Cog Weels
Lens: Pentax 18-55mm WR Lens Camera: Pentax K-01 

I spotted these old cog wheels at an estate sale. They had a cool, yet nostalgic look, so I took a picture with my Pentax K-01. Afterwards, I thought it would look neat to turn it into a "digital" sepia tone using photoshop. Otherwise, no other manipulation. Hope it's well received and I win a new camera!

Wish the camera would have been more aligned straighter over the cogwheels.. but otherwise I like it. Sepia works here. I like the complexity of the wheels individually forming something larger. The angle the main set make upwards might have been just the way it was, but it sets the scene pretty well and moves the eye through it.

I'm nominating.

I feel like the compostion here fails a bit - it should either focus the viewer on the cogwheels which are dominant part of this photo in the amount - but sadly that tiny box is adding some distraction and draws the eye away from the expected subject. Also the sharpness has escaped a bit which is a major thing for a shot like this. On the other hand I like the processing you've chosen and also the exposure seems to be spot on.
Best of luck !

Looks very post-apocalyptic, reminds me of some old computer games
