    Thanks to all who enjoyed the photo and to those who commented. In answer to the comment made by dodrizzt i did attempt a lansdcape shot and also one that incorporated a full view of the operator, but this removed the emphasis of the grinding sparks, and this, after all was the effect that i was trying to achieve. So a close up avoiding at all costs getting sparks on the lens was the option i took. Once again thanks all..... I'm quite chuffed.

    Unfortunately this time I was unable to participate, but this is the kind of pic I would have liked to get, something with sparks or similar :-) nicely done, maybe a landscape crop would have been nice also, to show more of the machinery, or a portrait take to show more of the person, but no doubt a great pic, my #3 favourite, good luck!!!
