Here is what I did with it real quick. Cropped a bit off the top, brought in the black point just a bit and dropped down the mid tones just a hair.

The totally blown out sky hole is a huge distraction. Make it an 8x10 and get rid of that.

It's definitely better than the catcher and cell phone pics. It'd be nice to crop out the white sky completely but otherwise you'd cut off his fingers. Is it possible to shoot again but aim just a touch more downward?

Not if, instead of cropping all the way, he clones in some of the foliage or wall.

technically good, but i wouldn't release an image with a pose and facial expression like that.

Some obvious progress has been made, but there's still quite a ways to go.

I'm still not a fan of the flash. What kind of flash are you using?

I think it might look a whole lot better if you could get him to smile a little and maybe just lean up against one of the brick walls instead of looking like he's holding them both up with both arms. The focus on this eyes still looks a little soft.

Just noticed you're using pattern metering. Try using spot metering and just focus on the eyes, then re-compose and take the pic.

I'm not sure what other people think of Promaster, but all my experience with tier products tells me they're cheap and useless.
