I love the phallic imagery. The light, the rust, this is a freudian dream.

Come on- you can't tell me you didn't see all this in the photo until now. we take photographs with our conscious minds, we make art with our subconcious.

A very interesting close up, dare I say a bit overdone on the sharpening?
What is the strange horseshoe mark left of centre?

Excellent backlighting. The focus is so good, I can see a hair accidently captured in the photo.

I'm a sucker for a great texture shot, the axis of the shot makes me wonder what we're looking at.

Good composition but I find the lighting too harsh.

I'd like to see more of the subject. I'm not sure what this is a picture of. The lighting is nice, though.
