I love rusty old mechanical stuff. This bike has been slowly rotting on the bike rack outside my building all year. The afternoon light was really nice when I took this shot. I shot it at f/8 because I knew that at this close distance it would give me a bit more depth of field and would really make the detail pop. I processed my RAW file in Adobe Lightroom using the Direct Positive preset. The only other thing I did was bump up the Recovery a bit to bring a little more detail back into the highlight areas.
