    Default Boy's Christmas wonder

    Merry Christmas.
    This was a quick shot that perhaps could be framed better and with facial expressions. Not sure what contributed to those light "rings" (50mm f2.0 1/20s).

    The boy looks bored or sleepy & I cant really see anything intresting in the composition
    Too much looks washed out

    colours look weird.
    left elbow kena chopped off.
    looked like the boy was pasted over a bad graphic background.

    dull picture, no face = no expression, how will i know how he's feeling or the situation in general? not enough detail to feel that it's christmas

    True, I think the Christmas surroundings were seen by me but not captured at all. Am still wondering how to approach this type of photography capturing faces of strangers. Was worried the kid's parents may suddenly pop out and question.

    i think u need to up ur aperture...but that's a fixed aperture lens right? maybe an F4 would do the trick...

    maybe u zoomed out abit, or taken a step or 2 back..that's would solve the chopped off elbow...

    Happy shooting ^^

    hmmm. the bokeh looks like spots of iodine. Looks like a science lab experiment gone wrong.

    Otherwise, a decent attempt.
