I really like this and the title is perfect. It might have worked a little better with a clearer background, but we work with what we have.

The intent here is terrific. I'd like to see this in B&W it has elements that might make it more effective.

i think you used just about the best angle for this; very nicely done!

The detail in the wheel it terrific, the angles of the wheel against the mountain keep my eyes moving around. This is great.
