It’s a first time analysed here for David Gumbrell (Auribins).


So often, good composition is about seeing something from just the right angle, getting the elements to line up in the way that makes the image flow. A step to one side or the other and it all falls apart. Here, we have a perfect example of that: a heavy mechanical piece shot in such a way as to come across as abstract, the physical depth somewhat lost through the limited context, and the slightly out of focus masking hole.

Given the regularity of the pattern, the horizontally centred position is perfect. The vertical being off-centre likewise works with the symmetries at play. The lighting is very nicely emphasised by the light layer of grease on the nearer cogs and the hole.

A very effective bit of work that manages to make the mechanical interesting.
