Lovely muted portrait. The subtle hues add to the mood. Very nice.

Central position of this man works well here to show off the vast expanse of the land.

Might as well convert it into BW right? The subtle tones don't really add to the picture and are mildly distracting as it seems a little dull. Interesting that he appears to wear a uniform in a field?

An intriguing picture that makes me think and wonder what the story behind him is.

Nice pastel colors. Soft expression with shetland ponies in the background. the sky silhouettes his hat/face.

Interesting shot. (the subject is centered, you might try a different composition)

Great photo! Love that he's almost framed by the horses. The desat gives this a wonderfull feel...

Exceptional portrait, but I feel like something is just off. I don't think the centered composition is the best for this image - the entire left side could have been cropped to the horses and made the composition more dynamic. I also wonder about the desat. The rich colors of his vestment may have been more compelling in full color.

I wish you had left a bit more saturation in the reds/oranges in his clothing, hat, and skin. I also would have preferred a shallower depth of field.

Grog haggle with old man. Trade female for strong horse. Grog say he drive hard bargain and was Grog's favorite female. Grog lie. Man lie too. Horse not strong at all, but good meat and provide more meals for tribe than lazy female that not want to cook.
