Perfect shot for the challenge - unforced except for the flip which has the tantalizing effect of bringing attention more to the shadow than the railing which would be more natural in its customary orientation.

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

A great example of simplicity working at its best, I love that you have had the creative vision to see the potential to invert the image and present it in this intriguing and appealing way, its adds much more interest to the image. The subtle lighting and tones are perfect for the subject with those gorgeous reflections of the treads, the golden tint of the rail supports, the lighter lower half against the darker upper half of the tank, its all working so well together.

There are no problems at all with your composition here Marcel, the diagonal is the binding and dynamic force that holds it all together, the portrait orientation is the right choice with the treads support going perfectly from corner to corner. The image shows that you have taken the time and care to get it right and its paid off hugely.

Your ribbon and new PB are both very well deserved and the satisfying thing is this all your own work, all entirely down to yourself alone without any pre-entry collaboration, very well done Marcel. Next goals, 7+ and a blue? Congratulations, Sid.


+1 on all counts. Painfully simple, doesn't need to be anything more or pp'd up the wazoo. Huge congrats on the yellow!

Thought this was a zip from the thumbnail (don't worry my optician has already told me I need glasses)

Very cool image. Well done.

It's kind of a game of trying to find all of the diagonals. This works well.

Oh! I really like this! The monotone works well, as does the shadowing. Nice find!

Hmmm ... I think we've seen this place before? :-) Upside down is fun. Good luck.
