A manhole cover in the sidewalk at sunset. Rather difficult to get texture photos that compress to 150K and still look decent!

The simplicity drew my attention to it. Lighting good, focus fine, totally fits into the theme. 10. well done!

An image that demonstates the subject matter of the challenge in spectacular fashion with excellant DOF and color control. Both a technical and artistic success that more than adequately meets the challenge subject in particular with the color shades. A very worthy contender for top ten honors and a possible ribbon contender.

i almost just touched my monitor to feel the texture. this is the first picture i've been to that's made me do that, so i think that's a good thing. or i need some coffee ;)

i really like how the circles contrast with the straight lines
