Wondered what you might think of this? While I was out trying to find something for On Assignment..(empty again)..found these old wooden spoke wheels...

Hey patti

i like the shadows on the background. what aperture did you use? the rust and old wood looks great, creates soft colors.

the title of the thread suits your image quite well :wink:

yeah i agree with Big Pix.. this would look really awesome if it was darker and had just a little light shining onto the wheels.. so more underexposed.. but not to say its not a good picture, great composition it could just be a tad better lit but still good dont get me wrong lol :D

cool shot Patti. How bizzare I took a similar shot a couple fo days ago of a pile of old saddles, very similar in colours.

I like the wheels fine how they are but I do agree that a little tweek around the wheels would bring them out lookin like new.

Cheers Ormina

Hey patti,

I like your shot - it's a good composition and good depth of field, rendering the rear wheel just a little fuzzy.

The colors are true t the weathering these wheels have seen.

"Grunging it up" could certainly render a more "dramatic" image for you, if you wanted to see what that would be like. Sepia-fying it would also complement your great coqboy and horse shot from earlier :-)

However, I like it the way it is. There is a certain quiet "mood" to it. I wonder how it would look in more contrasty B&W? Daguerro-type or Noire type, I'm thinking.

Nice shot patti!

Cheers :-)
