Making Use of the Old

By REnsor
Trying to get an image of something old for the local club shoot and found this abandoned birds nest on an old trucks steering wheel. Shot a lot of images of it trying to get the nest in context, but I think this is about my best. Would love comments. Thanks.

What an unusual place to a bird to build a nest. I like the shot, the cob/spider web. I bet this would make a pretty good B/W. I can't help but think something is missing, it could be the abandond feeling of the nest....KevBK

I think you have gone a bit too close on this and it is difficult to establish the context. If you hadn't said it was in a steering wheel I wouldn't have guessed.

If you had used a wide angle lens we could get a sense of the truck cab rather than just the nest.

Thanks for the reply guys, I will give it a go in B&W when the time allows. I did try to get a wider veiw but the light at the time burned out the nest and some of the truck floor, I'm going back this weekend in the morning to see if I can improve on it.

Thanks again
