Re: My Son: thoughts on composition etc?

I think I'd like to see a hair more texture through the ladder at the height of his hand. The hand looks a little disembodied without a little hint of shapes behind the ladder there. The flat black is very effective and powerful throughout, and even there it is graphically very very good. If it did not have the effect of making the hand look separate, it would be perfect as is.

So, I'd use curves, possibly selectively in just that region, to open the shadows up there just the tiniest amount so the the eye can believe in the boy behind the ladder.

Everything else looks great, excellent concept, superbly executed!
