Good composition and color. The highlight on his shirt is a little too blown for my taste though.

Thank you for your feedback Matthew, I really appreciate it. :)
The way I see things, the brighter highlights are attracting the viewer's attention in a much more prolific manner. But I shall definitely redo the image from the ground up wherein the details in the highlights are legible.

Wow! But yeah, the white shirt is a tad too bright.

I think you are right. After it was brought to my notice by Matthew Lacy in his comment above, I asked this question to all my folks and all of them were like yes it is indeed burnt out and having the details in it would be nice. I guess I just didn't see it myself earlier.
I shall indeed work on it all over again.
Thank you for your inputs, really appreciate it. :)

This is a wonderful photo - thank you for sharing it with us! I love the top-down perspective and the way that the high contrast light accentuates the mounds of peppers. I have never seen a pepper harvest and had never thought about what it would look like.

While I agree that the highlight on the farmer’s white shirt is blown-out, it’s not a big deal to me and does not ruin the photo.
