[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is made of wood, of course, and needs plenty of attention throughout the year. This old fisherman is doing some touches in his family boat. This service is made regularly to keep the wood healthy and it is painted every four months.
This is my contribution to the theme 'wood', in this case manufactured in a LUZZU.

PP work: cropped original, adapted the burning tool for the white hair of the old man, sharpened and framed.

Hi Francis.

If I was a betting man, a colourful boat would be your choice today.
I like the addition of the man working to repair, the perfect detail offers upo the mans skin tones and the though of being at sea for so long. tfs

stv ;o))

An interesting picture of the man at work. Obviously a shot from you Francis!
A good square presentation, and good sharpness.
I am surprised that they paint their boats every 4 months!
Tfs, regards Jean.

A well captured daily life scene with amazing sharpness and clarity, Francis!
The colors are eye-catching and details are amazing too.
I like the mood in the scene.
Good shot!

Kind regards,

Very nice scene with the fisherman at work, great colors and sharpness, well captured

Hi,you are so right.The special characteristics of wood cannot be gotten from anything else,it does take the extra commitment and dedication for maintenance.An aluminum or fiberglass Luzzu is a shocking thought.Friendly regards,Otto.

Hi Francis, one of your signature motifs for the Theme - a perfect contribution.
I like the scene "repair" - adds to the appeal.
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards - have a nice weekend - MOnika

I like this shot Francis, it makes an interesting addition to this weeks theme. The colours works well together and the lighting and detail are to your usual standard. What makes the shot work for me though is the movement of the man's hand as he works on the boat. The slow shutter has captured just the right amount of motion here. Nicely done.


Hi Francis,
Nice presentation of this daily life scene of the fisherman doing some touches in his family boat (Luzzu),
good colors and light with a sharp details,
nice colors, contrast and light,
nicely done and work for the theme.

I like your pov of this fisherman and I can see some action by the blurring of his hand while sanding the boat. Wonderful colors with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis,
Beautiful composition of an activity as well as involvement and great perfection in clarity and colour.
TFS and my regards_Joy
