Thanks for the votes & comments!

The back/rim light is from two or three manual flash pops from different angles behind the pump. The ambient lighting there from the single street lamp was horrible.

Nice control with lighting. Simple but interesting with all the curves and void space.

Nice use of the nighttime lighting. I like the outlined effect that the backlighting gives it.

I love this, one of my top two so far in voting. Great cool steel blues coming from the handle. Fabulous lighting. Will look forward to reading how you set it up.

Very nice lighting!

Simple, and yet elegant. Different to the rest. Seeing something differently to what the others have seen, and then capturing it well.
Control of the lighting would have been a challenge, but you have done that well.
Maybe having the top of the pump where the nozzel goes into the bowser couold have improved, rather than the spot it is here.
