    Shot this one earlier today. I am psyched because this is the first weekend that I have not been working on a play. So for the next three weeks you guys are stuck with me posting photos. I enjoy this detail. Let me know what you think.

    Interesting shot - not sure what it's meant to give the viewer though.

    I'm left a little in the dark - possibly a square crop around the gauge might work better?

    Would like to see more though.....

    I know what you mean. I was hoping that the viewer would say " all though I have passed that shot; I never knew it was that interesting". Basically I just love the splash of yellow.

    Since you asked for another... I like the splash of red in this one. Taken during the same day of course.

    I like the first one much better. the second one doesn't realy "talk" to me at all.

    In the first one, I would have liked to see more detail in the gauge and possible more saturation in the yellow. The scratches and detail all around keep me from studying the subject. I would suggest B&W possibly, but that might take away from what your orginal goal was.

    I think it is a nice shot and something most people would not care to notice or even pay attention to.

    Thanks! I opened the gauge in this one. I am afraid BW would not make the cut.
