    Hay Baler

    What does one do when they see an old hay baler and all they have is a macro lens?

    The first one is fantastic Randy. Very interesting geometry and textures. The combination of colors works very well.

    Here are some thoughts:

    - the intense highlights are a problem to my eye. Have you tried to deal with it in PP? I think you loose some of the rusty texture details.

    - I would prefer a symmetry to the composition. We don't see the edge of the left "pipe".3

    - A focus stack could improve the DoF although I like the lens blur on the top.

    I also like #2, #3 & #4 are not that interesting for me.

    Keep observing the world around you.
    And alway carry a macro lens with you...

    They step back to get a full-size shot.

    Nice shots btw.

    The full shot really wasn't that appealing
