What is he thinking about?
Lens: Pentax M 50mm F1.7 Camera: Pentax K-x 

This is a picture of my son, who had just got up from his daily nap. He came out to the front porch and it was pouring rain outside. I grabbed my camera which had Pentax M 50mm f1.7 on it and was able to capture his face expression. Not sure what was his thoughts about... Maybe that it was sunny when he went to nap and now it's pouring rain...

-It was shot wide open at 1.7 (minimal processing, no cropping at all)

This example shows how great these old $50 lenses are really are, and the value of Pentax dslrs with built in image stabilization and ability to use old Pentax manual lenses.

Nominated! It looks like he is shocked by the world around him compared to dream world he just exited.

This is one of those rare photos of children that captures more than just their childhood beauty. The photo holds my attention and, yes, makes me wonder just what could he be seeing or thinking about. Beautiful shot in its simplicity. Simply beautiful.
