    Some pics of an old wagon wheel propped up against the side of a barn. Bad lighting conditions at the time though, almost noon.

    I LIKE IT! Perhaps (and I stress perhaps) just a little subtle manipulation of brightness and contrast to reduce the absolute blacks and whites a little? I'm not sure if it would help or not.

    Thanks for all the comments!
    Tirediron: Yeah, I tend to do that when I play with the levels too much and blow out the whites on my quests for contrasty black & white :blushing:

    I always remember my grandma's place when I see wagon wheels. She had somewhat of a circle drive for her driveway and at each end was a pair of, all I remember is they were huge for when I was a kid, wheels guarding. The white paint was somewhat chipping but the black and white contrast was definitely there. After she died, we took a smaller wheel she had, probably four foot if even, and had it lean against a paper birch at our house. Great shot of some "old time" memorabilia.
