NOT trying for a "natural" look, just suiting my own taste.
The old abandoned equipment is fun for this kind of look.

They had a lot of faith in wood and a few nails.


End of a beam supporting a spool of cable.


Shed wall made from scraps.


A hole in the board.

The HDR look and processing you did on these is great.

Very nice series. The first two turn a lot of wheels and pull some serious cable for me.

Thanks for the comments. This old stuff is fun to look at closer. The longer I look, the I see. I'm always surprised what they were able to with wood 100 years ago. I guess carpenters were pretty important!

The first image shows a lot of what you are talking about. It was a lot easier to make something like that with wood than manufacture a part in metal. Good eye and good shootin...

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it is like a disease.

Software: Too numerous to list but my most used utility is ShiftN for perspective correction

Gear: Canon G12, no tripod, no lenses, no flash, no remote, no cases or bags!
