A most pleasing composition, the kind of arrangement that I can study for hours. The tones are very good indeed, suggesting 'used with tlc' rather than 'concours d'élégance'.
Lovely work, Ronnie.

Well thought out composition again, Ronnie, the lettering in the bottom left anchors the image and the main 'downpipe' sits nicely on the 'third'. Exposure is spot on ensuring the shiny highlights are not burnt out.

Very attractive, the polished brass pipes gave you a distinctive abstract pattern against the dark background.

That detail is perfection Ronnie. I'm sure if needed that section of the machinery could be rebuilt by studying this image.

A plumber's dream! You have recorded the metal colours and the dark parts equally well, not an easy task to achieve.
Wish the vehicles I crawl under we're as clean !

I passed through Loch Lomond on my return journey to Cardiff from Glencoe last night and shouted a greeting - hope you heard it Grin I like these detail shots and this is a fine example, Ronnie
