Hello from the Critique Club.
First looking at your photo, youíve included a chair, and while youíve included a person, but they arenít posed in a traditional fashion for portraiture. More specifically, and as others have noted as well, we cannot see the boys face. A big part of portraiture is who is in the picture, showing us their face is key to this. As far as your title goes, I think including the mother would have been a more successful approach to depicting this. If she was the subject, we would see an important part of her life- that of being a parent. We can all relate to this and understand it readily, and those glances that people give their children are often exceptional for captures like this because they show adults doing things they rarely do- being silly, making faces, or being more expressive than usual. Regarding technical details, I think your photo is strong and well done. Contrast is pretty good throughout, and I like the lines of the bench leading us towards where the boy is looking. The reflection on the car in the background is slightly distracting, but not overly so. Iíll echo Lydia on this as well, that this photo would have been better served for a different challenge.

I wish I could see what he's looking at. I think it would add to the photo. Great shot though

I like the photo, but without his face is doesn't make much of a portrait.

A portrait, in my opinion, shows the face of the person. I like this... but not really well for the challenge.
