Commenting as part of my commitment to Team Suck:

Acoustic tiles in an orthodontist's office... to drown out all the drilling and screaming?

Didn't get around to commenting on this in the challenge....

Funny thing is the thumb nail for this image jumped out at me right away. It was one of the fist images I viewed in the challenge. But, I didn't like it as much full size.... something got a bit lost from thumbnail to full size. I think stainless is really hard to photograph, and maybe that is the issue. The composition of the shot was interesting but the relationship of the background to the subject got muddied.

Nice geometry, but foam is not too pretty...
