    This week the POTW goes to Bhushan Shikhare for his image, “Woodcutter”. There is no denying the immediately visual impact of this image. It's eye-catching. However, it also incorporates one of my other favorite elements in a photograph, and that is a sense of mystery. The color and composition lend to a feeling of exotic location. The ax laying across the Wood Cutters shoulders is what really cements this image into the great category. Try and imaging this same shot if the man's arms hung limp at his sides. I understand that Bhushan cloned in an extra bird, and I'm ambivalent as to whether that was an improvement. The image is composed in an almost perfect Golden Spiral.

    Stunning shot, it would be good as a landscape, but the ‘Woodcutter' makes it! Congrats.

    Well chosen. I was immensely impressed when @simonparks recognized that a bird was cloned in when the image was first posted. I guess that should be a wakeup call to us all. We can get fancy, and that is okay, but the world will know.

    Thank you all light stalkers, without your support and Critics my image will not reach at POTW. Special Thanks to Kent DuFault for choosing ‘Wood Cutter at Sunset' as POTW.
