"People at Work" Splitting Slate
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This was taken in a Cornish Slate Quarry,apparently a new splitting shed will soon be in use,luckily for me this old shed has a much more interesting BG,even if the light was poor.|
Taken in RAW colour and converted to BW in CS5.
Some minor adjustment in PS curves and sharpened using High Pass filter.

Quite an art to splitting these slates properly,so as to keep any spoilage to a minimum,I would expect Les.
I like that you preferred to show his action of splitting the slate with a slow shutter speed, to get that blurred motion movement of his right hand.You mentioned that the light was poor,you have handled it well & all of the varied textures have been captured in clarity & detail.Fits this weeks them well.

Its a joy watching slate being cut this way.
Ideal tones to show off this scene, and ideal addition to theme week.

Very nice action shot and very good contribution for the theme of friday, I like very much the choise of B/W.
The détails and the perfect light for the composition, excellent frame too.
My best regards.
Hello Les, it is indeed fascinating watching these skilled workers.
The b/w works effectively here, and his action with his arm in the air adds to the documentary.
Hi,excellent study of a man at work,well composed with great shades and tones.All the best Otto.

A good contribution to the theme. Very different and interesting, and not too shabby for a high ISO shot. The relatively slow shutter worked nicely to capture his hand movement.
