In Decline

By richard193
This fly-wheel caught my eye when visiting Beamish Museum, Durham. The geometric shapes of the abadoned ironwork slowly being taken over by some of natures smallest plants.

I think your idea of the abandoned metalwork being overtaken by lichens etc comes across well. The textures and colours of the metal and the lichens are interesting.

I just wonder about the composition though. Sure, there are some interesting shapes here but quite a lot of the picture is looking through the spaces to a blurred background where not much is happening. I'm just wondering whether it would be better to include a bit more of the wheel and less of the spaces. Just a thought.

Nice idea but I find the bit of blank sky distracting - see upload.
