... stopping-it-down for long exposure in the day light: EXIF plus circular polarizer (2-stops), plus 4-stop ND graduated filter.
For the gear heads: Let's say we're looking at 1/4 of the drive gear. We can clearly see all of the driven gear. This gives us a gear ratio of 0.092 at the input shaft of the mill drive ... no torque at that point but a ton of speed!
Hi there Kevin
Hmm... Well being a newb @ photography and being a girlie girl: All of that is gibberish to me! But I do know a GREAT photo when I see one!
I like it ofcourse!

GG, ~WAVES~ back! I'm always happy to hear from fellow North Carolinians ... even the one's in Canada! :)
I'm glad you like this one - it was a lot of fun to capture. So you're a newbie, huh? I've only been at this for about a year myself. I had a quick spin through your gallery; looks like your producing some fine work. I'll be looking for more uploads from you!
Very nice presented. Greetings, Jim
Hi Kevin. Great detail in this one. Shows off nicely the mechanics and the aging of the structure. Cheers from "the other coast", Randy.
Well, Kevin, this is simply amazing! I love the composition, and as Randy says, you've captured amazing details.
Hi Kevin, I really like the subject in this shot. You have captured all the detail and colours really well. Regards, Nik
and yeah, you too, KC (hehehe) -
Thank you all for the kind remarks (well, everyone except *KC), I enjoyed being able to take time to get this one. I wonder if this qualifies as a "macro" of the much larger building?
Cheers to all!
Maybe it qualifies as a micro? :)
Your old stacked filter/slow shutter trick did it again! Great detail with silky water, I really like it!
Thank you Jeroen - I was shocked to get 6.0 seconds out of this one. I think the tone of the circular polarizer helps this one.
Very moody Kevin I sure Like it!
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
But it's ok to eat fish
Cause they haven't any feelings ........
Wow. Excellent long exposure! Did you use a Neutral Density filter?
LIKE + YS
Oh yes I see you did. ND4.
Thank you Erik - I'm very happy you like(d) this one ... it's currently one of my personal favorites.
Liam, I see you found it but yes, an ND filter and a circular polorazier on this one ... the ploarizer wasn't used for any glare or reflection problems, I just needed all the stops I could get
Max, I'm very happy that you like this one! I really enjoy long exposure shots - its definitely one of my favorite techniques.
