Nicely done. It's a bit dark but that adds to the mood of the photo.

I moved your title to the comment line and added the challenge title to the subject line.

He's got a sleepy look. But very cute. Reminds me of my grandson.

Technicalities,

I would shoot at a lower angle if possible so that he's isn't looking up at you.

It appears you used flash probably because there wasn't enough light note the shadow under the chin. If you conitnue to shoot picsc of him and you will, try doing as much as possible in natural light.

Shoot lots pictures. (In other words, practice, practice practice) Many will be duds but hey, they're just blips on a memory card.

Aloha
