, pose, and his expression are all right on. No idea why the voters didn't go higher. But look at the commenter average! :)

Wonderful portrait. I like the slight wry smile on the child's face. Fits the way those glasses are hanging there. I also really like the touch of pink/red at the bottom.

I recognised your boy straight away...and as you said way better without the mohawk.

I thought this was a lovely shot, especially liked the tilt of the head which contrasted against the zip of his top (great colours by the way). Super sharp too. Being a glasses wearer it was the fogging of the lens by the nose that made me laugh though...man we have all been there

I love the lighting and blurred background. The skin looks so child-smooth, with an overall smooth yet sharp feeling (did you use a blur layer?). Nice!

Nice simple background. The framing is good. I don't like the condensation in the glasses. The picture could do with more contrast.
