This morning I was down on the waterfront at Rose's Marine in Gloucester for the launch of the city's new launch. As I was walking down to the event I couldn't help but notice this welder working on the hull of a fishing boat up on dry dock after two years in the water. This image has a nice simplicity about it that drew me to it. I have been looking for images with strong design elements and this fits the bill. The white line leads you into the bright light of the torch or the other way around the torch draws you in and the white line takes you out. But it's fun also to look at all the other details in the image. The bait buckets, the lift etc.
I made this shot using my Canon 7D with the 70-200 f2.8 at ISO 400. The exposure was 1/400 sec at 6.3.
