wonderful b&w photo here, showing the sad expression of the potter surrounded with his work. i like everything here, the light, composition, richness of details, and especially the eye contact, leading a path through his tired soul.

This one is simply stunning! You have selected a perfect moment to capture the man at his work at such a great pose and interesting expression. The b&w version fits here very well. Superb composition! Bravo!
Have a nice day!

Hai ragione, lo sguardo di questo poverino é proprio triste. Spero che la sua vita é meglio che la sembra. Hai scelto bene il bianconero, accentuando la meravigliosa struttura dei ceramic, le line sul suo viso e tutti gli altri dettagli. Mi piace anche il tuo POV basso. É molto importante qui che tu ed l'uomo siete occhio ad occhio Una foto molto candida ed una che mi fa pensare.
Grazie per l'ottima condivisione, un abbraccio

I can only repeat what I wrote few minutes ago commenting your previous shot.Magnificnet B&W treatment,but also very suitable subject for this kind of photography.I think monochrome captures and emphasizes much better in this case all details and textures(especially of te man´s face),but makes also generally the scene more expressive and meaningful to us.The face is like a reflection of the soul and this is perfectly seen on his tired and worried face.

Ciao caro Valter,
il senso di profondita', l' illuminazione omogenea e la resa monocromatica sono magnifiche, la tua composizione e l' espressione di questo signore in una brevissima pausa dal suo lavoro fanno di questa foto un' opera d' arte. Una descrizione ed un commento molto semplice, eloquente e forte sulla vita quotidiana che sembrava molto piu' lontana da quelle nei nostri paesi alcuni anni fa. Ogni dettaglio, tessitura e tonalita' e' significativa ed il signore sembra intrappolato in questo ambiente per noi cosi interessante. Ottimo lavoro, complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,

Your perfect focus and DOF makes this man's face and body leap from the screen, Valter; he's set nicely apart from his BG even though he's quite close to it. And yes, his despair and hard work are both perfectly evident in this piece. Your choice of black and white is perfect here, as it only underlines the deep creases in his face and adds drama and contrast to this scene. Thanks!

Your choice of monochrome does justice to this piece of photojournalism. The eye contact and expression makes it clear that he knew you were taking his portrait; he doesn't look too pleased about it though. But so much better than if he were smiling self-consciously: this feels much more authentic.

This is a fine daily life shot about the potter and his occupation with the expression on his face pulls us into the scene and hold the attention there. I think what so striking is on the face which is more than one sense of the word with lots of feeling. The crop is balance and mono conversion is wise move. Well doe. TFS

Hello dear Valter,
I think you came back from India with many memories one more time..and one more time you're eager to make a new trip..it's a cycle with no end..
Excellent b&w portrait of this hard worker, he is doing very precise work and I'm sure with this skills he can earn a better salary abroad
Wonderful daily life report telling a story

Ciao caro Valter,
A poor, poor man indeed! Yhis poor fellow looks as though he has worked hard all his life - and he is probably actually a lot younger than he appears in this beautiful photograph.
You have captured this hard worker perfectly, surrounded by all the pottery which he has been making and finishing. His expression is almost painful. Lovely light and contrasts, good composition, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.
A perfect picture of life, work and poverty in India.

Unfortunately, that's a so common situation around the world. It's a very good and also very sad portrait. B&w is perfect here!

A picture that tells a story. Light management
and composition are great. The B&W makes the
picture timeless and emphasize extra situation.
