    What should I do with this photograph?

    I snapped this photo of my kid, and now the family is saying I should "do something" with it. Check it out here.

    Sorry, if you use IE6, the template is messed up and you have to scroll down (Firefox looks fine).

    I think the family is talking about submitting to a contest or magazine or something, but I'm open to any ideas, and any criticism. I think it's pretty neat (just a "random" photo I took and decided to b&w it), but of course, I'm partial.

    TBH, I would prefer to use it in some sort of F/OSS-benificial way, but nothing comes to mind. Really, I just figured I would put this out here to show off my kid and my stroke of photographic luck (it really was luck, not any sort of creativity; he was sunbathing to help with jaundice).

    Wonderful image! I would rotate it about 1 or 2 degrees counter clockwise.
    You did get lucky - in more ways than one.

    If you have PS or GIMP, touch it up a little bit. That's a very nice picture.

    Gimp it! (this really should become a trademark promoting Gimp)

    leave it exactly as is...it is perfect....blow it up into a large size, have it specially framed....make a limited number of signed copies.....maybe 10 and sell them exclusively to high-end art galleries and ask for a minimum of $10, 000 to $20, 000 dollars each....then put any money you make away for your beautiful child's college fund...

    perhaps invest in a RothIRA in his name so the investment is enough to carry your baby through grad school...

    I'm an optimist.

    Have a look here http://www.bytephoto.com/ You will be able to enter into a competition where you will get some professional criticism and scoring.
    The world is your playground why don't you play.
