too blown out on the side of his face, also maybe the line in the neck parallel to the chin is too strong - I like the hair, freckles shirt, chair - not the background. The lines in the background are too strong, it looks plastic like and doesn't suit.

The expression has interest and potential - he is All Boy, looks like a good kid.

I agree with Piet's comments but would add that I would get rid of the chair and crop the photo more. Although Duck seems to have gone wild about Ernst's magnolia and the unusual cropping and framing. So, who am I? Maybe this is the best of all possible crops. Memorable photo, though, that he will look back on and try to remember what time has lost. Matt

I think he's adorable, but the image makes me squint. I know you're going for high key but I think it's a little too far. S-
