Ill Clean your Car

By devlin
The guy in the Pic above cant speak, he communicated using sign language, so as not to depend on anyone, he cleans cars to earn a living, here he was waiting for the rain to stop before he started his work. The photo was processed using HDR in photomatix and then finished off in PS...comments and advice welcome Smile

Did you have a spot of rain on the lens ? There is a distracting area on the red door that keeps drawing my eye.

Good catch Steve, yes now that you mention it it does distract, though iam not too sure if thats because the paints faded off or due to rain on the lens Smile...maybe ill try repairing it using the clone tool

That light patch is a distraction, which is a pity - this is a type of shot that I love. A candid within a strong linear frame. There's an alternative composition in the left-hand side, off to try a Mod.

An excellent composition, & what a contrast to your last one. Those reds are so bright & vibrant.

Your observations of your fellow countrymen are always done with great sensitivity, but you never lose your sense of fun by becoming too serious. I always look forward to your uploads.

In my view, you are one of the best street photographers on the site, along with my other favourite, Moira (Mrswoolybill).

ps - glad you are well again.
