    thank you all in commentme for such helpful and thoughtful comments. its really a pleasure to re-read them all now in one sitting.

    OK. I agree about the door. I should have fixed this in PP, and didn't notice until it was pointed out to me.

    I may have overdone the noise reduction giving a slightly fake look to the skin. However, this may also have been done when I was applying colour correction in LAB. The original lighting was much redder (too red in my opinion) and sort of complex coming both from candlelight on his right and a fluorescent lighting on his left. In the end I think it worked out, but it probably gave a slightly odd hue to things.

    many thanks again.

    P.S. - the door doesn't bother me at all, for what it's worth. Even after everyone else pointed it out.

    Actually, I think you could go both ways on the door as well. For me...I like the continuity of things...no bend in the table, no bend in the door jamb, you know that nit-picky annoying part of the perfectionist.

    But there is the more "irrational/spontaneous" part of me that says that the curve on the door jamb emphasizes the point of perspective of the boy.

    So there you go! More info! ;oP

    the making of another future pro!!!!!

    it's great to get kids involved. in my school there's barely anyone who shares the same passion as i do for photography. not even the art teachers.=(

    Hey, shouldn't he be working in the coal mines by now? Creativity must be repressed at an early age, before he turns into something disreputable, like an artist.
