You are watching at the repairwork done on a rudder. Welding is so difficult, I was permitted to try it but the electrode constantly sticked to the steel and even managed to burn a hole in it. So better leave the job to this skilled craftsman.

thanks for looking and any critique welcome, alfred

Photographing welding is supposedly as difficult as doing it. If you found the welding hard, at least you have made the photography look easy!
I think this is an excellent image, full of shapes, details and action; having tried welding myself, I can say that all a welder's requirements are in the picture too. Well taken!

Splendid job of a tricky subject. Lots of detail and interest....sparks, glove, tools, and a really fine composition.

Agree with above, both the welding and its photography are a lot more difficult than it looks.
