    This is a competently taken picture of your nephew (or whoever!).

    One suggestion is to try not to put the subject dead centre in the frame.

    A "portrait" view is when the frame is vertical, in contrast to a "landscape" view where the frame is horizontal.

    But you need not be bound by the rules. Many of my portraits are taken in "landscape" mode.

    Its kind of blur... Hand shake due to low shutter speed at 1/25... Try at least 1/60 if not use the flash...

    Yep, as what r52lanc has mentioned, you need to take it in portrait position instead of landscape. You've got too much background in this picture.

    For me, mood is very important. Try to capture this kid when he shows his termperament, happy, angry, etc. This shot of yours is neither here nor there.

    Remember, always focus on the eyes, and control your depth-of-field, taking care of camera shake of course.

    Your colour is too blend. Saturate it!
