I think you ARE a romantic. Look at Lesson 4 and the lesson on Rule of Thirds--both a very wistful and romantic look at childhood. This is no exception with the wardrobe choice. I love his little teeth but I either want to see his whole hand or not at all. Your light looks really good too--good job!
I think my style is classic photojournalistic but it took my husband reading the "label" and said that I was a romantic, so the more I thought about it, I was like I do shoot alot of that. I think this is an example of it, as it has the hat and the old man look, I have him sitting on my leather chair. This is natural light coming thru my living room window.
