On the deck of a ferryboat, in the Aegean sea.
Hot and windy, but he seems not to carry about, gone in thoughts.
Take a few shots from him, he didn't take notice of me.
Scanned from slide, cropped for the square format.

Obviously his inside world has been too busy looking for some answers or problem solving ways, so it is quite understandable you have been free to take as many shots of him as you want..:-) I think that his wind ruffled hair, the gazing look and his hands touching so softly his face /with this heavy expression/ is what makes this picture great! The framing by me is also the right one, as shows the boy's pose without including any other distracting objects. And just to add one more thing: the blue tones in background match so well the overall mood! Very well done!

nice work janos. the focus is soft but the mood is very well captured. the colorful background is great too. A sharper focus could nicely separate him from the background.

Janos, the wonderment of a life still unfolding is well depicted in this photo of the boy deep in his pensive pose.

Very nice portrait Janos. Nice hair. He seems to be in another world. Good.The colors are lovely.

Good shot, Janos. Nice colors and good DOF. I like the square format and the child's position in the frame. I guess you shot from very far but the quality is OK. Could be a bit more focuse I guess.
btw - no hard feeling..this is not my way.

What a small cherub of a child. Sweet little hands remind me of how little my children used to be. His problems are huge, to him. Terrific POV and framing. :o)
