I would rather have seen some much more of his face and much less of the building behind him.

That thing in mid-air and the building are both distracting.
The saw is virtually edge on as is the plank he is sawing.
A better angle and moment are called for.

Nice exposure and developing do not make this picture a success.

I feel like there's some possibility here echoing the shapes of the windows behind in the saw frame, but this picture didn't get that.

What is he building? It is boat-shaped, but does not appear to be a boat at all (unless he's using some extremely unorthodox building techniques..)

Thanks Lew, you have an eagle eye. Here are two others that you might want to look at and comment on for me if you can spare the time:

Thanks for the observation Andrew, that hadn't occurred to me. He's working on a church spire, which will have an onion shape a bit like those on the Kremlin in Moscow.
