Great capture. Would love a different crop though, either tigher on him or showing a little more on the bottom. Preferably the first of the two.

Great composition and subject matter. Lighting and detail are good, rich in color without being over-saturated. ((8))

what a beautiful capture. i hope that this is not being overlooked in this super-sized challenge, and that you are getting good feedback. i hesitate to criticize, but i do think you would have had a stronger entry if you had really cropped tightly. the image has nice bokeh, but the background is so large, it takes away from all the wonderful detail you've caught in his face and dress. oh well, that's just my opinion. you have a fine image, and that's what matters. good luck with this, and all the challenges yet to come!

This is a great picture. I like the way the man is dresses in red and has a medacine wheel around his neck. It looks as if he is looking back on the past.

I think that cropping this so that more of the picture is visible on the left would help. By aligning the man on the right 1/3rd line, it would give him more space to look into. I do love the colors and the depth of field. And check out that bokeh... :-)

Nice crisp focus. An excellent candid. I was going to suggest this might work better in black and white, but on second glance I really like the vivid colours here, it would be a shame to lose them.

love the red shirt against the green background -- gives it sick striking contrast

Great background, feathers in corner a little distracting.

Nice capture. Would have done well in the bokeh challenge! Maybe crop a tad off the right so he's less centered.
