Makes the eyes water.

Of course your processing is perfect, showing all the different textures to advantage,
but I'm particularly struck by the way you've picked up the sheen on the metal, the way the light reflects.
It's very.... metallic.
I recall how, years ago, I was auditioning some very expensive hi-fi equipment, and was very taken with the way it revealed the sound of cymbals as being very distinctly hard metal. That's rather how this photograph feels.

Looking at this image and your other images I would say you rely heavily on silver efex pro !! There is no great skill using a plug in on photoshop . But on a positive note good composition.

A great piece of Mono work bill, and it's the angle of the dangle that really makes this one for me.
