            The weld looks O.K. but it's hard to tell if you got proper penetration. Also, why didn't you weld all the way around? To help better critique your welds, I along with several other members (I'm sure) would like to know the material, material thickness, machine, amps, filler and a cut-off side view to see your penetration. Otherwise all we are looking at is a bead. However, you bead looks good but remember, looks are deceiving especially in welding!

            Good luck and hope to see some more!
