Absolutely love it. I just got done working with my son on his car. My workshop bench is a complete mess compared to yours.

Didn't come up for me in voting, but I can't believe nobody connected the title and your screen name. How appropriate can you get?

Edit: Well, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Blackbox may have gotten it and was just being silly.

I wish dad's head wasn't cut off! Nice soft lighting, especially the hair light.

The rendering is wonderful, the cropping is most unfortunate. The pinewood box, the Dremel Motor box, the scale, and the man's head and elbow, all are truncated. By contrast, the boy is fully developed, as if HE were the subject of the image, yet your title suggests otherwise. So it's sending me confusing messages.

If it were my image, I'd probably have moved the camera lower so I could make this shot with the workbench occupying less real estate, and I've had been sure to include all of dad's head.

One last thing: in the BG, there's a yellow container and a yellow can (of woodstain I think) and these are REAL eyetraps, because you have developed a compositional triangle comprised of two heads and the work project, and the yellow objects are smack in the center of that, so they are really drawing the eye.

Sorry for all the nits, because I like the picture, love the processing, but I wish it were fully living up to its potential.
