I am a carpenter/contractor. Too bad I didnt see this challenge a week ago, I could have got an intense photo.

This is staged, he isnt working. I nailed a couple 2x4 on the ridge, and asked him if he would pose. No problem.

The photo doesnt reflect the height accurately. He is 30 feet in the air. We do this daily. Add a 20-40 MPH North wind as a typical summer afternoon here, and it gets intense.

I love my job.

I dont know how this will score. I give up guessing. I thought my 48 hour free study was good, but it scored mediocre.

See what happens when you suggest I boost colors, sharpness and contrast in my images.

Too bad it isnt working for my free study, and Bokeh entry ;-D

Spot-on for the challenge, probably makes all of us think is that guy nuts?! Great job conveying height. Must be some expensive real estate!

Beautiful! The light is warm and sure he's putting himself in high risk.

Pretty nice but still there seems to be something wrong with the image qualit of this image, some strange artefacting/noise in his pants and some sharpening halo as well like you oversharpened it.

Nice capture - Like the tones - Composition is a little boring and a tad more contrast could have added some punch

Contrast could be boosted a bit to enhance the horizon but I still gave this high marks. Good composition, good subject matter. Personally I would like the see the worker more in the right third than the center but that is just my taste.
