Portrait of my father-in-law at a local team calf-penning competition yesterday.
Have I ever mentioned how much I admire and love cowboys? This is such a great shot that really stands out to me a lot. I need to share some of my photos that I have done in the past.
His arm is really distracting to me....... Other wise a great shot
I'd like to be able to see his face. Still nice the way it is.
The tones are nice. But I have to agree about the arm. I would like to see more of his face.
Hmmm, I thought the arm partially obscuring the face added to the stoicism.
I guess I was wrong?
i dont know, i actually like the arm, it makes it seem more realistic, and more 'actioney' too.
Not wrong as I can see what you are saying...
However my first thought was that the arm was
covering up his face...Either way I like it!
I agree with the others in that I would also like to see more of his face but overall, I really like the photograph - I think you have great tones and the clarity is really outstanding. Nice shot.
