A remarkable personality worth being photographed, Dragan.
Said this, on my screen, your model's face looks too dark to give its expression the impact it could/should have. I admit that the light conditions were not easy (with the sun being behind the subject) and that this "cowboy's" aura can do with some mysterious shadows. That's why I ask myself whether the use of a remote flash (not mounted on your camera) couldn't add the amount of light needed in order to enlighten your model's face without making it too bright. I never tried this technique myself and, consequently, am not 100 % sure of it, but I expect that more experienced TL-members will show up to confirm, infirm or nuance my words.
Of course, these are just my personal thoughts and suggestions. Do feel free to (dis)agree ;o)
TFS & kind regards,
Very fine man, fine face, superb eyes, excellent hat. Original portrait.
