It's a nice shot. However, the mix of light looks peculiar. It looks like his right side is lit by the setting (or rising) sun and everything else has fill flash. The color temps are disparate. I think I would have tried positioning him so that I didn't need the fill flash.

The exposure and focus look great. I'm no expert, but little Hunter looks like a giant against the background. Maybe shoot from his eye level instead of below it.

This is a great shot....good expression, lighting and eye contact, good way to get his name in and good background. It does however suffer from a way too much dose of cyan in the sky - unnatural..very distracting.

^ ^ I like the WB better in this one. Might clone the blown area in his hair, & those blue veins in his forehead.

Also, the point of view makes him look like a giant -- something like the Sta-Puff Marshmallow man.
I agree, but there's not anything inherently wrong with that, is there? If nothing else, doesn't that sort of fit with the kid's stature and body language? I mean, it's a kid with his pretend bike pretending to be a little man, and he's standing there with a confident facial expression and body stance. I could totally imagine him saying "I'm a big boy now!" And I think that making him "look like a giant" sort of reinforces that aspect.
