While up in Dawson City I took a tour of a huge gold dredge which was last used in the early 20th century. The posibilities for photographing old rusty gears and equpiment were endless. Here are just a few pics... I ended up taking over 200 8)

I think you might have been better served by bumping up the ISO speed and not resorting to using a flash. Currently, your photos all look a little washed out and that reduces their impact somewhat.

If you really need to flash, you could try placing a thin sheet of tissue paper over your flash to act as a diffuser. I used to do that with my camera's popup flash and that really helped provide better lighting. And it was cheap too! :D
