Experience.. 40 years behind the saw.. 6 months behind the camera so what you see is a view of "my world" from a working woodshop as it exist. Camera set for 10 second delay.. squeeze shutter and run around the saw to assume proper position with push stick for the end result. Saturation..? check the WD 40 can right if my left elbow (your right)as everyone should be familar with the color of it. Glow to left of my right elbow..? A black with gold reflective letter sign I store behind the clamps which glows in light. No apologies for my decor as it is a working woodshop and not a showroom for tools. :)

Would have like to seen your Face also in the Image. 10 for the Processing alone. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is that BLOOD on your Apron?

Huge composition, properly processed, it must have been difficult to press the shutter button with these gloves! If blood on her apron, would be a butcher, I think it's paint. Otherwise paint, Johnt could be a serial murderer!

@Digi... don't want to reveal the true idenity of the Ripper.. my cousin Jack has kept people guessing for years. haha

Not blood for the most part.. red sedona oil stain along with spatters of many others. I do wipe blood on the lower portion before I apply super glue as I nick and cut my hands daily. Just a fact of woodworking.. :)

@Ricardo.. the righ glove got put on the fly around the table b-4 picking up the push stick. Several practice runs with a final 6 sec. time range to get in place before the 10 sec. shutter fired. Yeah.. it was a pain. :)

Another great one John. It looks like you have quite a shop there.

Hey John, your saw looks as (clean) Xerox machine.

Thanks to those that took their time to generously grade my photo. The rookie is still figuring out how 9 votes shows 11 and nine ten votes averages to 9.9.. Must be "new math". :)
