    I took this shot in Teguchagalpa, Honduras. Up until then I hadn't done much with portraits. The picture was take with a Nikon D2Xs with a Nikkor 105mm Macro lens with VR. The ISO was 250 @ 1/60th, f11. I did use a small flash fill.

    I would be interested in any and all feedback.

    great subject, i want his skin brighter. and i want to see the whites of his eyes a reflector might help, or tilting his hat up slightly.

    also, i would have not included the sky, even the d2x can't handle that kind of dynamic range.

    i would recrop this without the dead space on the left and top

    I like it ....it's a face filled with the outdoor life.

    A little too dark just under the hat, but......

    Yes, the exposure is too low, but for me the most distracting element is the color cast, it doesn't look like youe White Balance was exactly right. THere's a bit of a bluish tinge to it. If you shot in RAW, you can fix that quite easily.

    Very nice subject and composition.

    A nice shot and quite good composition. My only comment would be that you did the right thing using a touch of fill-in flash, but I would almost guarantee it either didn't synch or didn't go off.
