Olá JeanPaul,

Very good portrait in B&W with great contrast, brightness and sharpness.

Excellent image here, Jeanpaul.

The strong lighting by the fill in flash works perfectly in my opinion, even with the harsh shadow under the chin.
Really great cheeky smile from the subject too. This would not have anywhere near the impact if he wasn't covered in sand.
Great story being told in what you've captured.

Love the vignetting and shallow depth of field.


a simple portrait that realy tells a story the details are excellent
tfs regards bryan

What a happy momment by an excellent portrait lights,colours,details all are great well done JEANPAUL ROLLET.

Bonjour Jean Paul,

A nice picture from a cute boy with his innocent smile!

I like his shining eyes and the charm with which his face is glowing.
Well contrast to a nice BG and quite well management of exposure except a bit of OE the sand (lying on his head) is reflecting in the natural portrait work.
