Nicely timed shot Dave - like the movement of that hammer coming down.

Lovely shot Dave; I like the composition, lighting and the capture of movement. SmileSmileSmile

I like this, Dave - close crop, motion blur, colour rendition are all very pleasing.
Unfortunately I missed out on a good pic here because of lack of practice. I must do better Blush

Now that's different! Nice contrast of sharp control and fast-moving action.
I failed miserably, I got a measly half dozen sparks in the frame. But then I haven't had years of practice like John...

As above, I missed out on this. At first I didn't realise what was about to happen, then, when my brain engaged, I was too late.
Story of my life. At least you got it right, both static and movement in one capture.

BTW - it was the infamous six + spouses...)

The metal's not hot enough to give 'photographic' sparks, Dave.
I had the same experience a week or so before you!

PS - My father was a blacksmith so this image brings back some childhood memories...
