My friend Carl can't understand it when I crouch down close to something like this and take a photograph of it, but I think this is what separates photographers from snap-takers: spotting the little things, the details. I really like this Ellie. Lovely work.
I couldn't imagine what this was from the thumbnails. At first I thought it was a long legged bird. Nice clarity and colour
Ah, I've heard the terms but had no idea what they were...block and tackle. Thanks for sharing, Ellie. This is nice.

You have a perfect crop on this, Ellie, for your subject. The light and shadows play well with the lines and colors. This is a pic you stare at to get your education about something you almost never see. Well, I guess I should speak for myself!
I like this as is, Ellie, but I think this might be stronger if you cropped just on the bottom part. It has a cleaner background and the details of the ropes and the pulley would be more visible. Of course I have a strong weakness for detail shots, so you should take this comment with a pound of salt smile
Very well framed Ellie. Not sure if it would have been crisper at a little lower exposure.

This is a very well spotted image. Lots of interesting stuff in the picture, and rust on the top set of pulleys is great.

I think its the way I look at thumbnails but this looked like another of your bird shots, block and tackle, three things you never hear Steve Mcclaren advocating!!!

The colours on this one are fantastic. Excellent framing too.
Good eye. This is a very pleasing image, with great color.
Unusual !
