As you already know, reels of irrigation pipes are one of my favorite subjects.
I found this one, and many more, near a "blooming" field of sunflowers, not far from the seaahore.

Indeed, I assumed this was you before reading the caption. Good framing, and nicely arranged with the sunflowers in the background.

The wheel is like a big industrial flower. I like how it is placed taking so much of the space yet not obscuring the fragility of the flowers. I really like the clump of grasses in front of the wheel.

what an interesting perspective Yitzhak. I would have never thought the combination of these two completely different (yet dependent on each other) objects would go so well.

Another clever and original composition, Yitzhak. I like how the 'cold' foreground colours contrast with the 'warmer' background ones. I don't know much about sunflowers, but I also like the way they all seem to have 'drooping heads'. Very well framed.

Good color contrast. Well-composed with an elemnt of graphism thrown in.

I like the idea of similar shapes between the sunflowers & the reel, but I think a more flattened perspective, & a different pov, may mave emphasized this more. Still a nice try though. Well done!

The combination with the splendid sunflowers and the irrigation spindle give a total other composition, but a great contrast between the two elements, this make picture attractive.
Have a nice weekend,

Interesting composition Yitzhak and good perspective with the field in the back, nice framing and good sharpness, well done.

Les tournesols ont bien besoin d'eau à voir leurs têtes penchées vers le sol. Le tuyau d'arrosage est gigantesque, c'est normal il ne s'agit pas d'un jardin potager ;-))
Très bien vu comme toujours.

I love the tones of the large coil of pipe, Yitzhak, but I find the sunflowers and sky to be a bit overexposed. I also very much like the compositional space devoted to the coil. You might try a polarizing filter, or underexpose and bring up the coil later, since shadows contain more detail than your highlights.
Looks like I'm out of smilies. Sorry!

Interesting shot Yitzhak, kind of combining the industrial approch with the agricultaral.
Good contrast, well balanced compo.
