Some lovely rich colours and textures in these rusting implements, Bill, the side lighting from the sun enhancing so much detail and creating string Saturday shadows.

A lot of us are hooked on rust, Bill, and these prize gems are being overlooked by the wood panel eyes. Lovely tones and textures.

Very well done Bill, great to see the textures working so well on what is only a one colour image. Great stuff.

A superb study of rust and shadows Bill, the rich rust colours and textures are terrific. I hope Mikbee is ok as he has been rather quiet lately
