A scene from the works carried out today in Ayia Marina. A central spot had been transformed into a busy working site. I'm not sure what they were working on, the situation they created was confusing with crew, tools and vehicles all around but the sight was exciting too.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

There is nothing in this picture that makes me understand more than you what was going on, but it's still an exciting photo beacuse of all the confusing details and the well protected person (let's assume it's a man) busy welding something. The subject is quite different from most of your photos (no wonder) but shows that there is always something new happening on Leros :-).
Kind regards, wishing you a fine weekend.

Ayant passé ma vie dans le milieu de la transformation du métal et de la soudure je ne peux qu'apprécier cette composition. L'ensemble est d'une superbe netteté malgré la lumière très difficile à l'intérieur des usines.

I must admit, this is not your usual picture posting, Ourania, and admirable how you show the working man welding.
Details are exquisite clear, and fine managed the light condition.
Taken the liberty to add this to my "People at work" theme. Hope you approve.

Man at work... I like that!
The industrial aspect of this shot is very attractive, seeing the cluttered environment he is surrounded by, the ruggedness of the scene, the bolts and screws and pipings.
But what makes this shot even more interesting is the reflection of the welding light bouncing on his helmet, immediately commanding attention and bringing our eyes right at the center of the shot, there where your title takes all its meaning.

As a mechanically mided sort of person, I love this one!
I guess that this guy is making a new section of water supply pipe and he appears to be welding something - probably another flange - on the other side of the pipe though we can't see exactly what he is doing. But what we can see is that his head and helmet are beautifully lit by the bright light of his arc welding torch. (And I know it's electric arc welding he is doing because he has the electrical earth lead clamped to the flange on the right!)
This is a wonderfully "gritty" picture, quite unlike those which you usually post of beautiful scenes around Leros, with lots of interesting detail and with good connection between the welder and his subject, even although we can't actually see the face of the man.
Good concentrated close composition, lovely light, fine vibrant colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

Hi Ourania, very good photograph of this interesting scene of a hardworking, good tribute to all, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy weekend.
All the best from southern Spain.

Ciao Ourania, bella con l'operaio tutto concentrato sul lavoro, anche se completamente coperto dalla maschera trasmette bene tutta la sua attenzione, ottima nitidezza e bei dettagli, bravo, ciao Silvio

A beautiful picture with natural colors and an effective composition. Well seen. A rare scene in TE but always interesting in the details.
Good weekend of France.

bella scena, non proprio comune e per questo ancor più interessante.
Belli i dettagli, di ottima qualità, anche il titolo è ben scelto.
Buon fine settimana

We get very few pictures with workers, this is very well found.
Welding is very dangerous for everyone that not is protect.
Very important are your eyes, but you shall certainly have a lot of attention for this trouble.
Your light and sharpness are superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

My grandfather was a welder, so I was immediately drawn into this one. What a superb capture of the every day man going about his every day business. I was a bit surprised to see your name attached to this shot, a little outside of your mainstream...kudos for taking it on. :)
I love how you've composed this, fully encompassed by the surroundings, every part of the frame is filled with interesting detail and texture. The fact we can't actually see the welding arc leaves a little something to the imagination too. At the same time, we get a clear understanding of such from the bright reflection on the helmet. Hunched over in concentration, the entirety of this capture feels and looks very determined. Wonderful! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Excellent close up photo of working place. You have captured the man and his equipment in superb light with many excellent details. The clarity and sharpness is perfect, the tight crop superb.
Very well done my friend.
Wish you a nice Sunday.

A good environmental portrait about this welder and his proud occupation, pleasing on the eyes where there is enough compositional intrigue to hold attention and well detailed conveying a sense of place. Imho for this type of shot when taken at low light would render more impact with lots of sparks flying around and sizzles. Great work nevertheless.

Hello dear Ourania,

Sur le petit pic j'ai cru à une restauration de canons antiques
Scène intéressante, l'ouvrier est bien concentré sur sa tâche

That is a superb composition and not one that we are accustomed to see in your gallery. Though we cannot see the expression of the welder his posture conveys his concentration at work. The tight framing makes the whole picture very focussed. The sharpness is excellent which has resulted in so many attractive details. Excellent daily life picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

This is an incredibly sharp shot that captures the atmosphere of the workplace well. You have done well here given the variables that could have impacted on exposure. You have captured the light that illuminates the mask perfectly though those welding flashes can often be too bright to even look at. The highlights on the shoulder's and on top of the box of welding rods on the pipe are a little on the high side but that's because of the overhead light but despite this your camera has exposed for the light in front of the mask and captured the rest of the general scene well too. A great feeling of being there emerges too as I look at this longer.
Great shot - have a good day.
macjake (67188) 2014-06-26 2:16
we don't see too many of these sorts of images on TE, so its a welcome sight indeed.
I guess this is more of a guy's photo :)
thats why i like it.
I feel like putting on some gloves and helping the guy out!
a unique subject for TE
