A potter in Aali, Bahrain sits in a well and twirls his pottery wheel with his foot.
Du très joli travaille sur la teinte de cette photo.

Love the earth tones in this image. This is a wonderful composition.

I like your processing of this ... potters are fascinating people, with such gentle hands.

Really nice processing, it compliments the photo very well! Excellent portrait.

Ah, this one is for Rabbit from Virginia. I like the treatment here!

I don't know. He looks pretty hairy to me! :0) Cool shot!

LOL That was funny Michael! Aside the satiric notion, this is a pretty great portrait of the life of a Potter, I love it...

@Lorraine: Thanks so much, Lorraine.
Beau traitement qui convient bien au sujet en lui donnant un look ancien.

Hehe, nice title, fine shot!

great portrait in beautiful tones... great effects...

Your title just kills me!
What a beautiful and thoughtful image. I love his concentration and your monotones work so beautifully, as if he is part of the clay he is about mold.

@bluechameleon: Glad you enjoyed the title. Many thanks, BC.
I like the grainy washed out look of the photo! It seems to fit the atmosphere. Really nice candid shot showing an artist at work!

I read the title, view the image, and it wasn't until I read the comment of bluechameleon that I got it...lol...twas a blonde moment for sure. You seem to have created an artsy image of an artist at work. I like the sepia tone too.

Interesting work on this shot. A funny title for this vision of handworking.
17 Oct 2008 4:35pm
I really like the sepia tones - actually they look rather clay coloured which is a nice tribute to the work of this guy. I also like the focus on his face and how he's intent on his work.

Another wonderful image Michael. Went into your VFXY and added many of your pictures as my favorites now that I am on there as well.
17 Oct 2008 5:54pm
@Marion: Thanks, Marion. That's very kind. I visited your VFXY as well.
you are great with tones!! beautiful!!

Very interesting capture - it almost looks like he's shaping a baby's milk bottle. Great post processing as well.
17 Oct 2008 9:43pm
What's he making? It seems like a vase, but I may be wrong... its a good picture, Michael..
17 Oct 2008 10:19pm
@Sammi: Thank you, Sammi. He's making a jar with a top.
ahhh the artisan at work, such a sweet shot!!

I like this work. nice effect you used, Michael.

I've never seen a potter in a well before. Is there an advantage to sitting in a well? Thanks for sharing this interesting photograph.
20 Oct 2008 1:50pm
@blistr: They move the wheel with their feet by sitting in the well. Just an Asian version of people powered machinery. I can't see any real advantage. Thanks for commenting.
pleasing tones. great image.
