I see no technology here at all. Not high tech or low tech. I see constuction and simplicity. The image itself is well done, lighting good for the effect, but somewhere in here a ton of resampled grain and archive bits showed up. (unless the spotting in the border and shadows was intentional for art, I found it quite distracting). Good average for focus and detail in the subject, heavy losses for challenge interpretation and final presentation that appears mottled.

if it really is falling - it doesn't show in the photo.

This is a good example of tried and true low tech. Nice stop motion capture. Well exposed, and artistically presented.

Doesn't look tack sharp and when you have just a screw in the picture it better carry it

The border hurts this, the top blends in w/ the b/g to much try adding some light to the top of the bolt.
