Comment by snaffles:
Greetings from the Critique Club!

I love the feel of this shot, the timelessness of it. It could have been taken 50 years ago or yesterday. The heaviness of the fabric and the helmet are great. Composition is sound, can't really fault it, and the ambient light off the sparks is wonderful. The rebar, mist/smoke, all really add up to a terrific industrial/environmental portrait.

With high contrast, people will either love or hate it. I think the high C works well here in the b/w. Settings look fine for a shot of this nature. Though shots of people do well on this site, that usually means a visible face too! Had you caught your colleague with his welding mask raised, you may have scored far higher.

Overall a vastly underappreciated shot. Just remember that when it comes to Free Studies, tack on another .5 to your score, because that's generally what your shot would have done in a challenge to which it was suited.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Susan

the sky and grass are taking away the attention from the graffiti, a crop would be better, anyway great quality of photo and cool graffiti

Speaking for the engineers who work with me, let's hope not. Nice picture captures all the essential darks and lights.

This had to be challenging lighting. It works though.

Comment by citymars:
This just grabs me; it's appealing like a photo from another era. Dramatic light and shadow, the b&w works well.

Comment by Covert_Oddity:
This has a very old feel about it, reminds me of the shots you would always see of the shipyards in Glasgow when I was a young boy. Nicely handled for what I would imagine was a tricky exposure, and I like the B&W conversion.
