Good DOF, nice Pov, I do like the framing with the bench at the base.

A very good addition to this set Bill, and I like the way you've managed to reproduce classic style mono.

Now when you say Armstrong, do you mean Lance Armstrong? Did he use this to oil his bike and win all those Tour de Frances?

I hope so. 'Cos the only alternative I can think of is Neil Armstrong...and it would be scary to think this oilcan was used on the Apollo lunar module!

Great shot, Bill Grin

This is fantastic Bill, you must tell me your conversion to Black & White secrets! I can never seem to get my B&Ws to look this brilliant. A truly great capture, all credit to you.
kind regards,
Robin
