Note: I've resubmitted this photo after using the PS Skew (Edit... Transform... Skew) feature to straighten the vertical line of the right hand brick wall. I've deleted the original entry. Thanks!

Great comp on this - the different heights of the workers make it almost a ballet...nice job, Paul. #698092

Thanks for the comment Bonnie. I'm pleased you like it. Yes, it was the composition of the scene that caught my eye... and the workers unknowlingly cooperated by staying "in place" for two minutes while I got my shots. Best wishes... #698145

Bet you thought this one was dead, Paul -- just saw it come up in rotation on the contest page and it caught my eye immediately. I love the colors, the lines and the composition. Wonderful winner then and still is. Congratulations. #8420764

Paul Conlan 2/27/2010 3:37:37 PM

Dead on BP anyway! Ha... I didn't know there was a rotation on the contest page... but I'm glad you found it and like it. It is special to me for the very reasons you said, though many don't seem to get it. Thank you for your comment and best wishes...
