Rusted Teeth

A rusted sawblade. This one could also use some WD40!

Now, that is very well-established rust. Nothing superficial here !

Great use of the blueish backgound to accent the teeth. I like the way the black spots break up the gear - making it more interesting.

I don't think even a whole can of wd40 is going to get that baby to move!

From the looks of it I think it is too late for WD-40 to do any good! Great colour and texture in this rusty blade! Nicely captured Elaine! ;-)

Another good shot Elaine, I like the bokeh.... it allows the blades to be seen quite clearly. I also like the splotchy dark spots on the rusted blade, it adds to the overall look of the photo. A great series!

Another great example of textures which really stand out nicely in the two colors! The teeth stand out nicely against the background as well.
