Steve G submitted this photo. First things first, it’s usually best to have your subject looking at the camera so you can see the eyes. Also, try to focus more on your subject’s face, especially the eyes, rather than the surrounding area. In this case, the boy’s hood seems to be the area most in focus. Try placing your subject either to the left or right of the photo instead of the center. You can fix that by cropping out a piece of the right side.
