Nice Matt, very well lit. I'd like to see a bit more of the ski and the p-tex, but like the inclusion of the iron etc. for context. I still do my own repairs by candle, but I'm sure that he does a lot cleaner work.

This is a very well done photo, Matt. I absolutely love the light you have on him. Very nice job handling the reflections from the main, that I assume is just off to the camera left. the kicker coming from our right is a sweet touch as well. I also love the combination of the DOF and the dimmer light in the BG, that's just enough for us to get an idea of what's back there, but keeping our focus on him. Then of course the bonus flame on the ski. Man, no nits from me on this one, just love it all around.

Beautiful shot, you have captured the care and precision that goes into the task

I like the way that the main is coming from the same direction as the desk lamp, which adds realism to the lighting

Oo this is really nice. Lightning is created very well! I would like to see a bit more of the surface of the ski which could've been done by moving closer and using wider focal length. But that would've distorted his face so I guess this is the best way to do this

Good stuff!

Really nice image. Would mean much more, to an informed viewer like I am uniformed, if this could be part of a series that explained more of what's going on.

Very nice shot and great light. Being from the South though, I can only guess what he is doing and why. Someone inform someone who has never skied. Because I have no idea, the iron seems out of place. Very nice work.

He's filling in the scratches on the skis, "tuning them".

this is it.

it's a good image, but you may want a little more context w/r/t what is actually being done. i ski, so i figured it out, but it took a second and i can definitely see people who don't ski wondering what's going on.

not sure if this is part of a larger body of work that clarifies things a bit more though. in that case you may be just fine w/r/t the information presented. even so, think about your caption and maybe you could word it a little differently to give a bit more information.

nice to see someone documenting.
