I am in the process of building a special road cycle for my better half, Cross between a road bike and a hybrid,(straight bar race bike) anyway bought this special triple chainset and whilst still shiney and new decided they should have their photo taken.
Arranged on a silvered card sheet, natural light, hand held, close focus and cropped.
The colours in the background courtesy of a large painting on the wall reflected in the silvered card.

I especially like the contrast between the bike parts and the colors of the background painting which serves to make the bike parts stand out strongly in the image while at the same time creating a reflective feel in the picture. The grainy feel of the bike parts adds further to the visual appeal of the image.

Amazing textural heavy metal image. A keeper for me. Although after studying all day I can not quite figure out how it works works.

Well captured and presented. I like the subject matter, colors, detail and lighting.

It took me a few looks to separate the reflection from the crank itself, and I know what it's supposed to look like. Still, I like the texture. Some of the teeth appear to have bends in them. I've not seen that before. Must be some feature to keep the chain on?

This is magnificent. Love the toning and the graininess. The bottom left edge fades with a rippling effect like it was dipping under water. Would love to know how you achieved this magical effect.
