Welcome to EPZ Fred. It's a great community, which I am finding very helpful and friendly. I hope you do too.

Interesting, well composed shot of a fascinating subject. Good sharp focus. I think you will find that you would get a better shot on a slow speed without the flash. You could also up the ISO a bit.

Hope you find this helpful,

James

Thanks all for your praise.
Hi James,
Thanks for your comment and advice. Indeed it might be a good idea to try a lower speed next time (without flash). A don't see how a higher ISO could improve the image, could you explain that to me.
Regards,
fred

I know assendelft you like criticism as you are not an e2 member you can invite criticism once a week. But i can give you some help although it is not needed to you. First to start with you have got my vote as it is a beautiful picture.and now come to criticism:-

1. what you have described to this picture the small wheel or the big wheel or both?

2. If small wheel, then you could do it better by giving a large aperture opening or smaller f number and the focus point should be at the small wheel leaving the blurred big wheel at the back ground.

3. If big wheel, then you could have used the light at the big wheel and also the focus by setting a hyper focal view so that the small wheel became blurred or may be simply cut out.

4. If both, then a small aperture opening or large f number with an off camera flash covering the full area.

5. you have used here in camera flash and the effect of it you can see here that the nearer object becomes more sharp and the far away objects become darker.

6.If you have tried to describe the joint, then off camera flash and soft light could have given better result.


thanks,
somnath

Hi fred,
The upping of the ISO won't improve the picture per se, but it will enable you to shoot at a higher speed, which can be useful in low light and will help you if you are hand held.

Hi James, I have never thanked you for your advice, an omission I try to make good now: THANKS. Good idea, I have already tried it and it works. Super,

fred
