That's a great action portrait. Good composition, leading lines, colour and easy to recognize the subject. You should contact him and see if he would like a copy? It would make a great poster for his office or advertising.
one small note, I'd probably try and darken the midtones, it comes off a little bright, at least on my monitor.
Thanks Allan, Diane and Bob. Thanks for the advice. I'm glad the update worked out OK. I did a global change to the mid-range but then used a Layer Mask to reduce the darkening effect on the gentleman in the shot to try and make him standout. Derek
Like the others I prefer the more contrasty option.
This of course is a reasonably common occurrence down here. Aussies refer to eucalypts as 'widdow-makers' due to their propensity to drop a large bough without warning.
In built-up areas tree fellers regularly go up 80-100 feet and start felling the tree from the top, often with the help of a mobile crane to lower the bigger boughs to the ground. Then they have very powerful chippers that can turn large logs into woodchips - which incidentally they then sell back to the public as garden mulch at a high price. So a big tree becomes a trailer load of chips.
I imagine their workers insurance premiums are about as high as the trees they fell!
