this is a fairly funny self portrait...
because essentially you look like a model who doesn't want to be there...probably the cold or the light or the wind or maybe tneeding to go to the bathroom...or perhaps standing there thinking "I wonder what this will score?"-ya that would be you-insert smiling face here...now me, I didn't even consider submitting or voting on this challenge...had a nice coffee upon getting back from my son's hockey, relaxed to some Van Morrison while playing games, played a bit on the computer, had some friends over, drank a few beers, thought about this challenge hoping Arti-Elvi would win...got up...
sorry didn't mean to be quite so obnoxious...
maybe I should have written...
"nice"

"Oh, what a beautiful morning. Oh, what a beautiful day..." How high is the corn?

I like this self portrait a lot.

I like your title... The colors work good here, but why you hiding behind them..
Perhaps moving in a bit closer would be a some differents for another perspective into the dry corn..

A man of the fields. The time of day is just fine for this capture. Bump.

Some more color in this might have been nice. It feels a bit washed out. Could work great in black and white.

Fun picture. Maybe a slightly tighter crop.

Hey Don! I like this! Good use of seasonal props and natural light - pretty much works for me.

Green jacket contrasts well (life/death) against dried plant materiel. I like that you did not crop the top lower, leaving the thinning of the plants in. I might have darkened it a bit, but still good.

Cool shot, I would have cut off a bit on the top, almost down to the hair. Interesting self portrait, super originality.
