It looks like he's standing in a giant dead animal! Great shot! Shoulda done better - some folks have a thing about guns.

I think the composition would be better if he wasn't so centered.

I like this shot but the horizon and person are a bit too central for my liking, personally I would have cropped a bit from the bottom and behind the man to use the rule of thirds to more advantage. Good luck

I think that this would be much stronger if you cropped it about a half inch below his feet.

I like the idea of this. I'd have the guy a little off center and up the tone by adjusting curves.
