Yesterday, after a bike ride, I cleaned my bike. I got inspired by the gear's shape. So I decided to get the macro lens and take a close up of it. It looks a lot cleaner when you are not using a lens. But I like the little bit of dirt still on the bike. It adds texture and a bit of drama to the picture.
Please keep in mind that the exposure settings listed above only work for the lighting conditions I had when I took the picture.
