This was our wagon driver on the ranch yesterday. I was on the wagon (no pun intended) when I shot this. Good ole Pentax Shake Reduction to the rescue!

Now that's a face with character! Look at those lines leaving his eyes. Cool texture in his face, denim and hat too. Did you add that texture?

Really nice shot.

Thanks. I did some dodging/burning to "enhance" the wrinkles in his jacket and his face on top of PS plug-ins that I used on two layers- one to get the colour out of the sky and the other kinda oversharpened his face and clothing. I'll have to work on it a bit more to get rid of that halo you can see in places (think that's what it's called, from oversharpening)

Nice image! I think this has huge potential for a mono conversion.
