I was out taking pictures at a small park, enjoying the geometry of it all and the bright colors when I glanced across the street at this fence. The double fence caused me to look a few seconds longer and then I saw the almost hidden picture. Freaky. My belief about abortion doesn't take away the impact that I felt looking at the scene. It's a picture that I had to take. The sign says: "Face it, abortion kills"

Very good representation of a very controversial decision that many have to make. Excellent fence analogy. It would be better if the text could be more clearly read, but that would be difficult with this shot.

This is an intriguing shot, but, I'm not sure what it is, and I can't make out the words. Is it a grave site? I'm pulled in by it, but confused at the same time.

A good b/w shot. The grain in the fence in the background is good, but I'm finding that the pickets in the front a bit too 'glaring' for my liking. I love how sharp the image is though.

Well, interesting composition. Once I read your comments after the contest, I'll see how you did this one, and write back.

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. The subject is too hidden... it took me a moment to figure it out.

I don't mind when someone tries to make their political statement with their photo. However, your scores will be probably be determined more by whether or not the voter agrees instead on the quality of the photo. good luck.
