i liked the lines formed by the chains as well as the minimal color with just splash of yellow to "anchor" this one..

i like how the yellow is anchored into that corner too, i think you achieved what you were going for- all the elements fall into place nicely.

I like this shot but I feel like I want to tilt my head. I think you did a great job capturing it and I don't think changing the angle would help. You have placed the chain coming into the scene and the yellow mooring point in wonderful positions. The colour against the grey is striking.* *...........Very very Nice * *<but I still feel like I want to tilt my head>

thanks jules and rhino...

its not surprising that you feel that you should tilt your head, as i purposefully put the angle into the shot.. doing so i was better able to take advantages of the lines and lend a little more dynamic feel to the shot that would have been absent shot straight on..

It feels like you nailed right on the edge. Any more and I think it would have ruined it.. Risky but it paid off <grin> For sake of interest... How many shots of this did you take?* This seems to be a very unique composition to me. Kudos

this was actually the only 1 of this i took.. but i did not just see it and shoot.. i viewed it from many angles and with variations in the tilt until i liked it, then took my time and took 1 good shot.. this is uncropped as well..

the appeal for me is more in the lines and industrious feel to it.. because of the subject matter, a real emotional response was not what i was going for here, as it would be rather difficult.. it is what it is, a study in industrious lines..

i feel that nature is better for what you are wanting me to convey, and right now, the weather here is not the bestfor presenting nature.. so hang around for a month or two andi will get back to my nature shots

to be honest with you d-man, when i first looked at this shot, i had to do a double

take and make sure that it was you who posted.

instinct.

it's just not what i'm used to seeing from you.

the more i look at it though, even without reading your description, i can appriciate

what you were going for here.

and being honest once again, (no i am not kissing your butt :blah i rather enjoy this

shot.

the lines and the contrasting colors (cold blue-gray, warm yellow), the tilt.

i would like to know how it would have looked with the joining of the hose and the

chain in the left corner, though.

Take the compliment from Scot. I have followed his comments he is a very reserved person in his comments.

Besides the fun, I am amazed but the simplicity of the subject and the photo. You certainly have an artistic eye. The infinite patience that seems to ooze from you is something that I need to cultivate - taking time to shoot especially static subjects. In the beginning I would shoot a 100 frames hoping one of them would be right, many times there were not. I have now cut that number to less than 10 but still to go. Infinite patience! :G Regards. Jaki.
