Another place I didn't know was just down the road.
Was lucky enough to have the point and shoot camera in the car.
Couple of layers, auto color and saturation, gradient filter for sky and contrast

I can't tell if he has on a coat or why his body looks green.

Perfect title! He does look like that's exactly what he's saying! This is a wonderful photo with that huge barn in the background. Good Luck. I really love it!

Good picture as it is, but I'd like it even better if the right side were cropped a bit, say just to cut out the washtub. I really do like the "busy" background of the tree, the stable, the fences. Works well.

I like the big DOF with the detail in the background - not usual for a portrait type shot. Could use some noise reduction in the sky region.

cool shot. perhaps a bit more DoF to get the full head in focus? also there is some funky noise/grain in the sky... not sure what that's from? oversat or over lighting, perhaps? 6

I love this. It is simple, yet perfectly captures that country feeling. Beautiful horse too!

Nice pleasing country image, maybe the horse position could have been a little further to the right...

There's quite a few horse/cow portraits. Most just don't really have any personality. Yours does, the colouring, the sky and the subdued ligting gives this image a mood and feel that others haven't achieved. This winter light is so soft and sort of cool

I'm such a sucker for equine images. I think with the tree, the hay bales and the fence lines, it would be a bit less busy if you cropped just past the horse on the right. It would also make him a bit less centered and the overall image of him would be larger. Just a suggestion. Thanks for the smile!
