But think I would have put over some grass on that little bit of black on the bottom left ...it just niggles me ... no photographic reason Smile

like the idea of putting out of focus the cause of the shadow.

well seen and taken, Bill

You seem things where many would keep walking, no bad thing in my opinion.

A rather lethal looking shadow Bill.Should fit in nicely for the Bondage Division category !! Like how you have made the shadow a feature and went for the out of focus rust.I would not have had the will power to do this.I wonder if you can get rust patches to put on your arms ?

Well spotted and captured, Bill. I'd have boringly shot the rusty bit in focus, but this works well, and concentrates the eye on the shadow.

Well spotted Bill, I could say an awful lot about this one but I am going to refrain from doing so, it might get banned, its the reflection that does it

Well composed Bill and, as others have said, I like the way you have focused on the shadow. Interesting shot which I like very much.
