No idea what this is, but it was laying around a bunch of machines in an old textile factory. A little more depth of field might improve this.

I don't know. I think the dof is fine. It makes the shot more artistic than documentary, and such a piece of metal has a certain artistry about it. I like it.

I think the DoF works well to single this part out!! Beautiful tones as well.
