A blacksmith at work. I have gone for a different crop on this one to concentrate on his hand rather than his face. What do you think? Does it work?

I think this works very well. I like the way you've got only the hand to motion blur. The mono treatment has a very appropriate look for the subject. Excellent stuff.

Yes, it works, I think you could eliminate the face entirely as well!

It does work, no doubt.
I would have "dare" even more by cropping on the left and bottom part (see mod).
The face is an important part of the picture, driving the eye through the diagonal of the picture.
very well done
