[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my son Rafael, 11 yr old. As usual,he was hiding from me trying to avoid having his picture taken. He was sitting on the floor in front of the sofa with that yellow pillow in front of his face. When he lowered it to see if I had given up CLICK!

I am posting this not only because he is an extremely handsome boy (dare to disagree!!), but because I really liked the composition with only his head showing and the touch of yellow in the middle of all the white sofas.

Despite the use of 1.8 aperture, focus was not bad, IMHO.

Nice capture! Very soft lightining and pensive gaze. Beautiful colors too. Portraits are my favorite subtype of photogrpahy.

Adolescência , aqui dizemos "aborrecencia". Parecem que estão sempre se chateando com os pais e com os mais velhos ... Entre eles (os adolescentes) a vida é "maneira"!
Boa captura,Robert, o exato flagrante.
Um abraço e Boa Sorte pra você e para o Rafael, seu filho.

Hi Robert

Ficou legal esta foto, realmente o amarelo destacou bastante com o branco do sofá.

Meu filho também é assim, minha esposa sempre fala preciso arrumar o cabelo e etc.


PS.: Parece que somos uma panela....

Hello Robert

Very eye catching result here.
I do agree he's an extremely handsome boy n u'd be a proud father :)

Nicely taken the yellow among all white looks fantastic!
I'd have preferred placing the handsome boy's face more on the upper left side in the frame and more yellow in frame.

f/1.8 works pretty fine in this case!

Good job

i like it especially for the fact that the yellow stands out among the whites :) the depth of field is amazing :) this one has the 'stock' image look to it, for some reason :)

handsome he is :)

haha, cute one! He has a look of resignation of his face . The colors here are the real standout feature .. his face and dark hair, and the yellow pillow against the otherwise white surroundings ... very nice.
And no, I won't disagree! This boy will be a heartbreaker ... hold your breath - just a few more years.
Nice job Robert.

Uma ótima captura Robert. Ótimo desfoque no primeiro plano e o amarelo não nos distrai da fisionomia do seu filho (muito bonito diga-se de passagem)
Um abraço

I really like the composition here and also the colours. The dash of yellow highlights the shot and the lighting on Rafael's face is just perfect without any glare. It is a very cute capture, especially since he didn't want the photo taken in the first place, and you had patience enough to wait for him to be curious enough to peek from behind the pillow. Well done!
