58th place
This geologist was painstakingly carving out a small mammal jaw from rock millions of years old with tiny dremel bits at the Houston Museum of Natural History. It was sort of just a snapshot, but I did some burning and dodging in Lightroom to emphasize the hands more and push his face back as a secondary focal point. Originally everything was fairly evenly lit.
