very clever, the worker behind is picking up the plank of wood and the shadow infront shows another worker bringing it somewhere. the scene also tells the viewer something about the heat of the day. will like to know if the lack of details in the shadow and highlight areas are intentional?

in a way, yes. I deliberately played up the curves to punch up the contrast, to show the glaring heat that these workers were labouring under. details were lost but i think it was worth it.

no problem it's a picture worth sharing. although the loss of details seem a little disturbing at first but like you said, it was worth it for the effect created by the curve adjustment.

thanks for the comments, all. I actually cropped off the head of the worker deliberately when I was taking the shot. Cos i wanted to capture the shadow in the bright sunlight and infer to the work they were doing with the worker behind. I'm more inclined to take ortega's suggestion to crop some more off and really tighten on the shadow portion.
