Digital Speed Challenge #672 - Smart/Minimal and Simple Logo/Symbol

There are some things in this man-made world that are striking and instantly recognisable - largely due to their simplicity e.g. a Mercedes-Benz 3-pointed star.

Lighting and composition are key, go find

This challenge begins when posted and ends on Monday, September 13th at midnight GMT. Winner of this challenge will be announced shortly thereafter.

Challenge Rules:

1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, not just DSLR.
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: Please visit Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer per challenge. List camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data: ISO, shutter speed and aperture.
6. Commenting: No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
8. Have questions, PM me.
9. Have lots of FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED!

Jerry-R : Simple but "flat" composition. Probably effective but I see no logo or symbol

rwmson : A loud and clear logo but, photographically, it does not fl;oat my boat

RDWP : Satisfies my spec. perfectly. Love the simplicity of this shot

OldCrow : Love the composition and lighting, good adherence to spec.

Ltdave : No doubt what this is; I have one too :-) But it's a bit "flat"

Happygav Yes, this one works for me, ticks all boxes

OldCrow takes the crown this weed with Happygav and RDWP 2nd equal

Thanks to everyone who entered a shot this week

Over to you OldCrow

Congratulations Don, nicely snapped!

That is a Castle Nut and End Plate for an AR-15 build.

Martin, The "F" in a shield (shown on the lower piece) is the logo for Fortis Manufacturing. I agree, a bit flat, and difficult to see the logo.

This is the AR-15 I built that has the castle nut and end plate. It is a semi-automatic firearm.

Hardly the best choice when the Thread Starter lives in a country where private ownership of firearms is very strictly controlled and fewer than 0.1% of the UK population have a legal firearm. That does not stop crime but it is a very severe limitation.

great "shot" but having built a dozen or so, where does the castle nut go? granted ive not built any with a key-mod, quadrail so maybe its part of that? is it on the buffer tube maybe?
