A beautiful shot of a very handsome young man. Kids at that age can be very difficult to photograph, but your son looks like a pro. I really like the orange stripes in his shirt, they give the picture an additional "pop" and complement his eyes so well.

As much as I like my 85 1.8 version that L version is just amazing. I'd like to see more from this lens.

Thanks for all the kind words. Mike took a look at your comments and was beaming. They may help me next time he's relunctantly posing! He can get quite silly.
