Are you looking for feedback on these? To be honest they look like snapshots and could even be mobile phone shots. I think a bit more creativity is required to turn it in to a good photo.

To add to this you may want to think about lighting and selective contrast.

I'd agree w/ the snapshot comments. The framing is off on some and they need to be gritty to get the Blacksmith feel IMO.

Thanks for your feedback both; it is useful in that my motivation (namely the light reflected on the subjects face and just enough hammer movement plus showing the very dark surrounding smithy) has not come across (note to self).

To be sure the subject was not taking direction, despite a constant two way dialogue I never got eye contact from him, all the light is natural. In retrospect these shots might have been better posted in Travel.

I get the comment of a gritty approach, personally I would have gone for full B&W conversion with solid blacks to achieve this, but that would have lost the warmth of the red glow.

Urban I like your shot and I like the grin he has, personally I would prefer more punch to the image in terms of PP added contrast.

Thanks again.
