Morning Bill, two cracking shots, wonderful colours, textures and both beautifully captured, for me I think it has to be V1, but only by a whisker.

Yum! Lovely bunch of rust, light and textures here Bill. Think V2 for me as I want to get my hands on it and pick at it a bit! Wink

Morning Bill . Still glorious weather.

Your rope looks so new compared to the rust and peeling paint of your first photo Bill. I really like the old cartwheel though,you cropped it so well. xxx

Even the rust looks rusty in V2 Bill Smile, excellent textures/tones captured in both,

A nicely juxtaposed pair of pics. I think V2 has the vote, but would it have been so 'good' without V1?

That tractor wheel just oozes of grottiness Bill,and interesting it is with the G10 too !! It has had some pounding with salt and sea air to get into this state.Also interesting to see for once they have used a proper primer rust paint.It is not flaking from the top as you normally see,but the blistering is caused by the corroding metal underneath bursting out to the surface.Surprising to see the little plastic nipple (well,thats what I call them ),so pristine looking.There has obviously been a distinct lack of handling in that department !!
Now and again I see a bit of rust I can read like a book.This is an example here.
Excellent stuff.
Mick.

Like the contrast of colours, and the lighting really brings out the textures, especially in V2.

I never knew there was so much to learn about rust, but Mick has opened my eyes. V2 is definitely my favourite, especially for the composition.

Nice contrast of texture between plastic and metal. Bill and Moira perhaps ?

You're almost guaranteed some serious hits, if you include rust.

More brown, I'd have thought, than red though? Smile

Watcha Bill,
excellent stuff, V2, except when I see V1, then it's V1Smile no, it's definitely V2, V1 has nice chunky, simple shapes and textures, but V2 has more to explore. Hey, I'm a poet, hope I don't blow it.
best

V2 for the grottiness and wonderful textures, not to mention the compo. V1 for that yellow!

V1 is a hard act to follow - but in this case some strong competition from V2. By going in close to record the fine detail works a real treat for me in both shots. Smashing.
