I love this scene for sure :) but the hand was more dirty with a black leather strap :)
This doesn't mean by any chance it is not a wonderful capture, very well done ..

The Gladiator is what came to mind when I saw this photo. Well done.

Ok that's what I want for my shoots. Grr.. get me outta Philly!

I like this though I think for me it would be more effective with more than just the arm... maybe even just half of his body.

I love this image, it has something magical about it. You're so right about fields of wheat.

Such a magical image, makes me wonder about the story of the person there. Such great editing work in the foreground, the sky looks a little bit too 'normal'. Maybe a little more editing is needed on the sky to make it fit in? It's minor in the overall image though. Great work.

I like this because you've used a human element in the photo. Makes this more than just a nature scene. I like the golden tone of the plants.

Would this have worked without the arm? or was there not enough there, just wondering, nice shot

I'm sure many people will mention this, but this reminds me of the scenes from Gladiator when Russell Crowe is doing this. Great shot! The "feel" of the field is very well conveyed. 9.

Wow i love this shot, great idea for the composition to have the arm pushing back the wheat (the simple wedding band works really well in this shot). Love the yellow that you have pp'd

Great jon

This is beautiful! Nice tonal range.The sky near sun looks slight overexposed.
