One from last year.

Inspired by Alex Webb. For me, he's the modern master of composition and color. Check out his book "The Suffering of Light" if you're interested.

The people, their clothing and faces, the vegetables in the green plastic bag and the yellow fruit or vegetables to the right are all beautifully picked out by the light streaming in from the right. Their expressions seem to show an easy affability that suffuses the entire image. The slice of the outside day in the upper left opens everything up. Within that area the wires, telephone pole and gizmo are nicely composed, as is the overall scene. I looked up the photographs of Alex Webb and appreciate how well "Farmer's Market" holds itself in his company. Finely accomplished.

what a great slash of light, and by extension, color.

light, man, & woman are one creature.

Love the light on the faces and picking out the details of the produce.

Stunning. One of your best, Henry.
There is so much to this story. The capture is like an interior still, the man smoking and looking with pride at the woman packing the harvest, a sense of well being and a bit of a secrecy also.

And you're right about thinking of Alex Webb. The crisp quality and vibrancy of the photograph is, yes, again, stunning.

the angling and position of the figures are great - it feels like a classical painting
