The gesture and technique define him...more space would place him. best...jf

27 Jul 2011 2:35pm

@ordinaryimages: Yes, space, space, space....grabbing little vignettes I see between and around the crowds of people at the farmers market frustrates me in this area. I'm finding arriving late at the market helps...people have cleared out a bit. Better yet, I need to start finding people to pose for me. :-)

Very nice unposed shot. You got him in the middle of something and that adds a lot of interest.

I'm coming in a day late here, Dulcie, so I don't know if you'll get this...but I like this image VERY MUCH. I think it's one of your very best. The image is crisp and clean and clear throughout. The background is very interesting but subdued enough that it enhances the main image without distracting, and the color contrast of background and foreground is wonderful. Also the image is full of ACTION, it's dynamic; not only is the man DOING something exciting with his hands and his bag, but his whole shape moves powerfully across the page from right to left. His shirt, his hat, his face, his matted hair, and his blue-ish gloves and bag (that pick up the background) are all simply wonderful. And there's meaning in this picture too: it's a farmer at a farmer's market working for his living with intensity and commitment, and all the values of that come through your image. But best of all, and this is what takes this image into the stratosphere, is the LIGHT and SHADOW play throughout, and especially the dappling on his face. I have added this image to my file of favorites. It's a masterpiece if there ever was one.
