Perfect and another image that tells us a story in print and not words.....

What a rustic rendition and delight for searching eyes. The tonal values are very well controlled and the execution is breathless. certainly a wall hanger.

Nice tonal range and composition. A real rustic (or is it rusty? ;-) look. I like this one!

nicely composed as you've laid out many elements but by keeping the colors all blacks and grays, the elements compliment each other (where they might be fighting for attention otherwise) The wheel gets a litt extra color to help it be the main element. One of my favorites this challenge

Charming and lovely photo. Interesting subject complemented by equally interesting background

Very nice!..Love the muted browns and all the detail to take in!

Very nice tones add to the rustic feel of this image. I like your composition; I see that the vertical part of the axel frame lies pretty well at 1/3 of the image vertically. I think the compostion would be even stronger if you had done the same with the horizontal part of the axel frame and placed it at 1/3 of the image horizontally.

This photo brings a rush of nostalgia to me, it reminds me so much of my grandfathers workshop. The muted colors add tremendously to this feel. I gave only 2 10's in this challenge and this was one of them. I love this photograph and it is one that I would love to have hanging in my den. Thank you for bringing back such warm memories.

very sharp, nice to look at but I keep looking at the ropes coming together, out of the picture. Sorry for my bad english

Awesome tones and rustic feeling here. It's a little busy, but each element seems to have a home. It looks like it is framed wrong though. My eye wants to go to elements that are below or to the right of the frame. Not seeing the whole scene, I do not know if a different angle would help to alleviate this. If this is a cropped version I would LOVE to see the whole thing. If it is not, I would love to see it re-shot so that you have the windows in their entirety and the whole rope triangle going down included in the frame. Lovely spot to study. Hope to see more if possible!

The color, texture and lighting here are just fantastic - well done! 10

The colouring seems perfect for the interior of a wooden structure, and the slightly bleached look of the rope over the pulley is very telling. Considering the narrow range of hues in this shot, it is very interesting indeed.

I like this, not much to add. :)

Wonderful tones and texture with clear focus throughout the frame. One of my favorites.

Nice one! The sombre colours work exceedingly well. And the angle of the shot on the wheel in question is totally spot on, and i love the fact that the wheel is subtlely just a tiny bit more in focus than the rest - i find my eye drawn to it naturally immediately. very classy shot. 9.

Nice light, texture and abstraction. Wish the image took in more up to down, though.
