A good portrait that suits a mono treatment. Nice one.

You have a splendid subject. The farmer's facial expression is as realistic as can be. This is a portrait, obviously, for which there are no technical details, except the RAW mention. This leads me to think you could have done better. The exposition on the subject's left shoulder is OK, but why do we not see the face as clearly? Look at the two hands, here again we have a difference, so the farmer's left hand is too close to the camera. It is OK to show the pens, but why do we see someone in the background? Your subject is holding what? You may know, I can only guess. Never mind this last detail, if only you could sharpen that wonderfully interesting face and clean up the background, then we could start talking about a very good portrait. Paul Smile
