Really cute kid but his face looks way too plastic in the post processing.

I agree that it is well composed and a nice looking kiddo, but I think the exposure must have been underexposed and you have exceeded the limits of what Shadow/Highlight will do cleanly..... It happens to most of us from time to time....I would go ahead and reshoot with different lighting...Take care....Alex

It would look much better if it had been exposed for the sunlit area of this face, instead of somewhere inbetween and then heavily PPed. The background is rather ugly too, and your aperture wasnt wide enough to blur it sufficiently for my tastes.

i think the shadow is a bit too harsh....especially considering his porcelain complexion.

Some fill in flash or the use of a reflector would have helped to balance out the highlights and shadows on his face. Cropping out the wall behind him would improve the image too.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. You've been very helpful. I have a few more questions if you don't mind.

Can someone tell me what the light ratio appears to be (1:2, 1:3, 1:9)?
I'm getting my lighting styles confused, but considering that the shot is a candid shot with only existing light, Does the light portrayal appear to be:
1) Broad Lighting
2) Short Lighting or
3) Rembrandt.

Thanks,
MJ
