    I like it but in B&W it just looks dirty. A slightly larger DOF might have helped so that more was in focus than the tiny section of the bolt. Even parts of that seem soft.

    I'll see if I can get back there and get a shot with a little bit more DOF. Maybe some off camera flash to get more detail too. I think that was the best composition in the area, but sunrise or sunset, that portion is in some kind of shadow, so I think the flash might help.

    Nice composition Matt. I like these shallow DoF images. I'm always on the fence regarding what aperture to end up with, and shoot a few at each.

    Oh, one of those tiny maglites in your kit bag is handy for the odd angle illumination sometimes. When converting to b/w, its colour temperature doesn't need to match the ambient light. Or picking up the odd bit of light coloured trash to act as a reflector. Had a friend once bounce light into some shadows using an aluminum soda can. :)
