    They were all taken with the same film? All during one session?
    Then here's a question to the film geeks among us: why do all-shadow photos become so blue, so cold in colour temp, whereas the sun pics are nicely warm? It's not like the actual light source had changed so that you could assume the white balance was downright WRONG in the shadows. But does it really shift that much?

    As to your photos here: I take it he's a farmer?
    I feel more drawn to the warmer (colour temperaturewise) photos taken in the autumnal woods, they look nice, though my favourite of the series might be the fifth (I think ... would be a lot easier to talk about individual photos if they were numbered). His smile is very frank, open and friendly in that one. And he doesn't have that bright bit of sunlight on his face like in the photo immediately before (4), but also in one or two of the wood-photos (third from last, for example).

    Yes, all the pics were taken within 2 hours of each other.

    No, he's not a farmer... he is actually just a high school senior.

    SOme nice photos.

    I definatly prefer the warmer photos compared to the 'blue' photos with the Ford.

    Number 12 of 13 is my favorite. Good start.

    Nice pictures... But be watchful of the amputations of feet, fingers and hands.
