    I would like to see the whole thing, but thats my opinion. I have recently taken some of fire hydrants myself and an old fire engine tires.

    I think perhaps you have cropped in too tightly--the top of the hydrant is clipped off, as is the chain at the bottom,and the entire right hand side is also clipped...I think the poster above has it right; I took would like to see more of the hydrant. Also, that light at the top left corner of the frame is creating considerable visual "pull". I "get" the idea that the hydrant is being lighted at night by a street lamp, but with the hydrant itself not shown in full, the composition seems a bit weaker than maybe it could be.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm going to retake it with that in mind and see if I can improve it.

    Interesting processing, however the background seems to be a bit distracting, maybe a shallow dof would have helped.
