I shot this on a rainy day holding a polarizer and two stop neutral density filter in front of the lens in order to get a long enough exposure to show the motion of the wheel.

I do love the mighty ones, and I like the motion in this one.

Very nice picture - I like the motion in the wheel showing that it is going around. The focus seems a bit off on the building.

nice composition, digital noise or something detracts

this could use a little more contrast I bet. but I like the long exposure time.

This looks like it was an old shot redone or something, it looks a little out of focus but i like it nonetheless.

THe red casting on the fence rail and the rest of the picture is a bit distracting.....

You boosted the red right? Makes the wood on the rail look unnatural.

a tab bit out of focus with some grain in the image, giving it an overexposed feeling. Try neatimage!

Looks like too much digital zoom,photo is noisy and pixelated,but nice action on the wheel,6.

The long exposure really makes this interesting.

The composition is balanced. What seems to be an overdone red saturation gives the image a red cast and takes away from the image's overall appeal. Using curves or brightness and contrast may have helped to give the image more impact as well. 5

I'ts interesting. Just a slight perspective change may pull together the top right window and the hub of the wheel

I really like the composition and colors in this but it seems a little fuzzy.

Overall, nice. But...the fence takes on too much tint and contrast is somewhat lacking.

Love the historical feel

if overshot, shouldn't we see the water? looks like an undershot wheel to me. too blurry - makes the wheel appear to be turning too fast for reality. the fence rails have red on them, an unatural appearing red
