The iron bird guarding the tools is also made of tools. The local blacksmith makes animals from recycled iron tools. (3 years and 186 days ago)

I really like the humour of this photograph. It is well taken and clear with good contrast and marginal space showing. It may be a more effective presentation if you nipped off , just a bit, on our left side. Very lovely entry to study. Thank.

author says:

Thank you for the feedback Olga. I appreciate it. However, I can't see that cropping anything off would improve it in any way so I will leave it as it is.
As it is, the body and wings of the metal bird are on the rule of thirds. Cropping some from the left side would ruin that.

There is a time and place to break rules and you can break them when you understand them. A bit more of a crop, would hold the focal area larger for the the viewer and engage us more. "Suum cuique pulchrum est" - to each his own.

author says:

I agree. Sometimes it's just a matter of taste. To each his own. I like it the way it is. If it doesn't engage you enough the way it is, you need to vote accordingly.

The picture was clicked during evening at the Lauh Stambh (The Iron Pillar), Qutb Minar, New Delhi, India. It is a 7 m (23 ft) high column, notable for the rust-resistant composition of the metals used in its construction. The pillar has attracted the attention of archaeologists and metallurgists and has been called "a testament to the skill of ancient Indian blacksmiths" because of its high resistance to corrosion.

As Patient as Job - created by cahyman

The Iron Skillet is a popular truck stop and restaurant in North Las Vegas, Nevada, quite near the Speedway. This particular afternoon, one waitress was serving all of the afternoon stragglers who were deciding between breakfast, lunch, dinner, or perhaps just a cup of coffee and a glass of ice-cold water....

This waitress definitely deserves high marks as a member of the working class who is surviving our present economy.

Steps followed:
1) Contrast was increased in a curves level based on the Green channel
2) Silver Efex Pro 2 utilized to convert image to B/W
3) A warm Photo Filter applied
4) Reflective gradient level was applied
5) NIK Cep 4 filter applied
6) Photozoom was used to reduce size of image

Great photo, I would crop a bit off the top to put more focus on the people.
I'm not sure about the filters you have used, especially the NIK Cep 4, but I'm sure someone who knows more about what those filters do, will let us know.

author says:

Good idea; i.e., small amount of cropping. NIK Cep4 is Nik Software created for color corrections. I processed the image long enough ago that I no longer remember why I used the filter LOL NIK is now owned by Google (Surprise, surprise ;^)
Thanks for your comment. Appreciated.

Nice shot, but don't put your name in comments. It destroys anonymity.

Great capture of an everyday occurence. Her expression speaks volumes. Would like to have seen in hi res.

author says:

Thanks BeSea. I suspect that it was the end of a long, long day. She's part of a series I'm working on called "Survival;" It deals with the mundane jobs we take, just to keep trucking along. I appreciate your comment.
