this is a powerful shot. if the rule of thirds was applied here, i think it would have been a bit better.

Nice and dirty :)

Very strong composition and lighting, good choice to use B&W. Convincing photo, well done.

Clear in places.

nice lowkey capture. the dirty hand fits excellently into the picture

A closer crop of some of the sprockets may have been better

wow nice... wish it was more related to bicycles, but i guess it is.

Now here is something different. Good job with the black and white showing just how greasy and grimy the rear sprocket can be.

Interesting image. I like the concept and the composition. The only thing i would do is make the fingers a little bit more clear.
