The frozen tuna carcasses at Tsukiji produce a swirling ground fog. A wholesaler wades through the mist to inspect the cut tail sections for quality.
PS: Cropped out irrelevant persons, cut out overhead lights, enhanced highlights toward blue spectrum and reduced yellowish tint of market lights.

Very interesting and lively shot. The foggy bottom left quarter is stunning, and the man's position evaluating the fish is very well catched. Lot's of interesting details in the background, out of focus enough to differenciate from the main subject. I would just have preferred your DOF slightly backwards, centered on the man. But a great shot anyway.

Originale photo, comme il a l'air de faire froid. Bien réussie. Bravo
Original photo, as it seems to be cold. Made a success well. Bravo

A fascinating glimpse into daily life - well done! I just wish the background were slightly less sharp, and that the wholesaler was slightly more sharp... Good job :-D

Excellent Tsukiji market shot. The fog is just amazing. Very nice daily life capture.

Nice shot. I like the subject and the way you have presented it here. My only two comments would be that I would have liked to have the man in focus and the background more blurry as its a bit too busy. Overall well done!

Very interesting shot and comments.

Brilliant image OW, I agree with other comments, the background lets the picture down slightly, but shouldn't be too difficult to sort out in Photoshop, it would make a big difference.

I, too, would have liked the man in focus. The subject and composition are very good.

Great potential here. Well spotted.
The background is a definate detraction though. I think that a tighter crop on the feet, maguro and dry-ice fog stills makes an interesing photograph (cut it in half).

I find the guy on the left distracting and would consider cutting him out. Unfortunately the only thing in focus seems to be a corner of tuna in the foreground. But even with the soft focus, it's a nice shot.
