Here is a 25 cent ride for children. I had gone down to "The Lake" to snoop around a bit. I haven't been down there in ages. Came across some old abandoned relicts from 20 years ago and couldn't believe that old rides as this was still around and decaying. It was kinda like a grave yard of sorts. However, I came across this old 25 cent ride and it had became worn and vines growing around it. Thought it would work for the wheel challenge.

I had adjusted the color in auto, convert to Grayscale and applied a duo-tone, applied curves, unsharp mask, crop, and resized.

the white wire is distracting. if you could have moved it, I would have. Otherwise, nice shot

overall, very attractive. good textures. The object in the top middle is very distracting and spoils it a bit.

The branch at the top is a little distracting, but great picture

Not enough contrast between the tire and the shadows behind it.

I like this photo because it is not just showing a wheel but a little more like the steps.

Nice. I love the vine dropping from the center and the definition of the wheel. IMO - needs a bit more light.

Nice composition & tones, althou I'd like ot see a little more detail in the top of the wheel and maybe even a touch inside the fender well -- it's a lot of black.
