Re: Man at work...

Hello Stephen,

Brilliant!  Definitely the best (environmental) portrait I've seen this year.  I particularly enjoy the man's gaze / perspective combo and of course the mixed lighting and colours.

In the way of changes, I would get rid of that tree or telegraph pole on the left to open out the night, and possibly clone out the silver car too.  Also, darkening the white area in the the truck would reduce the distraction potential and brightening (or adding contrast to) his face just a touch might help too.

Overall I think you've composed a cracker here.  Did you ask him to pose or was it a purely opportunistic shot?

Best wishes,
