About the Image(s)


Title: Midday in the Market (Myanmar)
Sony 7Rii E18-200 @ 24mm
ISO 320
1/60 sec at F7.1
Aperture Priority
Spot metering (for the face)

Slightly cropped, bit of fiddling with colour, slight sharpening. This appeals to me as it shows a hard working man enjoying his rest period, in his own environment, oblivious to the world around him

Interesting how we read different things into the same subject. To me, this is a homeless person who may have found a shady spot to grab some sleep undisturbed.
The image is very well done and tells whatever story one reads into it.   Posted: 10/03/2021 12:03:26

Nice capture of the sleeping workman in his environment. It appears that he has just finished lunch and is taking a bit of a rest. I can't tell what type of work he does; something to do with fishing nets. (Fish Market?)

I think you framed him nicely, for me he stands out well for the shaded background. I think the background adds the context needed to make the image interesting. The soft directional light works well in this image, helping his features stand out.

I am wondering if you could dodge down the brightness of the trees a little so that the sheds in the background stand out a little more, adding to the context of the man's working environment.   Posted: 10/10/2021 15:36:34
