Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 30 May 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I took a couple of shots of this guy some months ago when I was up early one morning on the seafront watching them crane the boats back for the summer.

Canon EOS 500D 1/800 second F/5.6 ISO 100 300 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

How many hats has he got on? I can see two, but from the way he's squinting I'm not sure he can see very much at all:)

This guy's just full of character - from his hat under the hardhat to the half open mouth as he looks on. Fantastic eye for this portrait, Doug!

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I like the perspective you captured. The bright orange hat first caught my attention. Then I began to notice all of the details - the second hat under the hardhat, the expression on his face, etc. Very nice portrait.

Joyce from Montana, United States

Touches my heart, this seasoned old fellow, wearing the helmet because it is required but showing his real spirit self beneath with so many decades of life having aged his form, he keeps on keeping on, squinting into the deathless sun.
