    Wow, I thought this would finish much higher.

    I think if you had included all the tug at the bottom it would have created better balance although the reds in the photos do a fair job on their own. Also, more detail is needed in the shadows. Good fit for the theme.

    An interesting relic of times past, that has probably operated non-stop since it was built. The buildings in the back give an idea of height. I like the inclusion of the boat, even though not much is visible. I expect the angles for shooting were limited.

    Great use of a crane (for Guinness) and even better use for the theme. I love the color contrasts. Well done.

    I'm sure the options are limited but the framing doesn't work for me here.

    this is the definition of a tun
1. A large cask for liquids, especially wine.
2. A measure of liquid capacity, especially one equivalent to approximately 252 gallons imperial (954 liters)
the tuns for the Guinness were aluminium which sat on wooden pallets.

    Definitely big and heavy-duty. And it does important work in unloading things like Guinness.
