Lovely image and composition.
Would it work in mono?

Andrew you know some super locations, I must come and visit you sometime - maybe with a friend

That's the greenest rust I've ever seen. Great colour, and there's a whole heap of other angles which would work here, also.

Thanks everyone. To be honest, Tim, I've not tried it in mono: I felt the shot partly needed that fresh green to contrast with the rust and old paint.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nice glance, but the thing I like most is the colour, that light green on the dark rusty metal.
