[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a close up on a very special piece of art I found on a trip through Horneburg in northern Germany. The artist put it in his garden. As he was present when I was there on my way by, he showed me around an I saw many more interesting things in his garden and behind his house. Whatever he finds - screws, horse shoes, gears - he makes a piece of art out of it. He showed me several collections of clocks, cameras... The gears I show you here belong to a sculpture of an unbelievable size. I thought this interesting enough to show it here.
Post processing: cropped the image and lightened it up

Hello Britta,

I like the composition a lot - it offers a lot of possibilities. A bit of advice: with such a topic, it's always good to concentrate on a focal point somewhere in the photo. This photo is missing a bit of focus (and sharpness). The lighting is good.
I may go for a bigger crop, to remove distracting points and emphasize the focal point of the image.

Hope my advice helped a bit :]

Kind greetz,


PS: Keep on shooting! Hope to see more of you.

I like the compo you used here, Britta - even though it doesn't reveal the size of the work, but then it would be an entirely different shot.
Exposure and reflections are well handled, there's some excellent details to be spotted - like the rust on the big wheel, which is covered with paint but makes some "blobs" appear...
