[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a new portrait of my 3+ year old son. This was taken close upon sunset on a over cast day at a local beach. I used a slow shutter speed with the onboard flash to remove shadows and capture the mood of the place. He is growing up pretty fast and is full of life and enthusiasm!So I thought I would share this moment with you- any comments welcome and thanks for viewing.

Taken in RAW, then adjusted/processed in LR 3.0 with square crop, resizing and frame applied in CS5.

Such a lovely portrait from your cute son, Dilshan!
I love to see him in different poses as he has such cute features.
The picture in itself is wonderful and colors are amazing for a sunset shot.
Great sharpness and perfect POV.

Hi Dilshan,
What an expression on your boy's face! Is he angry or playing the part?
He must be a good 'actor' and model with such spontaneous poses! Very cute and adorable child!
Very good photography from your part, excellent lighting and sharpness.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Dilshan, he is a cute one. Your use of the flash has worked nicely to remove shadows yet leave the bg a nice contrasting darkness.Fiona
