I used a slower shutter speed on this to try for a little motion blur on the hammer but it didn't work out somehow. And this guy was really swinging the hammer. Maybe I should have worked at this a little more, but seeing it was a last minute entry I didn't have any more time to take more pics.

He has half a finger missing on his hand.

Great use of sepia! Perfect detail. Both the hammer and hand look like they've been through some hard work. =-)

My vote for blue ribbon, the hand has so much charachter, it really looks as if the has swung the tool its whole life. I love the 'bronze' tones, especially against the black. This is a strong and powerful image in my opinion. Wonderful job!

Very special color and lighting. Strong through simplicity. At first I thought he was holding the hammer rather strange, as if it was going to slip from his hand, but then I saw your title. No 10 because the title is needed to fully appreciate the picture. 9
