Football Mad

....yes, my Nephew is literally football mad!

Taken during a brief glimpse of sunshine this afternoon. The weirdness above each shoulder is actually a bush in the background - it couldn't have been in a worse place; either that or he couldn't have!

I also dislike how the sun has washed out the hair on his right hand side, but overall am happy with it - I might revisit the shoulder problem in PS when I have more time.... processed in LR & PS (his Mum loves it, so I guess that's the main thing!)

Re: Football Mad

Hi Derek,

The bush is a distraction but I bet his mother didn't even notice, all she saw was a wonderful picture of her adorable son. The sun-bleached hair is another minor point, but the price you sometimes pay for taking portraits in interesting, rather than flat, light. You can pick holes in it all you like, but the fact is it's still a lovely photograph which any parent would treasure.
