This photo is great! It's a wonderful hommage to Grant Wood. :)

I wanted some candid shots of this man who was operating an antique haying machine at the antique tractors and farm equipment show I went to in late July. I did get some but it was not easy -- he really wanted something more formal. The cool thing about this one is that the pose was his idea, not mine. Since he doesn't have email, I mailed him prints of several of my favorite shots.
Boosted the saturation and applied Mr. Contrast and buZZ filters here.
