Gloria, typical image of other parts of the world, except here in the US, where we do not see this type of man power handling. The red hooded coat takes my eyes directly to the action of this image. The two men are working on the quarter of a cow which must be heavy. The surroundings show what looks like an old town with the deteriorated walls after decades of vehicles and other means of transportation pass by. The image is sharp, and the colors have a subtle HDR like effect. I think that the open door of the truck and the two men with the quarter cow are too close to the edge, creating some tension since they have no room to move into. The white lines on the ground work as leading lines for the action.   Posted: 06/10/2020 08:35:01

I really like the processing of this image. It seems more like a painting then a photograph. You really captured both men's facial expressions, especially the man in the truck who seems intent on making sure that the other man does not drop it!   Posted: 06/11/2020 17:25:59

A street scene that demands all the attention due to the color palette. The faces expression makes everything even more interesting.   Posted: 06/17/2020 12:57:58

I like the HDR look. It adds realism to the butcher scene. To me the folds in the subject's clothing suggest muscular movement.   Posted: 06/28/2020 21:26:53
