My Son cc please

Thought this would be a good shot to practice painting eyes. It still looks a little too photographic to me.
Your thoughts?

I think his skin needs to have the same texture as the rest of the picture.

I agree with this observation.

Meant to mention... It's an adorable photo. Just priceless. Did you shoot it?

I kind of like it the way it is, although it might be an improvement if the lighting was more atmospheric.

I was told to remove the texture from the face. I'll try again with it. Maybe a little less.

Re: My Son cc please

One comment and one question --

Comment -- he is so good looking and you have captured such an adorable expression that it's hard to think about changes. You have catch-lights in his eyes and his hair is separated from the background in color and intensity, so that's all good... and he is SO darned cute!

Question - I see that your link is called a "static link" from Flickr, and that you've done another one like this -- the image is HUGE on my browser (9inches x 8 or 9 inches) - I've never seen anything like it on this forum (except for your other post) and it is GREAT to see such an excellent image at such an enlarged size! It says it's a "link", but you don't have to click on it to see it -- it's just sitting there like an uploaded image except it's SO much bigger, and the quality is excellent.

So, Kelly, Danny, or whoever understands how this works -- is there some way that the rest of the members can get their images to show this large?

A beautiful shot of a very handsome young man. I kind of like the textured background.
