    And shouldn't we learn something from that...?

    Like my Destini, she doesn't call it Gith, Emo, or such, she just puts on her gear! Her doctor's, and nurses loved it all! It brought back college years, and some were not much older than she, nor, I! I'm 38, she was 16 nearly 17 then.

    I applaud your forward thinking and acceptance of your child's choices in dress, gender , mate choices, and anything else I'm missing. Good job parental unit!

    My Gothic Son

    Just let the kid be.

    Whether he grows up to be a true rebel throwing molotovs, or a white collar with a boring life, or an artist contemplating the vanity of all, or whatever, one thing is for sure.

    He will laugh with his naiveté and actions when he was younger.

    No matter how many or how grave the "mistakes" (or more like, decisions) you make, you *always* become wiser, than if you played it safe.

    You mentioned tattoos.
    You know what I think when I see an old tatted man?
    This dude sure lived his life, sure as he'll made lots of mistakes, and definitely has some good advice and insight to offer.

    Wow, I can't believe I've just gone through 8 pages of people faffing about the kid in the photo with hardly any comment about the photo itself!
    What a waste of time.
    Anyway, going back to the topic of this thread (the photo, in case someone forgot it), on my screen the photo looks quite contrasty, the blacks don't have any details and the highlights looks blown out, especially on one side of his face, where the skin looks white, without details. Someone may argue that it works with the subject matter of the picture (a goth kid, according to the title), and I could agree with that but I'm not a fan of how we completely lose the right eye in a pool of black and how his legs seem to merge with the black seat.
    On the other hand, it might just be my monitor, it's hard to judge a print online.
    Personally I'm not 100% sure about the crop either, why did you crop his feet? The cropped feet aren't a major issue, but maybe it would have been better to crop a little higher.
