Today was going to be a desperation shot, but I ended up spending quite a bit of time with the angle and lighting of this. You're looking at a shot of disc brakes on my fiance's mountain bike. I have disc brakes on my bike, too, but these are way more interesting. I only have one flash unit, which was positioned just on the other side of the tire. I really wish I'd had another one so I could have lit the front of the disc a little better, but I had to settle for the D80's built-in flash. I do like how the wear lines from the brakes showed up.
Thanks to everyone who guessed on yesterday's daily! It is indeed a hand - the hand on a crosswalk sign. I was holding the camera below the actual sign, and the lights are behind a deep grill, which is why the top of the hand kind of disappears. Hopefully that makes sense...
