How on earth did this shot not score higher.
One of the best images on this site in my opinion.
You was robbed

A nice subtle study that slows down the viewers clock. A very comfortable image to view.

Great subject but I'd like to see more of the foreground.

4 - DMC. There is only one tool here. I do really like the concept of this photo and the effect that the fog has, would like to see it slightly sharper or more contrast not sure but, for me meeting the Challenge is the first priority so I won't comment further, other than, one more tool and it would likely have been an 8, from me, 'in my opinion', etc.

I love it, it's like the paint of salvador dali

Some more emphasis on the dark areas of his body would really make this pop out.

special but boring
07/28/2005 10:27:06 AM
I enjoy fog and I really like your subject here. It even gives the impression that the shovel is a bit heavier in the midst of the fog.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2005 09:11:19 AM
Damn that's a lot of fog :O poor man :P

This really has a lonely lost feeling. Very Good Would have liked to have seen a glimse of a forest or something that he was walking toward "8"

07/27/2005 07:53:40 PM
I tell ya.... this photo is so moving. Makes me wonder what he is going to dig...

isn't all about the tool but a nice pic for sure. Even though it's supossed to be misty, a lillte more contrast (30, 220) will do well.

07/27/2005 02:54:16 PM
might have been better to crop the photo so the gentleman was centered. a great shot though - has so much feeling.

simple and elegant. This is one of the few I've seen so far that is looking for a "good picture" as well as fitting the challenge.

This picture gives me the sense that there is a story being told and I just joined in at the end. Good for you for going without the harsh blacks and whites. The tones are perfect.
