Well this is somewhat of candid shot. I was hoping to get more of the boy's face but I'm trying to get them as naturally as possible so I couldn't get the boy's attention. And even if I tried to his attention, it is placed squarely on his father.

This was taken in my medical school's sponsored medical mission where we students had to circumcise the boys who were brave enough LOL But I was also in charge of photos so I managed to get a few shots during the event.

I was trying different black and white edits, having added a bit yellow here, and resulted in an interesting effect. But that is just me, so I'm biased! :lol:

Tell me if you like this shot and the post processing, or even tell me if you don't like it and tell me what I should've done; should I simply have gotten their attention, etc.

Any comments, good or bad, is simply cool with me! ;)

Cool photo but for me I would prefered it if you'd moved so the boys face is showing too. His expression could make a good photo great if you understand what I'm trying to say.

It looks great, the kid is talking to his father and his father is deep in thought. I think this shot is very good, to see the kids face would not make it better for me. I think its a real shot and not a pose.
