    I like how the colours appear muted and how the blades of grass frame the subject. Nicely done.

    ??? You mean the lack of replys? A bit of patience. Less than 2 hours isn't bad. Give it day or two.



    Anyway... about your photo... I think Rob addressed most of the things I wondered about, such as a closer crop... maybe move the subject from the center of the frame... a touch of vignetting?

    It's a good idea, but that lighting is just really harsh...unless that's what he was going for...then that's another story. Also, I think that there's just too much blurry grass! It really takes away from what the focus is suppost to be...the guy sitting there. I took the photo into Photoshop:
    1. cropped it
    2. blurred the background a little more to bring focus to the guy
    3. I cloned out some of the distracting grass elements
    4. Shadow/Highlight
    5. contrast
    6. green shift for a more "grungy" look

    Hope that helps!!

    I like it, nice composition and agree that cropping the bottom off help, IMO the softness give it old film felling
