    I like the way this old boy is concentrated on his work: I feel clearly that this is the focus of your picture. Nice composition and colours.

    He's hard at work. I love talking to these guys at fairs etc. They are so full of knowledge. This image makes me want to step in and chat with him a bit.

    Great character study and a story as well.

    Thanks for the positive comments - I didn't have the opportunity to talk to this old fellow, but I was so impressed by his dedication to his steam machinery that I just had to take a shot. Old Finn, I cropped the right because the background was so unappealing (garbage cans etc.), and I couldn't effectively clone them out.

    Wonderful character study, love all the action in the background nicely blurred so it does not distract.

    Nice action-portrait. Good work, but when cropping, would it have been possible to leave more room to the right side?

    a good portrait shot with lots of interest and colour. the shallow DOF fades the background out well but still interesting with the yellow in the tractor wheel
