    Jade - I saw your post b4 editing. So yes, we are very funny guys (some gals but we include them in the guys bit). We are highly skilled; intelligent; gregarious and mostly very good looking. Naturally these qualities vary slightly but the one universal characteristic is our deep humility.

    Really a nice photo for the colours and the lighting. Funny how such a steady hand can mess up a weld! LOL!

    Jade - Much appreciated. To be honest, I did this in such a rush at the last minute, I did not notice the shutter speed. Now I'm amazed too LOL

Thomas - You really don't want any more light on my face :-) Appreciate your comments. The welding did not give off enough light on its own so I stood an LED light just out of the photo to the left. That is why there is too much light on the chest.
I missed my chance here - I should have quoted Ash & their song Burn Baby Burn. "Almost to the point of no return, everything will burn baby burn" (it would have been appropriate for the weld I completed :-D

Franz - Vielen Dank. Glad you liked it.

Old Finn - Many thanks. I also expected more noise from my Panny at 200 ISO but I needed the setting to get a reasonable exposure. I was repairing a metal angle bracket - unfortunately the weld did not look good since I had to keep stopping to re-set the camera.

To explain what I was doing - The welding set is Proylene/Oxygen - I'm holding the torch in my right hand and a flux coated brazing rod in my left.

    This is a great idea too. Well executed in hard lighting conditions. Where is the noise? I looked the picture for a long time trying to find, what you really are doing. My nr 2.

    Would have liked more light on the face, and maybe less on the chest.....still in my votes.

    For a straight up shot, this is wonderfully captured with great use of lighting. Amazing steady hand for 1/5s.
