These workers were building a new hotel at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, and I could watch them from high up across the street . Most of the pictures were good, but when the top-hat stood up, this rhythm of the hats suddenly appeared.

Wow!! It looks a bit like they are doing a wave! Or like they are impersonating a musical scale, blue hats being the one beat notes and yellow hats the half a beat notes! Awesome choreographically collaboration between the lads, and I like the post processing a lot.
Well seen and a truly nice catch!!
Thank you. I looked at leaving only the hats in colour but decided just to desaturate the background a bit.
Excellent capture!! wonderful perspective and great timing!!
Thanks, but do not forget the luck.
Desaturating the background created a fascinating depth, it is a wonderful image Faul.
Great grab Faul….ahhh the luck of it all!!!!!But that’s what good photography is all about… right time right place…Have a great Festive mate..Cheers Lee
Fantastic image! Very well done!
Yes, great rhythm/spacing/timing… excellent !!
…and luck. Thanks
Thank you so much for the feature. People at work is my favourite group. Really.
This is such a terrific capture and so clear and sharp. You are most welcome for the feature :-)
Such great composition and coloring! It was nice of these construction workers to wear that coordinating gear. :D
Thanks you very much. Well, when I saw them all I had to do was find a good vantage point, watch them and… click. The colour and composition was up to Lady Luck.
Great shot and love the colours!
