Totally

Love seeing red heads in ads.

I wonder if the photo was sourced internationally. With that incredibly clear pale skin he doesn't look like he lives in Australia.

He's a beautiful child.

I saw an exquisite little girl with that colouring at the beach last weekend.

She was playing with her brunette, tawny skinned sister....

I had flashbacks.  The 70s were a bad time for the pallid... especially those with overcautious (for the times) parents.... Stupid hat. Stupid t shirt. All while my sister frolicked pretty much naked!

His hair is a great colour, but he looks to be an average looking kid, nothing particularly special about him.

Striking yes.  Good-looking no.

I love his hair colour, and he has beautiful eyes, but I would've said quirky looking, not good-looking.   shrug.gif

It feels very odd to be discussing a small child like that however.  nno.gif

My little one has the same skin and eyes, but not that awesome hair! (Though I love her golden curls just as much biggrin.gif )

Why? Complimenting a child is not wrong.....far out, what a depressing thought that we can't comment on a stunning child.

If she'd said he was sexy I can understand...but striking????  huh.gif

I have a boy like him. His hair is not as dark tho... but same colour skin and blue blue eyes.. he is very popular at school... not sure if that is due to his hair or him being a clown...

Red hair is more popular these days

Yeah i don't really notice pictures of kids in ads and articles usually, but i noticed this kid. I don't think good looking and striking are  mutually exclusive, and someone can definitely be good looking because of their striking looks.

Photoshop strikes again, either that or a filter on the lens? all the pics have had the colour altered to make the red more  prodominant, a nice effect but still..

I agree I think this is a very odd thread to be putting up someone else's child to be commented on about looks (as with only a photo what else is there to comment on).

Yes I noticed the photo effect. Really suits his colouring though.

Very cute boy.

My first has auburn red hair, pale skin and dark dark eyes. He use to turn heads as a small child.
DS2 came out with sandy/light brown ordinary every day hair but I wished he'd had the red.
I hoped hoped hoped DS3 would have the red hair dark eyes and he does.  wub.gif

Don't ask me where either of them get it from. DH and I both have dark brown hair, no red in the family at all!!!

I love seeing red haired kids though. They're stunning.  original.gif

Ack, where to begin? So, not only am I the mother of the boy in question, but also the photographer. For a good amount of you, thank you for the kind words and compliments.

The one remark I would like to make, however, is on the image itself and the editing. I have posted a before/after on my FB page of this particular shot. I do not like heavily edited images, especially of my own children. Not going to lie, the comments about the photoshopping were a tad irksome. For this one, I removed some chip dust from around his mouth and simply brightened/color corrected, as this is used as a stock photo for Getty Images: http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.a...t=Tanya+Little#

The before/after can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=493...e=1&theater

I also do not use filters. All three of my boys have their own unique shade of red/orange and does not need any enhancing by me. I actually have to banish some red tones from many of my photos because of the cast their hair leaves on their faces.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

I found this forum through the Flickr Stats page.
