Rusted Screw and Weathered Pylon

It's another Experimental Friday entry which takes us back to the pylons that were featured on Tuesday's Long Exposure post.  After getting the composition I had sought for some time, I took the camera off the tripod and decided to play with angles and depth of field.  I noticed this rusted screw in the nearest pylon and decided to make that a focal point with the swirling waves serving as a backdrop.  I opened up the lens to its widest aperture and focused on the screw.  In doing so, the texture of the rust and the patterns on the pylon [...]
