Here are three V's of same image, cropped a lot, cropped a little and full as shot.
V4 show image taken at same time but upped ISO and shutter speed. Noise starting to show at big magnification.
This was taken before i stopped their work and the guy on the right starting asking about my daughters and grinning as in my earlier pic I posted. Thanks for comments and advice on that.
My aim was to capture a general travel photo and I was attracted by the colours and subject. Comments on crops, general interest of images and any thing else you spot would be welcome. It was early evening and the shots were handheld.
The photo was taken on the waterside on a Greek Island. The fishermen were very friendly Egyptians.
They were very happy to be photographed and I was able to take several.
No money changed hands but I did have the promise of a couple of camels! (their idea not mine)
Thanks for looking,
Ian

V1 is best, v2 and v3 include too much and I think we have seen v4 before. A fine shot but a bit of flare on the left of his head. V1 is a good tightly framed record.

Very obliging subjects and a fine opportunity here.
The cropped V1 is just perfect, in my eyes, Ian. The frame is filled with the netting and menders, and is so effective that way.
I like the bare feet, the way the man on the right is holding the net between his toes, and their concentration on their work.
There is some movement evident in the top of the net that is being mended, but that's acceptable.
I feel that the overall effect could be improved by cloning out the part sandal bottom left and filling in the slight bit of background top left, so I've done a modification with those things done.
Pamela.

Thanks for the mod and feed back. Small issues, but they do help to improve.
The guys were very agile with their feet and toes, able to move the net on with toes to work on the next part of it. I guess thats why they worked bare footed.
regards
Ian

Sandal apart this is a wonderful composition of the men at work.
The nets are a fantastic colour.The concentration so well captured.
I took this type of image in Santorini but didn't handle the bright light so well.
