I was invited to shot at a friends 'composting open day' on his farm, I got this shot at the end of the day just as they were packing up.

Nice capture. It doesn't look posed, and I like the treatment. They really stand out the background...maybe a tad much in a few spots, but it might just be the lighting.

The treatment is very good. Really makes this picture interesting. Nice work! :)

Great capture. They look so relaxed and comfortable and the composition works well for me. Nicely done.

Thanks guys,

I over exposed nearly all my shots on the day by mistake, (I should have looked at the histogram) so had to pull them back in post production.

Antz I think I may have been a bit sloppy with my mask around the people, I was using the tracker pad on laptop...

I really like this Richard. They look like they will just walk out of the photo!! Very natural poses, great composition and cool treatment. Definitely a keeper! :highfive:

I like it too because it also looks like they had good productive day's work and are getting ready to head to the pub for a pint....such a great story in this photo! :)

Cool enviromental portrait of three rather 'true grit' sort of characters.
