Very nice composition, and a fine idea for the challenge. One of those rare situations when the subject has more impact because he's looking away from the viewer rather than towards. 7

I really like the concept of this photo...of someone going their own way. The white fence/road moving "up ahead" helps with the idea as does the guitar! But I do wonder if it might work better in black and white? Also, not much you could do about that but to me, the telephone poles (?) break the solitary "magic" of the photo...
Well done

Right now as it is, this image is okay. It could be incredible with a little post processing to give it a mood. The lighting doesn't enhance the image so I think post processing in some drama would really help. Also, it would be more effective if the subjects feet were actually walking instead of standing there as if waiting. I think this image has a lot of potential that just needs to be brought out. Love the inclusion of the fence - I think it adds. 6 - Good luck in the challenge!

He should have a holdall or a bag as well. Leading lines are good. No great drama for me though

Needs a sharpen I think... bit too soft now. Also I think it would look much much better in B&W with some more contrast. 5

I like the perspective, Comp and grasp of theme. Soft focus doesn't work for me here but the idea still scores well . If your model was in the shadow instead of the sun it may have been come out crisper. Easier to set the autofocus or meter the light.

Great leading line. The red guitar is a perfect accoutrement to the otherwise natural tones. Nice lighting through the trees. Well composed.
