Thanks, everyone, for the congrats and nice comments. I thought this was a pretty decent shot when I submitted, but getting a new personal best score and the ribbon was a pleasant surprise!

This photo was taken in a working/teaching blacksmith guild shop that's part of my city's historical preservation program. They wanted to purchase property that the original shop was on, so agreed to move the business to the city park and to support the guild's education program.

Congrats on the ribbon! I like the motion of the hammer and the look of concentration on his face.

The lighting is good, but the depth of field is too great and doesn't isolate the subject.

Very well done. Nothing to criticize here and hope to see you with a ribbon.

Wonderful subject and lighting here.Only thing I wish it has was sparks coming off the pipe as it's being hit by the hammer.
