    Hi John, not sure why some of the older members have retained from commenting, but...

    This for me is another belter of an image, just love it and certainly that is one massive rack. Personally I think you could loose a little off both the top & bottom, but the DoF looks spot on. The face is looking a bit dark and some lifting of the Contrast will help to a degree both the subject and in the BKG. In addition a tad more sharpening. You have some nice layering, just add a little more burning in the FG. Might prune the flowers on the back ridge. Adding a tad more Magenta in the WB I think evens the balance up, then you can Colour manage accordingly.

    Well done.

    TFS
    Steve

    Hello John,

    Cannot agree more with Steve, such a lovely image with a great 3D feel, subject fills the frame beautifully and I love the direct stare and eye contact.

    OP appears just a bit contrasty, Steve's RP opens things up a bit, blacks look better and there's more detail.

    Nice choice of DoF, good detail, those trees in the BG are simply gorgeous - superb capture, great timing, great work in the field!

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Hi John -- Apologies , but I might have overlooked this , otherwise there is no point in not commenting on this image.

    I really loved this frame, especially the FG flowers, adds immensely to the scene. Steve's RP has made the blacks much improved, which I felt appeared a bit too strong in your OP.

    Handsome looking subject and very well framed .

    TFS !
