this weekend I took some photos of a work colleague and her two boys, while I was setting up the lights before my sitters arrived, I had some help from #1 son, who took great pleasure in winding up and down my tripod as fast as he could and using the radio flash triggers like TV remote controls, when my patience finally ran out and I told him off, this is the expression that I got, poor little thing.

absolutely priceless

 

I would perhaps crop off little (bottom) just above the marks on his arm.

 

nicely processed too.

Beautiful shot. The events led up to a real expression.

Really good portrait. As Longhiker said, a real expression.

You can't beat a natural portrait and this looks very natural.

Great job indeed, one for the album certainly.

I also think the processing is just perfect.

It's a decent shot, but the problem I have with it is that the right hand is missing out of frame and this upsets the balance of the image for me. It would be much better to show the complete pose.

thanks Dallas, I also think it would look better with the hand included, but sadly for me there is no more in the frame.
