    I like it, maybe a little more room at the bottom, the feet are kind of cut off, and the shirt is a little distracting. I like the look...what techniques did you use processing?

    I like the textures of the fence in the pic. I agree with hacksaw that a little less of a vertical crop would help this. Also, the bright, blown-out spot on the fence 1) takes attention from the subject (the person), and 2) looses the beautiful detail in the wood.

    It may just be that I'm younger, but that shirt doesn't distract me.

    Well gotta agree on blown area as distracting.. Lighting really strange here ? have some nearly blown spots on face..
    buttt as an Outdoor portrait, I think this is pretty good,,, May have used a little fill flash on face.. Like the idea of Horizontal here, but could use more space around subject.. Everything good, but strange lighting was your only enemy... Not bad at all..
