This kind of boldness seldom fails and it works a real treat here : just enough detail to support the oomph of that color !

Giovanni from Milan, Italy

What I like is how much this looks like a kind of industrial flower. Hadn't thought of it except that your lens showed me. Thanks.

28 Sep 2008 9:29am

@GJC: I thought the same, but didn't quite know how to put it into words. You did it for me. Thanks. :-)

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

It's an explosion of color!

LOVE the color, and that it's a tractor wheel. Will we see more tractors? Beautiful composition, very well done!

28 Sep 2008 10:16am

@Betty: Thanks, Betty. No more tractors. The other tractor photos I took didn't turn out so well.

At first sight it's quite a different subject from your mainly preferences. Indeed it has these bright colours in common with your flowers.

28 Sep 2008 10:53am

@António Pires: Thanks, Antonio. I thought so too.

Sue from United States

Bold. Graphic. Colorful. I can visualize this piece framed and hanging in an office or loft apartment. Cool!

Chris from New Jersey, United States

Well, you did wonderfully in capturing this tractor wheel. I love the composition and the bright colors. I hope you had fun shooting tractors at the fair - that is definately a great place to try and capture them.

@Chris: This in the only image I like from my fair photos. I didn't spend much time at it, but, am encouraged to try more next time.

Ed Heaton from United States

Great job Anita! I like how you shifted gears from the flowers. I love the colors and it's nicely composed. My only thought would be to include the bottom bolt that was cut off. (Maybe a half an inch more... )

29 Sep 2008 4:15pm

@Ed Heaton: I completely agree about the bolt. Unfortunately, I didi not take a photo that included it. :-(

Yellow and red together are a favorite color combination. Love this old find and how you filled the frame with it.
