I was going to sit this one out, but inspiration hit just a couple of hours before rollover, when I saw my bike in the corner. Bicycle gears use oil!

Pre-challenge notes:
I think I did pretty darn good for a last minute entry, but only the votes will reveal the popular appeal. Hoping it's good for at least a high 5.

Anticipated critiques
-Focus is just a hair off from the optimum point. Could have been a tad sharper couple of mm back, where the bottle and chain links are.
-Drop should have been a little further down on it's way to the gear. (I tried.)

Post-challenge notes:
Didn't come in quite as high as I had hoped, but after looking at it for a week now, I think it did about right.

What are you lighting this puppy with, as f11 or f16 would have given just enough DOF to help the focus problems. Also what zoom were you on? If you have used the 50mm 1.8 it would sharper than the 28-300 mm and perhps helped the DOF depending on the zoom you used. Those quibbles aside, I really like the composition here. Did you try any shots with the black wire pulled out of view to see if it helped/hurt the composition.
