|This photo is an instant classic. The foreground/background composition is exceptional in its story telling and scene settings. Great colors, sharpness, everything!
It's hard to suggest anything to do with this, as I believe it's near perfection. However, something to try and compare with this one to see if it helps or hurts: burn in the elbow a touch, it's very bright, and dodge his face a bit, to add some light. Do the elbow last--because that might be a mistake. One thing good about it "bright" is that it does set the scene for this fellow working in the "hot sun" all day.
Great work--I think I have a new favorite!
Ooh, better yet: I just looked at the date, and it was shot on my birthday. So thanks for this nice birthday present ;)
