Would have recognized the bvy boy, but for all the light/the pastelry, the technique is NOT transparent. Not to swell any bvy heads, this is gorgeous.

Wow. I wish I'd voted this challenge now. This is excellent! And I agree with Michelle - your son is a very good looking young man.

haha what a deceiving title. I've done this before but not in portraits. It's a gorgeous shot! Good looking young man too :)

I'm sure I've seen advertising posters with this type of image, so watch out, you're in danger of becoming mainstream this way :)

Ha! Hardly, although it is a bit sharp. Good lens whack! You are right, the muted colors and low contrast work well.

Well whacked, but only a pseudo-10.
