I am very surprised at the score for this one. I am a mechanic but this was not taken at work, rather my friends garage. We were struggling with the top bolt on the bell housing during the clutch replacement. So I had a little time to snap this, get my camera full of oil and then get back to work. Thank you all for the comments.

Cool shot. I think the black and white shows good detail on something like this with the engine.

The b/w is effective in this shot. Makes it look almost vintage, and I like it.

Great picture...but seems a little flat? I'd prefer to see some more contrast between the shadows and highlights.

Great BW image. Reminds me of my son; old cars and grease, lol.

I like the effect that B/W has on this photo - there is enough light to show the details without blowing it out. 6

I always wondered if grease monkeys fling their poop into the engine compartment.
