Whatever your reservations about this piece if kit, you have captured it with some amazing detail, Mick. That G11 is certainly proving its worth for this type of shot. The detail, colours and textures are all so well recorded.

What a superb image Mick great colours and textures, I have to agree with your reservations, I dont think I would fancy standing under what ever it was supporting.

Great detail as always. Had me fooled until I read your summary. I thought it was something to do with the Scottish Gas Board.

SGB was the company that hire out this equipment Rob,and they have been taken over by a company called Harsco.Not much point in changing the lettering in the older equipment I suppose !!

Nice one! I think I would trust it, the way I look I don't think it would matter if it collapsed! lol. Great rusty textures, that's the subject that grabs me.

Great detailed shot! Well done.

I agree - top detail in this Mike - as for car jacks, I've never needed one, I drive Ford !...Bill

Like the title Mick. Agree with whats been said above plus the diagonal format really suits the shape of the jacking piece.

Looks like a sword hilt to me, a rusty Excalibur. So where's your Lady of the Rusty Lake going to rise up?

I always worked under my car using only the jack - we couldn't afford the bricks. But nowadays I need something like this metal prop to support my camera bag while I'm using the Emergency Lumix Wink

This is extreemly well photographed Mike. The detail and tones are spot on. The clarity is wonderful and the exposure is great. Please except my award of the week. Well done

Superb image, great detail and fantastic colours. Well taken.

Acro props alsways good for rust and grot and most often caked on cement where they have been maintained so well.
Not me with the jacks mate, always favoured the option of getting some other mug underneath the motor whilst its balanced up in the air.
Nice shot, all that is missing is the obligatory builders bum.

I wouldn't want to be under it or on it either. Judging by the cobwebs and orange stuff not sure how well maintained it'd be! Well spotted Mick, I enjoy the textures and diagonal compo.

Good textural study Mick, like the angle.
30 Sep 2010 5:24PM
Love the angle, colour and detail Mick, and yes, i remember the trusty Acro from my building site Days, and sometimes they look VERY dodgy when extented full stroke.

Great stuff mate.
