Rusty steel wheel, drawn to industrial decay at the moment for some reason, in color this is gritty and very very red - yet with the lomo effect applied it gets an amazing depth and contrast.


Yes im happy with this, I actually really like it but that poses a problem. Ive had issues with many people being unable to grasp concepts such as darkness and shadow in images and it makes me hesitant to post it here and here comments about it being 'dark'


So Im going to be upfront. This image is MEANT to be dark, its part of the effect of this type of image., its intentional and please dont comment that you dont like it cause its dark because thats missing the whole point.


If you are not sure about light in photography I encourage people to seek out some information and read about the uses of contrast and shadow in images - there is a whole world out there which begs to be discovered and explored.


PS this image works best LARGE.
