A change from the wildlife.
This gentleman is well into his eighties, he used to be our local magistrate and is very well respected in our village.
Thanks for looking.
Regards. - gary
Great composition. The elderly gentleman and his dog transform a relatively ordinary scene into something with real atmosphere. The colours and tones are also a 'Gentle' palate.
Like this Gary, super composition,
I see we have both posted photos of elderly gentlemen today, Gary.
Actually I'm slowly heading that way myself (well, I'm aiming for the elderly part of the equation
The gentle perspective (I'm assuming that's the right term - I mean, the perspective doesn't narrow rapidly towards the background) implies a leisurely pace, contentment, companionship; the colour is very good and the placement just about perfect. A very enjoyable image.
A well-taken and very pleasant walk along that receding path, the man and his dog in perfect position in the frame makes a fine composition.
That has so much atmosphere in the sky Gary
with the bonus of the gentleman ambling along with the dog
Lovely tones and composition, Gary. A gentleman in the Autumn of his years.
Your composition works perfectly. The figures of elderly gent and his dog walking along that lane together are just right set in the Autumn scene.

Keith has summed up this image so eloquently Gary, a fine composition sir
nice one ...
I think they've grown old together, and I also suspect that even a slight incline is hard going for both of them. A very human image.
Wonderful comp and detail Gary, great image.
I thought for a moment until I saw the dog that you'd taken a sly one of me.....
Do you know, this looks even better in BW. I think it's the sort of shot that naturally suits BW. Have you tried it?
Excellent composition, and the man/dog perfectly positioned. Very nice - but better in BW?
great comp and well captured, "something with real atmosphere" is right.
I will give it a try Rob.
I thought self portrait on timer at first Gary but he is too young isn't he. (only kidding). Its a really nice shot, excellent composition and colour.
This image made me feel real sadness for the man's poor mobility.
He looks as if it's slow going and as you say he was a man of stature in his lifetime.
(I thought there was a word 'stupped' but not finding it in dictionary).
So you've evoked lots of different feelings with this image Gary.
A great composition, it shows achievement , patience and presence on his part.
And an excellent eye on yours!
Good for him in his eighties Gary,
and still getting out and about !!
A fine shot.
Wonderful colour and tones in this well captured image
first class image
This is so lovely Gary and a very poignant image. We'll all be here some day (god willing - although I don't have a dog!! ) - and wouldn't it be lovely if there was someone there to capture our daily walk?! Love it!
A beautifully composed shot, Gary, and the although the walker is getting on in years, he is rill able to enjoy a stroll with his dog in delightful surroundings.
An excellent landscape/candid image.
Prefer this one to the mono, Gary.
I'm looking at this image and my first thought was he wouldnt be out if he didnt own a dog,,
Nice shot,,like the lines in this shot Gary,think I would go with this instaed of the mono Gary,
