Hello, after being without a camera for 5 years I finally got my hands on a dSLR, I'm a bit rusty and couldn't find the exposure control when I was outside but by incredible luck that over-exposure made for a really unique look!
I would really like to send it in for a contest but before I do I would love for some serious critique as I still have time to do some tweaking to it.

Quality depends entirely on how much detail can be recovered from the over-exposed areas. Unique look...I don't see it. ;)

I like the current version quite a bit. It has an adventure/fantasy sort of feel to it.

This is definitely better than the original ...exposure in the opening is much better...very Indiana Jones look.

Consider cropping out the very over exposed portion at the top for more of a 4:3 ratio framing.

Hmmmmm interesting, usually I'm very anti-4:3 as I don't find it "cinematic" enough, but when it comes to portrait shots I'm actually very uncertain what I like (especially since more streched out AR's makes the image very small on widescreen monitors).

In this case however I went with this particular frame so that the horizon is on the rule of third.
