Abandened housing project in SW Washington. I'm not sure how this will do because the abandoned building isn't the main subject. I modified contrast, color and brightness in Photoshop Elements.

Nice point of view and great use of minimal depht of field.
Clarity & detail well done without being over-sharpened.

The title sums it up. Excellent DOF. All the right elements.Very powerful statement, IMHO. Great.

Good use of shallow DOF.

very nice and one of few inventive ideas in this challenge, however - isn't the line looking brand new?

Nice use of DOF. I like the photo, but the edges of the clothespins look too sharp. They look like they have been cut and pasted in. I don't know if it is due to using unsharp mask, but it just doesn't look quite right.

Reverse DOF? Like the lines too.

The problem is that the shiny white clotheslines suggest that these particular clothespins might belong to an inhabited building. If so, then we might call the abandoned building in the background a minor element. ... But we're not going to do any of that. I like the tension between the clothespins and the background.

I really love this shot. Deep, rich tones and great composition and use of shallow focus. Very nicely done!

This has the color tones of film, and you do a good job of pulling off the medium format look here. It reminds me a lot of the stuff I see at //www.makinghappy.com/ . You'll have nitpickers who suggest that the clothes pins make this place not abandoned, or that the focus should be on the building, but I think you've achieved your goal here. The building itself isn't visually very remarkable, but it serves as a good backdrop for the photo. I like it a lot. :)

Very original ! I wish you good luck and a big 9 !

Now this is nice. Although you didn't capture the textures of the building itself, this is a very intersting image. One of the few that is different from the rest. Bumping up for originality. <7>

This is an interesting study of cloths pins.

Cool. Nice approach that uses other elements to enahance the shot. Well done.

I really like the composition of this photo. The string looks a bit new to be abandoned though. Good luck
