This is an environment I like a lot. You have captured it very well with good details. You might consider to selectevely increase the contrast, to make the image 'pop' a bit more.

this screams out for a b&w version, or even sepia if you're in to that sort of thing.

Great shot. My dad had a friend who was a blacksmith- the last in our area-... man, how I wish I could have visited his shop and taken a photo like this one. A human element would have even added a nice touch. Do you have any with the blacksmith in the corner/edge of the photo?

I wouldn't convert it to B&W, I think it's very nice as is.

I can smell the iron in the air.

Great scene, I'm waiting to hear the clang of the hammer. The image is great as is and I like the tone and feel of it. I've looked at it for quite awhile now, and keep finding new details which is awesome. It's as close to exploring a blacksmith shop as I will ever get. In my humble opinion I like the original image. B&W would work, but would not necessarily be better.

This is a perfect setting for a greater shot.
I think this photo would improve 500% with a old blacksmith hammering away at some heated iron object with his tools.
I agree, a grizzled old smitty would do nicely!
