Good one Leonid...
Just found the Christmas lights a bit distracting.   Posted: 08/02/2022 12:21:57

So glad his bucket and shirt are yellow as they work well with the background. I agree with Jody about removing the Christmas lights. I have another thought as well. Since you have title dit "working man" and since he is the subject, I would have you consider cropping it about midway, thus removing the upstairs windows. This would draw much more attention to the worker. Another thought: since you are good at compositing, you could try to select him and move him farther to the right so that he is walking into the scene rather than leaving it. These are just suggestions for you to consider. Overall a good image.   Posted: 08/03/2022 16:59:46

Wonderful colors There seems to be a curve on the sidewalk and line just above his head Perhaps straightening with perspective or free transform
I agree with Dorinda and Jody especially about cropping out the top window and lights
As I always think less is more One of my camera club friends has a saying that there is always a better picture inside the one you took   Posted: 08/09/2022 12:58:51

Very interesting photo, Leonid. I am of two minds about this one. I like the context provided by the upper window indicating that we are looking at a residence, not jail. But I see merit in Dorinda's and Judy's suggested crop. Should the upper window be cropped, I think the worker should be moved to the right of the lower window to restore the balance.   Posted: 08/11/2022 12:13:25
