Great holmertz 2019-09-27 3:30

Hello Bev,
It's a charming photo and especially the girl provides nice colours (including her hair). I always like human touch photos where there is something going on, like here. But I have a feeling the sharpness is not quite up to your normal standard. That also goes for the WS with the close view of the machinery. Are these strongly cropped photos, showing only small parts of the original pictures? WS #1 is perfectly sharp. In any case both additional photos make the machinery look like it was designed by engineers in close cooperation with artists.
Kind regards,

Thank you for these thoughtful observation, Gert.

With regard to the main post, yes, I did crop it, not that it was a poor composition but I wanted to totally concentrate on the trio of figures.
It was a very quick shot because I didn't want to distract her, though I spent some time afterwards just enjoying the fun she was having.
I was afraid to sharpen it too much because photographs can easily become spoiled.

With regards to the w/s, neither was cropped.
I took these close ups because I loved the shapes that were visible.
The one of the cog wheel does look like a line drawing but I assure you, it looked like that in the camera. I sharpened it a little and brightened it a little.
I did take it with my phone.

I hope you can make sense of this long explanation,
