A little example here as to why I like rust.
I just believe some things look a bit dull and colourless without it !!

I don't hold with this five-rings lark, Mick.
Ultimately the ring that matters is the ring on the doorbell from the men in white coats Smile
I do rather like your composition, the cracked paving and the algae and the one-with-one-without set-up. A Stevie Wonder for our times?????!!!!!

Bill

P.S.: In view of the severe admonishment administered last week I thought I ought to warn you that I had planned to post another picture from Fairfield Church in Kent next Friday that includes three of those white fluffies whose identity we disputed recently. Since I took the photo before you drew my attention to the small print of paragraph 3b of Rule 1 (of which I did not have a copy, as previously explained) I hope my action might be sanctioned so long as I promise not to do it again . . .

Although I bet Olympians would rather grab on to Roman rings like the one on the right Wink

The one on the right is far superior and adds a great deal to the image whilst the rusty one does need to be cleaned up a bit. That floor is a bit dirty and cracked. You could so easily rectify this is ps6 or some other editing suite..... Go on ..you know you want to.
