I feel cold and miserable just looking at this. You certainly captured the feeling.

+1 on capturing the mood -- it certainly works! My eye goes immediately to the green jacket, and my brain wonders if that is the intended subject, creating a bit of a distraction. Perhaps I'm wrong and child (?) in the green jacket really ~is~ the subject?

Reminds me of camping in similar weather. Hmmm @ mono?

Thanks everyone. About ten riders took part in this cattle drive, some in the lead, some in the middle and these in the rear. The temperature was 2C (35F).

The drive moved the cattle from their summer range to a lower level winter range. Below is a photo of the boy in the green jacket with his mother just before the drive began.

Love the atmospheres you share, Rick, and this is a great example.

First photo shows no depth, suggesting a telephoto lens was used. Second is a dandy too

To me the green jacket ruins the image, unless there is a personal connection to him.
Makes me wonder about monochrome.

And yes, feeling a bit cold, raw and miserable as well, just looking.

The boy was wearing a green, waterproof jacket. Since this was not a studio shot, I had no control over his attire nor that of any other rider.

of course not
and you nailed the mood
I love BW/monochrome and I am most used to seeing your BW images.....while I don't always comment, I enjoy them quite a bit
Trying to figure out when BW is preferable to color and vice versa.
