Old buckboard wagon wheel. It seems to have seen better days:?

What a find! Can you imagine crafting that from raw wood or having to repair it on the "road?" Glad you posted that in a format that wasn't even a dream when that wheel was in use.

Thanks all for the kind comments.

I took a few angle of this wheel, and liked this one the best. I played around alot with the saturation (mainly to desaturate certain areas) to get this effect.

Alex, I did try a b/w on this but to me it lost something, (being an old b/w photographer that surprised even me) it still needed a touch of color.

Hi Alex,

Nice try on the picture. it looks a bit more sepia than B/W. As I stated earlier in this thread the B/W did nothing for me, and sorry to say, neither does this.

I can not quite place it, but something in this version and a true B/W is just missing something.

I think it's the hub, Mugmar. I'm like others in thinking this one would really look good in B/W, but I agree with you that I like the color best. There is a difference in shading and tint between the wood of the hub and that of the spokes, and the rust on the hub just doesn't come through in the conversions.

Nice capture.
