This is a railing at the Public Market in downtown Fort Worth. I downsampled the full frame image to 480x640 and then deleted the red and blue channels. I then desaturated the green channel and saved as grayscale.

I really like the leading lines. They really draw me into and through the image

Very cool. i like the direction my eye gets pulled into.
07/20/2002 10:30:00 PM
This reminds me of a screensaver on my PC. Very good job with the geometrical forms. So many lines and repeating patterns makes this a delight for the eyes.
07/20/2002 07:53:00 PM
Great use of line
07/20/2002 05:43:00 PM
Interesting... I like it
07/20/2002 12:25:00 AM
Interesting pattern.
07/19/2002 02:36:00 PM
Nice perspective; great lines; would like this image to tell me more of a story. 5 sjgleah

Is this prison?
07/18/2002 11:42:00 PM
I'm not sure why, but I like this. Works in B & W....wouldn't have in color...imho I like fences of all kinds and this one is nice and shiny. The brick is nice too.
07/18/2002 05:51:00 PM
it would have been better if the backgorund behind the pipes was empty... perhaps with a different angle this would have been possible. :-)
07/18/2002 08:17:00 AM
effective angle; black on top is heavy - burning in darker on the bottom shapes of fence might counteract it
07/18/2002 02:36:00 AM
Looks like you really paid close attention to lines and angles.
07/17/2002 05:49:00 PM
interesting. maybe more contrast
07/17/2002 05:34:00 PM
07/17/2002 05:02:00 PM
strong composition
07/17/2002 03:03:00 PM
nice one!
07/17/2002 01:48:00 PM
good choice for black and white.
07/17/2002 10:52:00 AM
07/17/2002 10:51:00 AM
i like the perspective.
07/17/2002 10:23:00 AM
I keep coming back to this one. I like the angle and perspective. The b&w was a good choice I think. I'd like to see it cropped a little more on the right but sometimes we don't have that choice I know. I like this. 8 - KDJohnson

Interesting? What point did you focus on? If you would have focuessed a little closer to the camera, and used a small aperature, you may have been able to keep the bar in focus.
07/16/2002 10:59:00 PM
Effective in composition and contrasts.
07/16/2002 04:09:00 PM
A good b/w shot.
07/16/2002 11:16:00 AM
Its's almost there--just a bit of a tweak in contrast and light/dark.
07/16/2002 09:43:00 AM
good idea, but the background is too busy for me
07/15/2002 11:50:00 PM
Great b&w. Is that one of those big trashcans in the way of the rest of the view? Too bad. 7 Lisa
07/15/2002 09:18:00 PM
Love the b&w ... I think I'm going to try it for my next one.
07/15/2002 08:35:00 PM
great dof. like the b&w.
07/15/2002 07:23:00 PM
Great photo - I think the b&w really works for this photo. Excellent DOF.
07/15/2002 07:18:00 PM
neat shot
07/15/2002 05:31:00 PM
interesting shot :) I like the lines.. the only issue i have is that the lines lead me into a void in the image... black and white works well here though :) = 6 - jmsetzler
07/15/2002 04:45:00 PM
interesting photo, nice black and white 7
07/15/2002 04:43:00 PM
Nice subject for black and white work. Great pattern, low excitement. 7 Swash
07/15/2002 04:34:00 PM
Well done! Nice composition, perspective, DOF, use of B&W, etc.
07/15/2002 04:03:00 PM
I love the title the tones, DOF and the crisp look of this shot. Well done. Kee
07/15/2002 03:45:00 PM
Nice shot!
07/15/2002 03:24:00 PM
technically strong
07/15/2002 12:37:00 PM
07/15/2002 08:51:00 AM
It was a good idea but the stuff on the left distracts from your subject.
07/15/2002 07:15:00 AM
Nice light and contrasts.
07/15/2002 06:12:00 AM
good depth
07/15/2002 01:53:00 AM
I like this photo a lot. Excellent tonality and depth of field control.
07/15/2002 01:34:00 AM
More DOF would have been nice to blur out the background and not make out the overpasses in the distance.
