Looks like the tire off a vehicle at the World of Wheels that a group was going to rebuilt between this year's event and next year.

Some days I feel like this but not saying how many.

That tire has been rode hard. Good job Greg.

There is nothing "wrong" with this photo but I feel like I would like more contrast on the tire and wheel, brighter whites and darker blacks. The body is carrying the highlights and the underside is carrying the shadows, leaving the wheel with just the midtones. Maybe this is what you meant and I'm just not getting it.

Oh I looked at that.And I found that at print size the contrast
was taking too much away from the nuances and details in the
rubber and the metal (that can't be seen at this size). It also
took me a while to achieve the shadow contrasted that I wanted in
the shadow area around the tire. For me it effected the overall
balance I was after in the image. I was really after a tired eye
effect. For me the current balance has a Mexican feel to it - I
think from earlier days on viewing old Mexican black & whites. I
was after a certain feel from a simple image. Thanks for your
thoughts CH. Have a great day

It's interesting how wrinkles can add so much beauty
