Super perspective - and the glistening carriage style wheels compliment the modern vehicles in the background.

Terrific idea for a photo. I love the clarity of the old wheel with the blurred 21st century images in the background.

I agree with Eyeconic and others; the modern cars in the blurred background accentuate the subject of he glistening wagon wheel. Well conceived!

Behind The Lens

Location
Photo has been taken on a one day journey to Vienna, Austria.
Time
Whole day I spent walking around Vienna and taking shots. I was in love in this city, and I think that that was my most successful day when we are talking about my personal satisfaction with what i have photographed and how it turned out. Just about when the day was closing to an end and city lights started to turn on than i saw the real beauty of this town.
Lighting
Like i said, lighting a little low as day was closing to an end but many city lights in Vienna's smaller streets make a great atmosphere
Equipment
As usual with me i have always my canon 600D and a little thing called plastic fantastic, that is Canon 50mm f/1.8 I wish I had the tripod but my awkward kneeling position did the job.
Inspiration
I don't know if that is always the case in Vienna, but when i was in that city, everywhere was crowded with tourists. Everywhere you go you hear shutters clicking. I see something interesting, take a photo of it, look at the photo, just as I start to think that it has something to it and i see at least 3 more people making that photo. On one particular square i forgot the name, there was chariots with horses that you can pay to give you a tour around town. For all other people the most interesting thing was making selfies with horses, but i saw something different. That square was the most crowded place i have been to all day...just ocean of people buzzing around. In a city where almost everything is new, where everything looks expensive, the most attention was given to something old fashioned. So I had to give it a go...to make a photo that will represent what i felt like in that moment. And there it is, you can imagine that shiny town in the background, and on top of that something old and traditional in closeup. Photos of horses, new cars and shop-windows you can see everywhere and this was my way to show you that scene.
Editing
Post processing is not my strong point, I did some Lightroom editing, but for me its touching sliders a bit on a raw file until I get something I like.
In my camera bag
I'm a amateur photographer, I don't have fancy equipment, in my bag there is canon 600D, 18-55mm kit lens, 10-18mm canon lens, 50mm f1.8, mir 37mm f2.8 m42,and Jupiter 85mm f2 m42. I have a small Manfrotto tripod and that's about it.
Feedback
If you like to travel and love to take photos take some time and think about what you wanna be in what moment.When you go somewhere you make just your own memories and no one else feels like you in that time. If you are reading this its most likely that you are into photography and that you love what you do. The mission of photographers is to tell a story without words, to show the world how did you felt in a moment when the image was taken.When you come home do you wanna have same photos as every other tourist that you saw that day, or you wanna make something different like you felt different, something that will tell your story of that moment?
