I like the way the tone emphasises the soldity of the steelwork, it is very effective. I think I might have cropped the top to lose the partial slot as it acts against the symmetry.
How big is the castellated nut? it looks enormous.

Thanks for the comments. I'm always pleased to get feedback, its the only way to learn.

I agree about cropping the top, I should have thought of it, but was captivated by the rest of the picture. Lesson learnt - be more careful, and critical of my own work. The castelated nut is about 3 inches across the flats.
