Just this one shot taken. Only colour and sharpening post processing (yes, the sparks are original and not photoshopped). The blacksmith spat on the anvil, took a red hot iron rod and hit it with a hammer. I didn't know that this would result in a loud bang and all I did, was press the button at the exact right moment capturing these wonderful sparks.
