I had him pose for me in an uncluttered spot by the window. Calculations to b/w by multiplying red and green channels. No crop.

Hi there,

It is very interesting that I am critiquing your photo :) I will try to do my best.

For the challenge, I just can't see relativity, the photo looks pretty new to my eyes. However, even though I might be voting low for that reason, I really like the photo technically and compositional(ly). All my attention is on his face no matter where I look, which is perfect. His head is separated from background very successfully, without a disturbance, such as bright light. The window is the key to all, next to kid's face. It does tell a story... Maybe your point was the story rather than image itself.

I really do like this photo. I wish it would be in a different challenge, maybe "Black and White" or "portrait".

I didn't vote, but this caught my eye. The mathematician in me can't help but notice how the angle of the window echoes the one formed by the child's profile and stripe on his shirt. Whatever that's worth. I think it's great.
