I was out in the tropical dry forests near Concepcion, where some legal loggers were working. They spend about a month at a time harvesting different sections of the forest, camping with their families as they go. This boy, part of the dozen, was clearly shy and unaccustomed to visitors so deep in the forest.

A great child portrait and also a very well done colormatching. The contrast between soft vulnerable child and truck is also strong.
I think it would gain from a cropping of the top so that you loose the horn.

Hi Christian, Wonderful shot of inocense, love the way his shirt matches the truck, his trousers look to big & he looks dwarfed against the headlight, brilliant portrait of this LITTLE boy, very good capture, kind regards Wilson.

Hi Christian, this is a very nicely composed portrait of the boy set on the fender of the truck. The colour match and contrasts add significantly to this shot.
