I bow to someone that would consider an auto mechanic and honest work fitting to be used together. Thank You.
Great picture. Toils & hard work are well reflected here.

I really like the black and white with the subject. It helps to create a very real feeling. If you have any pointers that you can give me on black and white photography I would greatly appreciate it.

This is a very nice shot.

I couldn't improve this if my life depended on it. I think the lighting is inspired, the detail of the grease on his hands is amazing, full of emotion. None of the background details are distracting either. I absolutely love this. 10

I love this photo. It is simple, yet gives a clear view to the working hands of a laborer.

Very representative of this challenge. Excellent sharpness. Lighting - just a tad dark, but I think I'm O.K. with that. Nicely done! 9 Rob the Swash

Excellent! The tone, grime and texture of the hands and the rag that mimcs the skin - a ribbon for sure - good luck -10

This is one of the shots of hands in this challenge that I really like. I think that the dirtiness of your subjects hands really makes it sharp. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/27/2003 12:57:04 PM
Very nice photo. Grreat range of tones, and different to most other shots in the challenge, as you have got up close and personal! I like it!

I work at a dealership Myself...and even had thoughts of this, but, you did a better job than I think I would have...you even got that "Low key" thing down:) 9

I like the texture of the hands. A very realistic photo...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2003 07:22:25 PM
really amazing, the dirt on his hands is tough, and the dof was well done, and the light from the back really tops it off. my only critisism is that maybe if you would have zoomed out and also had gotten the arms of this man into the photo, it might have been better. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/23/2003 05:22:27 PM
I love it! The texture and clarity is wonderful. Love the shallow DOF, too. Wouldn't mind seeing just a bit more detail of the tools, but that's such a nitpick. One of my favorites so far this challenge.
