This was my third 10; 25 and 26 were the others. How about that :-) Lovely, kinda aching shot.

I find a ship's wheel in the sand
And by her side a leaf points north.

This will take me here, boys. This will take me here.

Un unusual interpretation of the poem. I'm drawn to the rusty colours in particular. Although the leaf provides a good contrast to the metal I think I'd have preferred it at an angle rather set so perfectly; probably represents my own sense of chaos!

This is the most elegant photographic expression of the poem. It beautifully & effortlessly embraces Sailing to Byzantiumís themes of art-nature, mortality-immortality, and impermanence-transformation.

Yours is also the most economical and the most satisfyingly figurative of all the entries, especially as you have addressed the entire poem with your photograph rather than just an easily illustrated phrase wrenched callously out of its context.

Elegantly expressive, economical and figurative? Your photograph is itself a poem! Thatís quite an achievement, but it makes you stand out a little awkwardly among so much leadenly literal stuff that appears to have been intended to demonstrate indifference to Yeatsís poem. Or to any poem.

Your beautiful photograph is my top pick. 10. And thank you.

I am not sure I understand the meaning of the poem or your image, but I do like the image.

Interesting find. I like the textures and patterns a lot. Is that snail on top of a barrell, or is the barrel top just on the ground?
