You show us a wonderful and empathetic kind of portrait. The boy seems to be lost in thoughts.
The light situation here simply is gorgeous ... a little photographic work of art. In addition I like the camera orientation.
Greetings from Germany!
Despite his young age, he adds something very calm to the image. I like how the candles flicker while at the same time the boy is very still, he has a clear mind or similar. Lovely portrait in a festive holy atmosphere.
