Thanks.

Well captured candid indeed! Guilty like the fox with feathers in his mouth, I'd say :lol:

I'd only suggest alittle highlight/shadow on his face to heal the slight flashflare thatmay look somewhat distracting.

Thanks for your comments. I know about the light and shadow that should be on his face. Unfortunately, this was not possible in the setting I was in.

Thanks again.

Could you show me an example of what you mean and how you would accomplish this?

Thanks.

With pleasure mate! First open the image withthe Photoshop,chose the magnetic lasso or quick selection tool toselect the T shirt of the boy first.Then find the Shadow/Highlights tool under the 'image' menu and push the Highlights slider by7-8 stops until the bright whiteness of the fabrics does notdistractfromthe subject'seyesanymore.Then you may wish to select his face to attain a bit more homogenous lighting playing aroundboth the Highlights and Shadowssliders there, but I wouldn't advise exceeding 10 stops in each one so as not to sacrifice image quality.You can, again, conceal any resulting noise using the Neat Image plug in for the selected part only. Ah....and some cropping off from the righthandside to be able to fill the frame more of the subject, which meansfarewell to the extra space for the 'bp photography'. In the end you won't attaina day and night difference of course, but just salt and pepper to an already remarkable image. So, I hope youdon't findmysimple suggestions abovealtogether unnecessary...

Cheers!
