GRADE : HONOURS
A good “caught-in-the-moment” image. This chap really does look pleased with himself and, as the title suggests, the feeling of achievement is very much present. The composition and exposure are good. I also like the slight blur at the bottom of the hand towel. The background provides just the correct amount of detail to add credibility to the story. The lighting on the subject is good and you have the correct amount of separation between the man and the background machinery. Consider taking a small crop from the top and lefthand side of the image. This would concentrate the viewer’s attention even further. Well done.
