Just finished with a photo session of the little guy in the photo and I took this one of he and his dad as they were packing up to leave. Loved the interaction between the two but the key light was right behind dad which created some harsh shadows and highlights. There was also a bright yellow jacket in the background on the lower right. Messed with the curves and lowered the saturation and then I added the vignette to deemphasize the background clutter. I'm interested in hearing if the post processing is ok or if it's over the top. Any ideas on how to improve it?

Honestly, I think it works very well. Perhaps a bit of vignetting to add emphasis to the center/action. It's not necessary, though.

First time I have liked a white vignette and seen that it was functional (your comment) - great detail on the hair BTW....I like this shot.....well framed, not over top at all.

I like it, the yellow circle by his head takes some attention away.I would work on that
