A terrific capture, Usman. Both you and your subject are gifted! The composition, DOF, lighting, sharpness and details are excellent.

While I like both, I especially like the close up of the hands and the object of his work because the focus of the story.

This is excellent in black and white. Very well done!

I think your creation will be a winner!
