A simple shot of me sawing a board in my basement - it also happens to be my work area, so i really didn't need to move much around for the shot! Not expecting too much but hope it gets in the upper fives...

I like the lighting in this shot, and the turnout of the saw movement.

Good execution but I didn't get a sense of "purpose" or "place."

Great exposure, tones and lighting. I like the motion blur of the saw as well. Well done.

Nice image - Like the tones and lighting and the slow shutter to ad some interest. Nice sharp study
