Another photo of the same kid from yesterday. They saw me camera as I was walking around one fine morning around dawn. Right away they grabbed me and asked me to take their pictures. Having only bought the camera a few days ago, I was still trying to figure out how best to use it. Between him and his friend I must of shot 100 photos. I guess you can say they were my first subjects with the DSLR.

Wonderful portrait Mark!
great focus on the eyrs, and fantastic contrast between the face and the right side of the picture!

i like his eyes but imo the dof it too shallow and also the cropped mouth looks strange..

I like this one better than yesterday's. I think that the close focus on some of the kid's features as well as the very blurred background are great. I do agree with Khmelins that a fuller mouth would be nicer, bit still great shot.

i've heard once.... just as long the focus is on eyes - that is all that matters.
And it is! Although there are same areas which are not but I think this is just fine (I exprience the same 'problems').
Again, beautiful portrait, love the softness... even though it is done with a digital camera.
Again.... the crop a little bit too high. Lips are part of his smile too.. to bad you did not include them.
sorry, out of little green smiley faces

Very nice Mark. I like your DOF and colours. This kids eyes show his happiness so you could probably get away with cropping the mouth. Why don't you try it in a WS...I'd be interested in seeing the result.
