It's Time of a Season ...(for roof repair) :)))


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

A magnificent texture returned by this light perfectly got on this worker's body. I also like this composition which reveals you of so much ;)

I think my home was hit recently pretty hard by wind damage. I, ugh, might just need some repairs made. This is really a fantastic image with the sun hitting his back just right. The shadow is perfect along his face.

Capture of the effort in one shot. I like the wire in diagonal, gives power to the capture. Well done!

by the way... I hear last night she finally got it ,-)

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

More bronze. A lovely sheen on that skin. Nice portrait of man at work though if I was him I'd be worried about boiling my brains.
It should be the time of the season here too but yet again (third year in a row) the jet stream is in the wrong place and we have monsoon weather. Is it telling us something I wonder.

Mike from United States

Well, there you go again with these strange people in strange places. I don't know how you get these shots. Did you climb up on the roof? This is a really great shot of someone doing something. It makes for a very interesting portrait. The colors and clarity are really nicely done and it really doesn't look like you're looking up. Very nice!

20 Jul 2009 2:49pm

@Mike: Thanks Mike . My camera really surprised me with such a clear shot . Of course I was down on a street, and was staring at that cool, sexy body :))

PATRICK from miramas, France

just excellent!!!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Yes, it's that time of year. If you live close to fir trees, it's time to clean the needles and moss off your roof. What a job. Great shot.

Don from spokane, United States

I can't imagine how hot it would be working on roofs in mid-summer. This fellow looks so fit! Fine shot.

Someone is working really hard in the Sun. And you did a great job of presenting to so very well.

flyingwind风飞扬 from Taiyuan, China

Very very crisp and transparent powerful portrait of MAN!!! The color saturation of his skin gives a strong demonstration that his work is not easy , maybe everyday he works under the sun... However, I think he admires to devote himself with his work and to taste the happniess from it! Your eyes are bright and often cool candid shots with deep senses or thought can be done by YOU!!!

Liang from San Francisco, United States

awesome shot. very heard at work indeed!

Graham Russon from Cape Town, South Africa

Great shot, textures and lighting are great.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

It must have been a somewhat windy and/or cool day seeing that he has not broken out in the sweat. You can definitely see he's done his time in the sun. Great detail!

20 Jul 2009 8:23pm

Ti from Alpharetta, United States

Now that's a work hazard working without a shirt while wearing nipple rings! It could get caught while swinging a hammer, or by a exposed nail while climbing up and down a ladder. :-)

What? Don't tell me you were not drawn attention to his nipple ring? God knows what other rings he may have on his body parts.... :-)

20 Jul 2009 9:18pm

@Ti: ha ha ..sure, he has earrings, do not you see it ? :))

Roman from Thunder Bay, Canada

Oh yeah Mariana !!! you naughty girl you.. !!
it's not the roof that caught your attention here now, is it ???..... it's that gorgeous male body, isn't it ???... LOL !!!!!

Lee from Fort Frances Ontario, Canada

Mariana, you are a very naughty girl. But, a great shot.
