Beautiful eyes and such a sweet smile. A very handsome young man. A lovely portrait!! TFS

Excellent portrait, natural relaxed expression, very handsome young man and amazing hat!

Even with flash, this is a good portrait David. (Normally flash is a very unflattering way to light a subject.)
There's enough ambient light to give this shot dimension and depth, though, with good composition and crop.
Well done

Hi David,
Great portrait, excellent color and focus , wonderful smile and a great twinkle in those eyes! TFS

H David,
great portrait. Your son looks like native in the hat. Too bad you cropped him so much. But his energy is out there. Thx. Petr
