Lol! Can't help you with the lighting I'm afraid - but if your son would like to join the Junior Gallery he'd be welcome!!! Grin

I like this one better than the one currently in the Critique Gallery, Chris. Your son holds the viewer's attention because he is doing something, and looking straight ahead. I think that if you could have got just one of his eyes in view, it would provide a connection with the viewer, too. The costume is fun, but those big eyes are an enormous distraction. Also, if you have a plain wall, door or sofa, it would make a better background. Your flash looks ok but has given you a strong shadow on the door, and has also made those big bug eyes much brighter.

Thanks for your comments. Looking closer at the background I see what you mean about the background, unfortunately for me they were both taken quite spontaneously so I couldnt really select the ideal background. My son has hit that terrible 2 and won't do what we ask so posing him is out of the question Grin I'll try and work on my composition
