As others have said, this is a great capture. I'd like to see it in black and white or duotone maybe.

He was already there, waiting for us to gather so he could show us from the outside how the mill worked. Once we were gathered, he went back in to run the mill. It was such a great opportunity, I couldn't pass it up. I'll post the one of him looking at me later, cuz the look on his face was like, "What are you doing?" :)

Nice composition. The lighting is a little harsh IMHO. I think this would work really well as B/W or sepia tone shot. May wanna give it a try...

I really like this shot.
So much is being told here, from the age depicted on the wooden siding, to his pose in the window opening.

The more I looked at it, the more I wanted to play with it.

Basic levels, options, 0.5 on each, shadow/highlights adjustment.
and from color edit, converted to greyscale, custom quadtone, minor lighten
in the middle and darken around outside to place focus more on him.
