This is a protrait of the shepherd looking after the goats in my previous photo. His life will not be easy and leaving aside the poetism and the independence from the rest of the world, animals never stop requiring looking after. By far the life of a shepherd is a lonely one, just the goats and a dog or two.

A beautiful portrait.....! Yes, we can see that his life is not so easy, but he is full of charm and he is happy. And he loves his work. A wonderful composition with great sharpness and depth.

Perfect work !
Lovely light and colour throughout, and sharpness just right.
Well proportioned, with an eye on the centreline, as I understand the classic portraitists would have it.
You can feel for this man's hard life, and in the same moment wonder if he isn't in the better position, he looks happier than many of my neighbours !
Nice work, well shared,

Hi Aleks,there is a serenity in the eyes of this sheperd,maybe he don't know the stress and the smog living in the mountains and maybe he's more happy than the people living in cities.Excellent work,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

You have certainly come a long way as far as portraits go. This is another excellent photo with supereb sharpness and light. I am sure you made the day for this shepherd. Imagine, staying out all day with noone but the dog and sheep to talk to, and then you come along with your camera. He really looks pleased.
