Nice daily life frame, Benny, with these two balancing the shot in opposite corners. Great colors and light - and excellent shadows too. Regards, Daniel

Cette photo est belle par ses couleurs et aussi parce que c'est un bel hommage à ces hommes qui travaillent dans des conditions très périlleuses.
J'aime le coté graphique avec les lignes horizontales et verticales des échafaudages en bambou, complété par l'arrondi de l'arche.
J'aime surtout la composition avec les deux ouvriers, que l'on dirait trois du fait de l'ombre de l'un d'entre eux.
C'est du très beau travail.

excellent light and colours, the best thing i like in this shot is the shadow of the man in bottom right

very nice pitcure. Safety rules are quite low in that country, aren't ? I like especially the shadow..

I see a relationship between colour and geometry. Though not much about the fact or any particular architecture, here you featured a daily life interest and presented very well here in TE.

The painter's shadow in the bottom has a subtle impact. Deep yellow hit with the midday sunlight is also impressive.
Have a nice day, Hisashi

A beautiful graphic composition, with bright colors, and a funny shadow. Regards,

You have done a marvellous piece of artwork here, well using a camera! The actions are well captured and you have so carefully composed this shot with well aligned bamboo grid without even leaving out the shadows of the painters. The shadows also provides a good sense of depth.

that perfect shadow on this yellowish wall is a real feast for my eyes...i just can't stop looking at it! this is such a nice catch, well spotted, well framed. I think I would go for a bolder crop - leave only a small part above the feet of the upper figure. I know it sounds daring, but the shadow would be the main protagonist this way (as it deserves) and the composition stronger and even more interesting.
All this, of course, just my humble opinion...
Truly enjoyed this one!

I like the shadows here benny and a good POV - you didnt have a choice:)
abulafia (4900) 2008-06-07 5:57
I like this one very much, and i agree, this definitely looks like action painting, amazing what they can accomplish from scaffolds like this!

tu as bien fait d'intervenir dans le forum sinon je ne serai peut-être jamais tombé sur celle-ci...
Elle mélange tel un peintre, le graphisme, les ombres et surtout le travail très pénible de ces ouvriers.
Et puis les teintes ocres sont vraiment excellentes.
PS: je n'écris pas en flamand, désolé ! :)

Nery nice real life picture. I like the composition, the way of capturing and the unity of colours. The shadow is a very essential element for the quality of the shot. Well done.
AmiBe (6042) 2008-06-21 4:04
it looks like a dangerous work !
Superb yellow tones and the shadow is excellent !

Hi Benny !
What a scene ! Incredible composition - men closed into the kind of a clock-like circle, chequered with a bamboo construction - very impressive. Like shadows repetition on the wall... So light and sunny view in opposition to hard and dangerous work.

a very exciting and captivating shot for me. Lovely colours, bright and tense. Shadow management and light play is excellent. Most of all rules of the thirds is obviously and cleverly manifested.
pascalrouget (393) 2008-09-08 8:53
This is a very nice shot. I like the topic first. Great hommage to these people working hard in difficult position and often close to danger. I like the colors then: all the picture in the same tone. I like the shadow of the man, perfectly shoted. And the POV with all bamboo and shadows doing like a squaring.
Thanky for sharing a beautiful picture like that (from a beautiful country too)!
