You have "captured" your son very well with this shot. The lighting on his face is nice and even - eg no shadow areas beneath the eyes.

I like the idea of having the tree as a frame for you son. My mod takes this further and crops down the left hand side (not obviously the right hand side as in the mod description). I offer this as just an alternative view.

The portrait works well in b & w but is a bit flat in my view and lacking in contrast. My mod tries to add a bit more subtle shadow areas eg beneath the branch in the foreground using the burn tool.

But certainly a lovely record of your hike.
