Love the texture of all the scaffolding and shadows in the windows. Interesting angle. Well done!

I just discovered this. What a fantastic shot! The light, shadows, and forms are in perfect harmony. Super.

Thanks for all the great comments! A quick note for those that had a problem with the term 'Painting', it was meant to relay a metaphorical sense of paining a landscape which in this case was urban.

Excellent, though it looks like they're tiling rather than painting :P
The workmen are very well placed, spread out and giving the shot balance. Did you have to wait or just a lucky moment? Sepia works well. A somewhat devalued 10 because I've given so many!

Nice capture. Good concept. Sepia works well with this. A bit oversharpened, but a very nice image.

Good in B/W I like the detail, good capture.

Very good picture I should have put the focus more on the man sitting resting, if you take only the 2/3 top it would have been stronger....greetings doginroom

I love the duetones in this and the silhouette of the guy sitting there, This is beautiful Great job - 10

this has a very classic feel to it, like a margaret Bourke White image. I like it a lot. The worker at the top right sitting on the platform in silouette makes this shot for me.

This is showing something more than just a building. Action !. I like this photo.
B/W fits well too.
Could it be slightly rotated CW to be vertical?

Good one 10pt

Wow, simply stunning! The lack of a singular focal point captivates the viewer and makes him roam throughout the photograph, ahh I just can't adequatly describue it, I love the diaginal lines, the negative space, and the tones. Simply Superb!

Nice job of toning without overdoing it! Having the workers on the scaffolding is a great plus and item of interest here.

Reminds of that print with the workmen on the crane...
Great choice to go B/W.

Your choice of color has added so much to this image, I think. There is drama and interest and a true sense of "urban" here. I keep coming back to look at it again. It appeals to me on many levels without me understanding exactly why. It reminds me a bit of West Side Story or a set of a Broadway play. In any case, this is stunning. Great job.

the different patterns really make this sharp!

nice image, well-composed (you probably placed the painters just where they are, right?lol) interesting shadows and well-titled 7

So many lines to follow, it's a very rich image!

Nice contrast in pattern between the scaffolding and the building. The workers form a pattern of their own, which livens up the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 10:21:34 PM
I like the metallic appearance of this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 05:48:21 PM
This is a very nice shot. Love the focus and DOF. The guy chillin' on the right hand scaffolding toward the top makes the shot. This time I have to agree with the B/W treatment. This is obviously a construction (reconstruction) site and I think color would detract in this instance!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 04:45:59 PM
Like, WOW. I absolutley LOVE this!! Good luck. 10+

Just a fantastic shot. I think this is a winner....sure is for me. Really artistic, great tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 03:08:13 PM
Nice. But IMO could do with the right hand side being cropped tightly to the scaffold, I find my eye "slipping off the edge" of the subject.

i love this picture !!! it seemed to happen in a theater :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 10:27:50 AM
Now this certainly is different. Its a very good composition, I especially like the way that one guy is resting up the top there. Sepia toning - spot on!

sepia doesn't seem appropriate for a picture of painting. What color are they painting it? What color was it?
