    I really like what I achieved here. I feel it has some drama. But I am biased. I tried taking pics while I worked today, which was difficult with a 2 second timer.

    I am really anxious to hear what others think.

    this is a very interesting picture, i enjoy the blur of the hammer, adding some action into the photo. what exactly are you doing in this photo?

    Why only the 2 second timer? Can you not change it? I know you shoot a Canon, but I'll be mature and refrain from making a joke:lol:

    I think it tells a story well, beyond just the obvious of what is happening at the moment the photo was taken.

    I like it a lot, I wish that the only blur was in the hammer and the other hand was more in focus. really neat though

    I like this because of the what the finger tips have to say, however I would have liked to have seen the thumb and index fingers a little more focused to draw the viewer closer to the roughness of the finger tips.

    Just my two cents--I'm just a newb photographer. ;)

    Thanks for the responses. :thumbup:

    So, you are all more interested in the nasty fingers. :p
    I'll tell you my reasoning for this image now. I placed the focal point at the focus of the energy from the hammer, and the worker. I wanted you to see how I see. That I am intently concentrating on the impact of the small tool on the ring, or more precisely the prong I am tightening down to set a stone.

    I like what you were going for. The hammer doesn't come off so much as motion blur as camera shake to me..it needs a smidge more blur...and those finger tips are crying for focus.

    I really like both of them. I think the DOF is perfect on both and i like how the hammer is a little blurry in the first. It adds some movement to it. Good job.
