    Hammering Away

    Another revisited shot which I've processed tonight. This must be mind numbing work...!

    Nice conversion, Phil. It is great the way it is although I like a bit of a crop losing some of the top as well. Nice work.

    That right forearm and hand are simply amazing. The left lower corner towards right upper diagonal took me right there - the eye moves on to the impressive face, but returns to wonder at this man's ancient noble tool (his arm).

    I'm not sure about mind-numbing. Sameness and repetition, the chop-wood-carry-water stuff, may not be as "mind numbing" as the constant search for new stimuli that preoccupies the modern masses with their downward faces and busy thumbs. This image reminds us of the potential truth of that view.

    I think this is just great. I am glad to have seen this, and been made to think by it. You did very well by me, Phil.
