Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-10
Suggester says, "Besides having utterly gorgeous visual effects, such as beautiful light and captivating contrast, this photo also shows an aspect of work that few would register in a vivid and intimate way. To me it represents the joy and satisfaction a man feels when he has finished his daily work and is heading for a well-deserved rest. The image is also a powerful display of friendship emphasized further by the warm light. Despite its limited colour range, the image leaves an impression of vastness."

Well deserved praise from everyone . Great Alex ! It, like all work I have seen of yours is fantastic, brilliant, 'souper' as the French say !!!!!

From strength to strength! At both ends of the age spectrum. More important when it comes to you you young 'uns and you must be delighted as of course I am!

I am certain that you in turn will also be pleased to learn that this 'ere oldie in a very different ambience - one of wrinklies - is being exhibited in the Bankside Gallery,from 2nd. to 6th Dec. Not quite The Tate Modern but right next to it. This after being HIGHLY COMMENDED by a judging panel. The Annual International Competition received over 2150 applications. 101 works were selected for their Top Grading and a further 67 for their second level (ie highly commended). Still, being placed within the top 8% when ten days before my 80th. Pleases me nearly as much as your continuing success. A warm hug to both of you

Personally, I'd photoshop the Coke bottle out; it distracts from an otherwise ideal image.

:wave: Hello!

My name is Eloísa Valdes and I am one of the photojournalism gallery moderators.

I'm here to inform you that this work of yours have been featured in a news article about a collection called: Great Photojournalism in dA.

This is the number one of a series of articles featuring a few works from that collection.
This is done in such fashion, so readers won't be overwhelmed with too many thumbs to see which, as we all know, isn't really the best way of giving power to the artist... :paranoid:

Appart from the exposure you'll get from the article (depending, of course, on the number of faves it gets; if many it may reach the Community News section in dA's footers, which would mean many people looking at it and, consequentially, your work) there is also the possibility your work may be featured during a whole month in my shoutboard module for this project.

You are also welcome to join the project in other ways! To know all about it, please read the article: [link]
