Pre plastic era, things were made to last. Craftsmanship, baby.
Superb B&W scene like a HDR. Very well done, we can feel iron .

HDR? I like the strong details.

Wow!! What great processing that really brings out excellent tones! The B&W really emphasizes the "steeliness". And what perfect timing to capture the sparks!

@Steven: Thanks, Steven. I used a "chrome" effect in processing, rather than HDR, to emphasize contrast and edges. The shutter speed wasn't excessively quick at 1/60th due to the somewhat low light in this work area, and I think I timed up three or four iron strikes to catch this particular spark.
A fabulously gritty image as befits the subject. Wonderful details in the spotlight worthy image.

I think your processing is dead right. A truly magnificent result. You capture the man working so hard. I like the detail on all of the tools he uses. A great photograph Rick. 5*

Fantastic!! Superb image with these textures, ambiance, and even the sparkles!! A scene from another era (and I don't want to conjecture about your age)
