This is my son, taken shortly after our arrival in London a couple of weeks ago. The London underground train system is excellent, timely and easy on the wallet. We became experts within the first hour. This station is obviously Oxford Circus, the center of premier shopping in London.
As each of my three kids graduated from high school I took them each on a long trip one-on-one with their dad (that's me) and I jokingly say they went on a trip with me whether they wanted to or not. Lucky for me all three kids enjoyed their trips and I'm sorry to say that the one shown here in this photo is #3 out of 3 so he's the last one.
This photo was taken on a Saturday and today is Saturday and my personal policy is to post either fun or cutting edge stuff on TE on Saturdays with little or no regard for points the photos may or may not recieve. Happy Saturday to all.

I like how out of balance this is with your son on the left. The direct view works well, too.

I really like the simplicity of this image. The way the boy looks to you is nice. I think there is a certain smile around his eyes. Nice shot.

However there is something wrong with the left side. Is this the effect of pp? Did clone anything?
The left side seems to be less sharp than the right one. There is something like chromatic aberration on the edges of the trousers (particularly on the knee). And I do not like the cut on the foot.
Still it's nice London portrait.
