    I love centered images, as well. While I think the ROT works in most instances, sometimes you just want it smack dab in the middle!

    You've combined some of my favorite things in a photo! Rust, metal, spokes, gear teeth and rivets...what more could a gal want!? :lol:

    Very dynamic! And the "Rule of Centre" works fine here. That was just the rule to go by for this particular photo. I also really like the colours.

    Looks almost like clock innards with all the gear teeth. I just wanted to say I liked the image and I agree that rules are sometimes better to be broken.

    Well, no I am not, as a matter of fact...but I intend on staying that way--long, tedious story. :sexywink: I make a great pen-pal though.

    That vehicle is about the craziest thing I've ever seen and I want it for a garden ornament really bad! :drool:

    I love rusty things!

    Cool Image, this one works well centered. I love the color and rust as well especially juxtaposed with the clean straight lines of the "spokes".

    Side note: I thought there was almost a TPF love connection on this thread.;)

    Really nice photo. Only problem is that we now have a lot of confused n00bs on our hands, hehehe.

    Anyone else just a *little* disappointed our potential TPF match-up didn't go off? Shame on you for being such a tease, Sojourn. Posting rusty stuff, saying his photo has some of your favorite things... tsk tsk tsk. I would have asked too, if I were him. :sexywink:
