I reworked Playing Ojibway according to some suggestions.

I restored a little color and shadow to his face. I reduced the saturation of the trees to attempt to cut down the problems suggested with which I agreed regarding framing and strength of elements. As for the sky, I couldn't fix. It was really overcast.

Thanks to all that offered. I think I like this version much better. :)

Looking at this photo, I can't help but think "this is *almost* really great/interesting." For some reason, it has trouble keeping my eye.
I alot of your photos are really sharp and striking, this one is blurry on the edges and seems a little washed out.
I see that you were going for the gloomy/overcast, and you got that, but it doesn't make me want to look at it is much/isn't as poignant.
The question I'm left with -- can you get a picture of overcast and have it be sharp and pointed? Overcast is sort of drudgy by definition, so maybe it's not possible.

I also know that you play with things like "saturation" and "color restoration" and all I know about, really, is cropping. So I don't know what else to say about this... but I like this version better than the last.
