Road Makers Feet

Newer Older

While driving back home I noticed some workers working on a concrete road near East of Kailash in New Delhi, India.

I was shocked to see, these guys had no boots on there feet and were working on this rough surface all day long, just like this

I greatful to my life, I have a pair of shoes...

    Nice composition. I feel that the color is a little uneven. The brick wall is nicely saturated, but his shirt and pants appear washed out. I agree that since his feet are the main subject, a wider shot would allow for the whole foot.

    Also, his "fly" is open. You lose 5 points for that. Think how that would affect the children if they were to see his winkie in this picture. (JUST KIDDING: Satire on the inane comments sometimes seen on Flickr)

    A great, meaningful shot. I like the contrast between the dull colored clothes and the brightly colored wall. It works very well symbolically. Only drawback is the chopped off toe at the bottom.

    great colors and composition. I don't mind not being able to see his face, this image is about his hands and feet.
    I wish his foot wasn't cut off at the bottom.

    I feel the framing could be improved as has been said before.

    It would have been better for you to mask out the areas that you didn't want to increase the red tones. What you have done is amplify a lot of reds in his legs and pants that take away from the image.

    I really like this picture. The vibrant reds of the bricks contrasts very strongly with the dirtiness of the rest of the picture. I think it would have been better to crop wider, though. In the future, take wider shots and crop in photoshop, not in camera. You can always crop more off, but you can't create more of the picture in photoshop.

    Cool image. You get the feeling of the work that has been going on. The colors are vibrant as well.

    It's a very well taken photograph. the colours are all there and so is the sharpness. The only problem for me is the composition. I would have loved to see the whole person and not just their lower half. Therefore, I cannot give this full points.

    you have pinpointed the ochres, reds, browns, and beiges of the ancient artists Davinci and co and have used them in this photo. Isn't that awesome!
