WOW!!! VERY Cool! The 4 point start effect worked realyl well here. a pure black back ground would give this a nice added touch...a rare case of addition by subtraction.

Wow! That is amazing! I love how you captured the sparks flying. Very nice.

I think you would have a better picture without the starburst effect... but this is real good!

I really like this shot - the only thing I might suggest is not having the center glare going to the picture edges... (not sure what that is 'technically' called). The smaller sparks look great and the welder adds interest to the picture.

Addition of a starburst was a good idea

This is an outstanding photo. The composition is great. It tells a story. It's done so well that my eyes avert from the flame making the star effect stand out. Good job!

The use of the lens creates a wonderful effect on the light. Might be better if you cropped out a lot of the right side or lightened the dark ares to reveal them better.

Great image, he is not really welding is he ? Then I would expect the light to be so bright that the rest would have been black. I guess it is one of those sparkling firework sticks ? Doesn\'t need the big star effect. Crop away the green light. Good idea and execution. 8

great shot! Did you use a star filter? Love this one... very unique welding shot, not cliche at all

Nice picture - great composition. At last - somebody who is a worse welder than me!

Dynamic, interesting visually, and tells a story. Excellent! My 10 for the week.

nice shot. It would be even better (IMHO) if the background was completely black
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2003 11:24:33 PM
Love the colors captured in the lens flare. Well done!

How you get the X spark?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot and good use of a star filter (I'm guessing)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2003 06:45:52 PM
Love it..how'd you get the starburst?

cool

Good shot, very suitable for stock
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2003 10:42:12 AM
this is interesting - I wish the welder's mask were a little more evident. I assume it was sacrificed to the 'spark'
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2003 08:57:42 AM
I think this would have been even better with a tighter composition where the subject isn't so centered...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Eyecatching, one of the best!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/27/2003 01:22:39 AM

I like the radiation of the sparks. Good luck.
