This blacksmith was in the same shop as the one posted earlier. He is operating a bellows - just off camera -- to increase the heat of his fire.
Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.
A fine capture with that rising smoke..Great details of the anvil...something I have not seen in ages !

great scene. Everything is here to tell us the story, and the picture is good.
I don't know if it was made on purpose or if the low speed is only because of the lack of light, but whatever, I liket he low speed effect on the arm

@Laurent: I accidentally hit on the technique of allowing a little motion blur, and now try to take some still and some with blur.
I like this shot. The smokey atmosphere, the smith's concentration. Great stuff.

I like this capture of the blacksmith active at work. The column of smoke is very attractive and helps make the picture look authentic.

A beautiful composition you've captured that has that Norman Rockwell feel to it!! I love the lighting and textures seen throughout.
