Now I know you had fun photographing this guy. He looks like a lot of fun. It's so hard to teach someone how to compose and how to process photos so that they come alive over the internet. I wish I had a hundred students in front of me, with me, to see how I work, not only in the field shooting but on a computer processing images. I like your candid shots. They have a lot of potential.

1. Enlarge the photo so when you crop you don't lose resolution
2. Crop so you take out at least a portion of the blank sky and position his eyes at the 2/3 from the bottom position. Also position him slightly off center to the left.
3. Brighten his face and hair & darken the area in the background to call more attention to his face.
4. Remove the yellow coloring from the whites of his eyes and teeth.
5. Sharpen the whole image, add a light vignette & check levels.

Now, no matter where you try to look at the image your eyes are drawn to his. It's all about composition and highlighting your subject.
