Hi, I am o.k. with the perspective as well as the vertical orientation and the background, but i think the speed, although it has recorded an action, most likely a hit with a hammer, has blurred the tool. A faster speed or a lower iso combined with flash from the left pointing not directly on him would have got the tool BANG on and the left (to us) side of his face brighter as well.. I like you have shot it in colour so we see the colour of his skin. In a background so void of any hints regarding the place you have taken this photo the skin colour may help someone guessing where you have taken this picture. I can exclude North Pole and Japan.

For the ones who really get into detail, please notice the shirt which is custom made with the breast pocket on the right, convenient for a left hand user. Of course he looks like a left hand user. Unless he is a relative to Nadal, who writes with the right hand and plays tennis with the left hand. Dexterity to an artisan is a gift Smile

I like the blur, combined with the concentrated focus of his eyes, to me it effectively conveys focused action.

Nice work Rooby. Really like the angle, and the blur. I understand Pablos point re the blur, and it would be better, but I think this was a passing shot, and you would need some time to try different settigs. Worth doing if you have a chance, and the worker has the patience!

I noticed some bright objects that appear to be coming out of the side of his head, Ive removed them, though I dont know what they are. I would like to see a little more room above his head, and I would crop closer to a 7 X 5 format toplace the hammer and his head in a better position.

I thought that it would convert well to a duo tone, so thats the second mod. Ive lightened his face just a little.

Well done,خوب انجام

You need that blur, it's part of the composition and you look straight past it to his face. The shadows are a touch too heavy on the face and a sweep with the dodge tool just on facial shadows would be a goodidea. I woul also crop the right to move him towards the right side of the frame.

I think it's fantastic! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
