I am thrown off by the tangential arangement of two of the three gears. Why did you cut off the one on the bottom? I know this is a minor point, but it just jumped out at me as being unbalanced compositionally. Aside from that, I like the strong light and I like your colors.

You should have found someone who looks like an old jazz hornplayer to hold this like a trumpet....

Good study of light/shadow and textures. The muted colors are very appealing as well. 8.

...just metal ones to rust away. Seriously, nice composition, and good use of darks and lights.

Very good depiction of old metal. Fills the frame perfectly, and there is just enough subdued glint to give it that metallic look.
