Salut Andre ,
Encore un magnifique portrait . Avec ici aussi une remarquable progressivité dans le flou des pains . L'arrière plan reste net , mais étant sombre , il offre un bon contraste au mitron en blanc .

Epaté par la qualité de cette image au 1/13s !
Bien vue l'utilisation de la longue perspective de pains en FG
Bravo et bonne soirée

Wow...so many breads...we almost can smell the aroma just out of oven.
The guy seems like very proud of his work.
It's a very nice picture. Thanks for showing us.

hi andre. it's dinner time for istanbul, i'm drooling and your photo doesn't help. very well done in low light atmosphere. if i had a 1Ds, i guess i'd push up to some thousands of ISOs, but with stunning 1/13 sharpness, you seem you did not need to do that. i suppose you did not set your tripod in a bakery oven either, or did you??? colors are probably the closest to the reality.

I like it. This photo reminds me one of my last photos from Lankese bakery. Excellent low point of view, Good vertical format, good idea to focus on the baker, well done!

An amusing title for a good photo. A frendly looking man posing proudly with the products of his hard work. I read your comment on how many pictures you take at a time like this. I have worked some times with extremely talented press-photographers and have marvelled at the number of pictures they take, maybe a hundred just to get one brilliant shot, but it must be very difficult to spend so much time with totally unaccustomed models without making them bored or nervous. Isn't it?

This is a delightful portrait of a baker in his working environment. We see his accomplice (or apprentice!) in the background working away with trays of baked or unbaked bread and here, beautifully lit against that darker background, is the chief baker himself, standing proudly over his loaves.
Yes, I agree - I can almost smell that delicious fragrance of freshly baked bread. Your composition is excellent, the baker perfectly placed in the frame and the line of the edge of the bread tray leading our eyes directly to him. Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. And, most importantly, an excellent interaction between photographer and subject too!

Très belle gestion de la profondeur de champ et de l'exposition pour mettre en vedette ce boulanger souriant de Zanzibar.

L'Afrique du sud comme elle n'est pas souvent montrée, ça change des magazines internationaux.
Joli cadrage qui montre à la fois le cadre de travail et le travailleur. Mention spéciale à l'exposition qui laisse encore du détail dans les ombres et non permet notamment de voir le second boulanger en arrière plan.

Great diagonal in the composition and just the right amount of light on the smiling baker's face. Great portrait. Taking pride in a good job well done. And that goes for both the baker and the photographer. :)

quel plagiat pour le titre!
Super photo, bien composée et avec l'assentiment du boulanger, très bonn exposition pour avoir du détail dans les ombres. Je pense que tu as dû lui envoyer cette image, c'est ce que je fais la plupart du temps quand les personnes acceptent d'être prise en photo.

Hello Andre - I especially like the way the baker's eyes parallel the line of bread here, it's a clever way to add dynamism to a portrait. A carefully considered composition and as always very good management. I am impressed by the rapport you struck up with your subjects in Zanzibar.... for the most part I found the people to be quite anti-camera. Maybe things have changed over the past 12 years. Warm regards Rosemary
