Very special. A different type of wheel.

THis shot makes me wonder how these obviously once useful wheels came to be in this state. How were they used. Were they for grinding? What did they grind. How many people were fed with the assistance of these wheels. I wish I could see more of the area around the wheels. Are they still of use today? Are they holding up the bank of a river? It would be kind of sad to go from a very important job (feeding the people) to something unappreciated...

Very clever (choice for the challenge, and recycling idea.) Colors are very well done here. Send your landscaper my way? -7

Interesting. Good composition, good photography. I especially like that these are not your average wheels. Keep up the good work. 10

Nice diagonal composition. Textures are superb. If possible a bit more stopped down would remove the softer focus on the right side.

Good stuff. like the antique wagon wheel, I'd like more depth of focus to see all three wheels
