Alone

By GarethRobinson  
A re-edit of an old favourite pic of my youngest son before he set of to school for a world war 2 theme day.

It was shot in my backyard and used a softbox for the light, and asked him to act as if he lost his mother during a bombing raid in ww2.

Im thinking of putting this up for display at my camera clubs exhibition in Jan next year.
Something different from the norm.
Any feed back on this much appreciated, and a better title to suit would be great, if you can think of something.
Cheers Gareth

I like the composition, the colours...but it's the subject's face expression that seems not authentic....it feels like he wants to pretend crying...hmm...but I like the picture!
