Speechless as always! Maybe next time the rules will be in our favour to have you and Jorge 21.gif De Sousa on the same team.

Congrats Manny! A very well deserved ribbon. Love the diagonals and leading lines from the pot to the face. This image reminds me of some of your early images in Treklens. Great shot as ever.

I am surprised to see the 2's here.

I think the angle made this shot outstanding! (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2010 01:55:35 PM
That's a pretty intense look! Nicely composed, like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2010 10:19:45 AM
Most excellent. The lighting and the angle are most effective to show us not only his craft but also his intense face and bony frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2010 03:13:45 AM

I especially like the way the colors of both potter and pottery merge together. Lighting and angle work great too. (not voting)

Strong composition, and capture his experssion really well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2010 08:32:43 AM
Between the angle of the camera and the expression on his face, there is a lot of tension in this image. That tension makes this photo memorable, but I half wish the mood was much calmer, especially since using a potter's wheel is most often associated with relaxed feelings. A wonderful shot, nonetheless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2010 10:02:11 PM
Wonderful capture; interesting perspective and angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2010 06:27:06 AM
Blue right there no doubt in my mind. I just hope you're not with the viewfinders haha. This is the kind of image i'd feel so damn proud of taking. I'd put this up on my wall! Make prints please :D. Librodo? Easy 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2010 10:00:56 PM
