Two guys at the fair, talking about life and such. Inside the barn there are steam driven machines, tractors, combines and small train engines.

Hi Linda

It took an eternity to get into TL but here I am at last! A sUperb daily life scene with excellent shadow detail at left & good sharpness. Looks like only the older folks are interested in the old machinery? Wonderful lighting contrasts with only a tiny bit of oe in the highlights. Tfs!

A step more to the left, will gives the pointing man a better view IMO

Dear Linda B-)

Chris already said some wonderful words on this picture :)
He has a great sense of humor :D

This is a well taken daily-life shot with well managed light and exposure.
The mood is well caught and colors add life into the scene.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Hi Linda,a nice capture of folks at the fair. You have captured a piece of the activities with your image.I really like your colours captured,esp'of the wood of the barn. Sharp,clear & detailed capture of the two buddies having a chin wag. I agree with yanm,that either one of these fellows were to move a little to one side, so that we could glimpse a little more of the seated mans face,it would add to the composition.I'm not to sure about the reflection of the eyeglasses of the people resting inside the barn,they do pull the eye into that area & I find they compete with the two old boys,who I think were your main subjects?Still a good shot,just offering up my two cents worth.TFS
Best Wishes
