    A first and a ninth this month! I thought it was my birthday month not yours! I loved the ding and rated it better than this. You take out the prize for ingenuity.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Always appreciated.
aoc - If I did that Jade would no doubt point out that the bell is usually rung before anything gets sold. Glad you heard the ding :-

Old Finn - As you no doubt guessed I was trying to add movement to indicate that the bell was being used. Perhaps I should have used a faster speed to lessen the blur. My assistant used to play baseball and tends to swing with vigor. I could see the shop lady wondering if her bell would withstand another hit LOL).

Bernie - right on. Problem is the shop is inside a huge barn (Flea Market). I do have this very neat (and cheap) plastic attachment that softens the flash from the camera. However it does not work if it is on the shelf at home :-(

    Reminds of an 80's disco song by Anita Ward.

I like the off-center placement of the bell. The blurred hand shows the action of ringing it. The lighting looks dull, but I don't know if fill flash would have worked in this setting. Perhaps a bounced flash off the ceiling would have done well.

    Good idea, but I feel the unsharpness of the hand distracting.

    Great idea. I'm sure everyone can hear the noise.

    Evocative with interesting focal use.

    forgot about these bells (rarely see them anymore). Thanks for reminding me with this well composed shot

    Evokes the 'ding' of the bell perfectly. The similar red tones are a nice touch, too. Might tell more of a 'story' if there were a credit card and item for purchase resting on the counter (just a thought...)

    So clever - definitely an international sound.
