Noise on this is evident. I can see it was an overcast day so you had to up the iso in order to get a shot at all.

Again the comp and frame fits well here and seeing the different ways one can derive what is really the necessity of life is interesting to me.

Keep posting!

since you already have some noise evident as was mentioned, plus the overall lack of contrast in this scene as is.. maybe try desaturating to b&w or slight sepia and adding in a little film grain... just a thought..

thanks for sharing, dustin

Thanks for the comments.

Yes the ISO was high, either 800 or 1600, can't remember exactly. I tried the same subject before in a brighter day. The difficulty was that the contrast between the bright chrome tabs and therather dark copper tab was to big. I wanted details of the copper tab but the chrome tabs were than over exposed.

May be I should use a tripod. Shooting a water tab in a park is bit embassing. LOL. Last time I didn't realise a guy was actually standing behind me. When I stand up hepointed to the tab:"can I use it now?"...."sure, sure...of course, help yourself..." I replied.

Nothing wrong with a little noise. Use your favorite noise reduction software on the original. Most high quality printers handle noise very well too.

Although nice as is, I would have preferred a slightly different perspective than what I'd see if standing at the scene. Possibly rotating the camere to either the left or right or even shooting from above or low would have made this a more interesting image??
