Is your neighbour making some sort of statement about your penchant for photographing rust, Mick?
What a spoilsport!

Your neighbour is a cheeky sod. I bet he cleans the rust of when he sees you coming out with the camera. Try a false beard Smile

As it has rained another 5 inches today (including hailstorms) I am very optimistic regarding future rust, Will take your hint.

We live in a throw away society Mick - perhaps he thought he was preserving the lock by doing this - at least he hadn't replaced it by another pristine lock - still, you got a tad of red here and there on it, so that's not so bad. SmileSmile

I'm somewhat surprised that this shot obtains so much pristine metal. Nice POV and imposition though.

And your neighbour.

Your neighbours really have no consideration of your needs, do they, Mick?
They have merely left you a few grot-spots.
Excellent focus, depth and composition, even though you're more interested in decomposition Smile
Nice one.

I do like the G11's close focussing and you've used it to great effect here.
I'm surprised you don't carry around a small bag of rust with you - just in case. Wink

I think most of the above people forgot to mention
the planning that went into this
the excellent composition
waiting for just the perfect light
Your depth of field for clarity
Your mixing and blending of colour
In truth an outstanding image of the highest quality which would not surprise me if it was awarded the editors choice.

Ha ha, what an inconsiderate Neighbour you have Mick. But a great larger than large shot here anyway. Might be worth returning when He gets fed up with cleaning it Wink

We have a brass Master lock on our woodshed, it supposedly had a stainless hasp but it seams to have rusted all the same. Lovely close focus shot Mick.

The tightwad buys cheap tat and it begins to rust immediately. Good of him to (unwittingly) support your habit, Mick. Had he bought qwuality you would have been waiting years for the first signs of "patina".

Super close up.. With pin sharp detailing.. One of your best..

I think the neighbour needs to realise just who and how many fans as well as you he is upsetting with his scrubbing,,the cheek,regardless of it being his garden,,

Big and bold,,nice one Mick.

Nice'n shiny and a bit of rust - you mastered it well. Smile
