So what kind of work does one do with an anvil of this size? Would be nice to put a plant pot on. Still looks good too. Good shot............Sandy

Great colours in this image though this seems to apply to all your images. The subject matter is also focused very well.

Technically, I think this photograph has been well-taken. In my opinion, the exposure is correct, the focussing on the main subject is sharp and the lighting is appropriate for this main subject.

Artistically, you have filled the frame with your main subject, A Good Thing according to The Rules Of Thumb, especially the one which states that if you think you are close enough to your main subject then you should get closer!

If there is a problem with this photograph, then I think it is in the top right-hand corner. Your main subject contrasts well with the background in the photgraph apart from the top right-hand corner. Even in the top right-hand corner there is still colour contrast between the main subject and the background. So even if there is a problem with this photograph, it is not a very big one.
