I thought we were back on the 'Belfast' for a moment . . not sure if we are not !

29 Apr 2013 6:01am

@Ronnie 2¢: When I see the chap sat down(Jeff Boult) for a beer sometime this week, I'll pass on your thoughts about him looking like a dummy. Do watch out for a bloke with glasses and a 12 bore after that!

The colour and processing makes me think of a Dutch master painting.

29 Apr 2013 8:40am

David from Avranches, France

Terrific shot, reminds me of some great historic meeting - something like first get together of the communists in Russia, 1908 or whatever.
Is it a chess game?

29 Apr 2013 10:36am

@rick: Nope, not a chess game

Devi from Chennai, India

Great portrayal here !! Over two cups of coffee he's insisting - "This has to be done!!! "

I'm guessing this is on the ship ... those men certainly do look real.

29 Apr 2013 1:06pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: They are very real, and it's not on the ship

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

I just love the intensity and human focus on this one, Chris...You really composed this wonderfully if I may say...and the feel is so very convincing. Wonderful piece here, sir!

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

You have certainly captured their intensity here. The one with the glasses is very determined.

@Ruthiebear: He is indeed

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

And the decision is very serious! A good image! Best regards, Adela

CATCHLIGHT from Reading, United Kingdom

Great shot Mr, it really does put across the nature of the man and his job.

29 Apr 2013 8:59pm

Becky from los angeles, United States

These are the gentlemen from weapons to musical instruments team? This shot is amazing. I'm listening to what he has to say - he knows what he wants.

29 Apr 2013 9:26pm

@Becky: I can see why you might say that as the Director, (The gentleman seated in the middle of the shot), did feature in a pivotal role in the PWO pics. This is a large (20 plus ) Commercial video production taking place in disgusting weather in Wales. The location of this shot is a hut in the middle of nowhere with tiny windows, hence the dramatic lighting.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

This looks pretty serious. Great light and POV. Amazing expressions.

29 Apr 2013 10:30pm

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

~~~Ann~~~ from Nelson, New Zealand

Wish I could be there!! might you do a virtual photo walk? People taking part on the day who have smartphones could email pics or even video via Skype or google + to people who would have liked to join in but can't.

I think Jeff will be right.
