This is our youngest son Isaac. This was one of his headshots and our agent loved it. Lighting was natural and in front of him.

I have noticed that children don't do that well in most of the challenges with large amounts of photos entered but I thought I would take a chance with Isaac anyway. They like him in the film, television, and commercial industry so why not in print.

This is a wonderful head shot! Nice and simple, yet youthful and slightly edgy.

Max, great to see you back in the challenges. This is a wonderful portrait. I did not get to it in voting, but IMO, it deserved a higher score than this. Well done.

I think the background really works well with this shot. I love the colors in it. Nicely composed.

It might be the monitor, but his skin looks quite pale and harshly lit. Nice composition, contrasting between blue of eyes and the writing on the wall.

Nicely compose and great job using thirds. Eyes are will processed and I like the background colours and balance (matching his eyes). Good Luck. 7.

Great pose and composition. I love the brick as backdrop, and his face is well lit.

Very well done portrait - I like this alot. The color of the wall matches and enhances the color of his eyes. Hopefully this is framed and hanging somewhere!

Really nice portrait, very good composition. I don't know, but maybe a little sharpening in the eyes would be a good thing, at least for web. But it's one of the nicest kid portraits I've seen so far in this challenge.

Light a little too harsh on the face. Well composed and nice Background.

Good portrait shot, but I wish the focus was on the eyes instead of the wall.

Great exposure and colour balance. Nice balance to the shot. I am sure this young man is proud of this portrait as opposed to trying to hide his school picture!
