Don't worry I have plenty more Warbird pics !!!!

Thought I would display another shot from the old Bendigo Goldfields near Cromwell.

This is another old wagon left to wrack and ruin. There are so many old relics lying around the South Island .... one less after I left !!!

PP work done with Topaz Detail 2

Thanks for looking.

Hello Ralph,

Your composition is spot on with this!
The angle of the wheel almost cuts off a strong triangle in the f/g, and the cart is very well placed in the thirds area of the frame. It is sharp and detailed with a gentle blurring towards the b/g.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

hi ralph
a little dark but and excellent perspective shot,has an old west quality about it,Im not sure what type of grass but reminds me of tumbleweed,good close up shot of the wagon and nice view in the distance good bright striking sky.

great POV and great framing on this wrecked wagon. you gave it a very good presentation. i like your pp here, made it look like an HDR while not overdoing it. keep on posting.

Well captured Ralph, the low POV placing the cart into the skyline holds it all together nicely.

Bonjour Ralph
Très bonne composition avec cette vielle charrette témoin d'un autre temps..."que les moins de 20 ans ne peuvent pas connaître"Charles Aznavour...
Cette image me fait vraiment voyager dans une autre époque.
Beaux détails sur ce premier plan et belle atmosphère sur la pampa.Lumière superbe.Bravo Ralph!Catherine

I kinda wish I'd gone to Cromwell - what a location with so many treasures to seduce the passing photographer!

I wonder how long it has been sitting there? It actually seems in pretty good condition, considering!

Good job with the Topaz, the sky expecially is beautifully presented.
