Greetings from the Critique Club, Jamie!

What a perfect post-processing job you've done here! I love the sepia you've used and the heavy contrast and noise to show old ways and age.

The details you've shown and the crop you've chosen pull the viewer into the scene and make us feel as if we truly are in another time.

I'm not sure I like the heavy light in the left... it competes with what you're showing the viewer and distracts from the subject, in my opinion. Hold your hand over the left side of the image here on your monitor. Doesn't the lack of the bright spot draw you into the subject more?

A simple crop off the left would solve that.

I also would have made the focus on the fabulous curve of numbers instead of that one screw in the foreground (or I'd have blurred the screw in post processing a bit).

I do love seeing the metalwork details.

I wish you'd entered this image in "Old Ways" challenge that was a month or so ago. I think it would have done very well.

I hope to see your images more often in 2016, Jamie! You have a great talent.

I like the buttons a lot. Not sure that front edge added much to the image for me, but overall I still really like this.

Is the subliminal suggestion working?
