Thanks everyone who submit photo in this week's challenge. In my opinion, every entries here are top notch photographs with sound technical qualities and many stories to be told. It's difficult to pick and rank them for me. Here are some of my comments on your photos.
Kapeji - Default Self Portrait, turning a 6 inch ball on an Oak table leg.
I could see you have nailed the exposure with the help of fill flash. Well framed and great details. New dining table for the family?
rowdyred94 - Mud Slingers
Great angled using the leading line of the wall. Awesome depth of field - Was this off the camera or post processed? I can feel the speed these young men have to deal with.
EskoLius - Finished
Indeed another job well done by the roadside assistants. Lovely light and the focusing is spot on.
Sparky98 - A Little Night Work
I love how the contruction was lited with different lights - somehow add interesting mood & feel to the picture. Good captured.
ezza - The world is my Canvas
Another great captured of colours. Bule and yellow are lovely contrast I think. Beautiful painting and the painter is placed nicely in rule of third. Top shot.
andrewaaa5 - ..a hard days Mario..
I like the sephia look you gave to this image. I also enjoy the humor of your image. Cheers!
alans220 - Todays Catch
You have calmed the sky very well. An awesome looking boat. I would love to know what sort of catch the fisherman caught.
abat - This train is bound for glory ....
Great composed. The stop sign also archored the photo well. I need to consult my son if this is Henry, Duck or Percy. Nice one.
marie - police go underwater/missing person
Razer sharp and well composed image. I can tell who's the boss, who's apprentice and who's the divers. Good portfolio shot for CSI Ireland?
BottomBracket - The Asian Chef
I love how you framed this image inviting me to see what is going on from the restaurant's window. What's cooking? It's time for dinner!?! Excellent!
sara - Pick Up Sticks
I hope you didn't get too close to the big claw sara! Nice captured of the moment. Bless the man who is working in this cold condition!
And the winners are:
1st - BottomBracket
As I like the artistic quality of his image, showing just enough details of the workers and their environments.
2nd - ezza
For the visual illustration of colours through his image and nice composition.
3rd - rowdyred94
For his perfect timing, well composed and great use of DOF image.
Top contenders in no particular order: Kapeji, Sparky98, andrewaaa5 & marie
Challenge #111 - The worker on the job
Tell me a story through your image of an occupation that will illustrate the theme "The worker on the job". Aren't we glad that our P&S cameras are the perfect tool for this?!? (Borrowed this challenge idea from another excellent forum I anticipate in.)
