Awesome entries everybody!

Sorry for the delay - I'm on a tight schedule today so quickly:

1st - Jean-Guy - I love this shot and that person working says to me "sustained physical and mental effort to overcome obstacles" all day (well at least I would have to!) Great example IMHO.

2nd - Jason C - Just a wonderful example and I love the B&W treatment.

3rd - John_B - If that was a miller light I swear that was me last weekend :-)

Allen -- Tell me when you are going down next time and I'm soooo going to crash your party :-)

Gail -- Great example of some physical exertion!

Chris - a lovely shot and great story - I like the contrast between subject and background (probably the wrong choice of words there but... I think you know what I mean)

Tony -- a beautiful and sharp shot of work in the city.

athrasher - a well done night shot and I know there is plenty of work going on in there but I'm not feeling it...


motoroller - I really like this shot and think it's a great example of the amount of work needed to keep the landscape up ... not to sure any real work get's done inside that building though :-)

Congrats Jean-Guy and thanks everybody for your entries.
