Otherwise, cool dude....Smile

Cheers guys.

The space, for me, creates a sense of isolation within the frame and complements the emotion on the boy's face.

No vignette added Phil. The darkening is light fall off from the window. It was pretty gloomy in there and this was shot at ISO1600 with a burst of flash for fill and a catcher in the eyes.

That expression is just class, and thinking about your comments the space around him does give a feeling of isolation.

Thanks John but it's obviously not so good when you have to explain it.
Maybe people don't expect subtlety from me on ePz?

Boyd, it's more me thinking how I would have done it, I would have gone for a closer image and missed the isolation the space gives.

More a reflection that anything else.

Remove the "from me" part, and I think you pretty much have it covered...
