Love the rust on the sides with the shiny cogs. Nice contrast in age.

You find the most interesting things to photograph. This is something I would never have thought of. That is why it takes years of experience to make a great photographer, as well as the talent. You my friend, are among the greats.

Good morning Robert
These teeth look barely worn. This, for me, is almost a remember when image. Remember sitting on the milling machine and the shaping machine many (many) years ago cutting these type of teeth for new cogs to repair old machinery in a large wire products factory. Never did get the hang of the math, someone else used to have to do that part. Beautifully captured, expresses the hard working nature of this machine.

I'm with Romane about the "Remember When" thing. It would make a good Wazza too. Wazza new gear once. You got some serious lighting on this, and it looks really cool. I thought from the thumbnail that it was a compu-gen plastic zipper, but the realitiy is so much more interesting. Likewise your choice of colors for the matt is excellent, and really brings out the grey shades on the side of the gear.

You gotta wonder about the man who cast this gear .... whether when he made it if he thought it's use would outlast his own.

Excellent capture Bob. Great choice of colour from the image for the matte.

75C-index? Gimme a break, this is a pro level image in every respect. The framing and exposure, tonal contrasts and subtle colors are topnotch.

i believe that would be a gear, not a pulley, but its still an amazing photo. the only problem i have is the colour of the mat you chose, maybe a dark red from the photo would have fit better? i think the photo is more about the rust reds, so the blue backgroud just brings out the blues instead of reds in the picture, which doesnt really work, in my opinion, but the photo is awesome
