Default Interesting..........

Hello Dan....
I think your shot is neat...Something you don't see very often...Well, in my case never....I like it....A couple of things I see that could improve it....
First, your missing some of the shot by being to tight with the shot...I would have liked to see all of the tractor and its gear...Maybe you just cropped to tight...If so, show the whole gizzmo...Second, the shot is just a bit flat...Some contrast would fix it and bump the saturation up for more vivid color...All in all though, its a different, but neat shot...

I agree with John on both aspects, the cropping and the contrast. That tractor with the 'rakes' is very symetrical and I would have used that. Perhaps a straight on shot with the tractor filling the frame showing that symetry. Aside from being an interesting piece of equipment it would make a nice visual design as well.

Trying to get the shot and stay out of the way cause me not to get the whole rake. I have others shot with the rakes in action. Maybe later this year i can get more. Just as an afterthought it was accepted by 6 of 10 stock agencies and a 7th accepted it for the free section.

As you can see - a lot of dust and sharp blades means stand back. I quess i should have tried harder.

Can you tell us more about stock agencies? Im curious how they operate. Can you make much money if you have a few shots? Do you get paid each time your shot gets used? I monkeyed with your pic to give it some more punch.
