Took a second to figure out - an Archimedes screw. Used to lift or move all sorts of material - in my experience, coal at high rates. A decent record but the tonal range has beat you a bit - some small areas very burnt out.

Not easy to light as flash would have overdone the foreground. Possibly a couple of stops less, then lighten the shadows with the dodge tool.

Still, interesting.

Its an interesting subject, - and like Paul, it took me a minute to see the screw.

It blends into the shot due to the overall greyness, and can stand out better with some adjustments of contrast, highlights (very bright in the wall at the left) and sharpening.

I would also this the use of a smaller aperture (larger number) would have got more of the screw in focus, - but the available light may have been too low for this.

Ive loaded a mod with all of the above, in addition to a rather severe crop to bring attention to the subject.


Hope this is helpful,


Regards


Willie
