In a cable trench in a sub-station - C'mon, lets have a bit of Photoshop work here and at least have his hair standing on end !! :- )

Lovely muted tones - gives it an almost 'grungy' edge which suits the topic/subject perfectly.

This is a good workman portrait. I like the toned down color. On my LCD it looks too sharp but on tube analogue sharpness is very near perfect - there is no answer.

This has the beginnings of a wonderful piece of art. This is where my inexpereince with photography is going to show through. I cannot pinpoint exactly where this off. I have no idea as to why this seem just shy of a perfect shot. This tells me that it must be something in technique or processing. As I am not a photographer, I cannot help you with those things. I would suggest sending this to the Critque Club or posting it one of the forum threads for more advice.

Nice capture, but it looks a little oversharpened.

I'm technically impaired so I can't tell what he's about. I'm going with The Cable Guy???

Nice shot and cool processing.

Should score very high, perfectly meets the challenge, good focus. the muted colors emphasize his dirty environment

Odd processing on this one - it looks as though a noise reduction process was a bit overdone. I love the expression on the subject's face and the red hose is rather strategically uniquely placed.

Good shot but something seems a bit off...maybe too sharp?

feels to be quite sharpened, more than might be needed I think.
