Drive gears on an antique grain separator.

Pre-challenge notes:
Hoping for a high 5 from this, but it may or may not have enough wow to get there. Voting in the open challenges has been pretty hard of late, so I don't expect much.

Anticipated critiques:
-The speckled texture on the left gear may be perceived as noise or some low quality artifact.
-Someone may not see how the rule of thirds was used in this image.

Post-challenge notes:
Did about as expected. Several of the comments mentioned that my application of the rule of thirds was subtle. I'm glad it was recognized, as I had expected that by not putting the subject on a set of crosshairs, that it may have been low voted DNMC. Here is an explanation of how it applies:

One of my favorites. Is the yellow color residual grain or some sort of protective coating on the gears? Whatever.... it provides a great contrast to darker colors of the gears and background.

I don't think your gears are meshing very tightly.
