Nice colour and texture...

This photo screams out texture to me. Your composition is good, as is your lighting.

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge9
Total Score9

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

this is one interesting wheel. the many properties of its construction (and subsequent weathering) look really cool. ~mcmurma

What wonderful textures and colors all over this wheel. I like the composition too.

I really like your photo, compositionally it's one of my favorites. There is a lot of latitude in the highlights and shadows and you did a good job of capturing the best parts of both. You kind of shot yourself in the foot though by submitting such a small file. This kind of picture should be brutally sharp and if you had used the whole 150k it would have been better.

I bet this thing as some stories to tell! The colors are good, but I think it is framed a bit tight on the left side, at least for me. karmat

Wow! This photo has almost too MUCH texture! It's interesting, but my eye can't really find a place to focus because there's so much detail. You really captured a panorama of textures in this shot.
07/23/2002 06:29:00 PM
This is a great photo but it looks a tad bit out of focus.
07/23/2002 03:12:00 PM
Great subject but somehow it's alittle flat. I think it needed more light - perhaps a fill-in flash held off to one side or something. Or maybe more colour.
07/23/2002 03:37:00 AM
This is spectacular, One of my favorites for this challenge. I just want to see what it's attached to. Great color. Did you hit sharpen? the image looks a little soft for my taste.
07/22/2002 09:35:00 PM
Wow, is this a wheel or an accident waiting to happen? I like the picture - could use a little more light in the upper left.
07/22/2002 06:44:00 PM
Cool. I like this. Might not crop so much of bottom.
07/22/2002 04:52:00 PM
great shot! looks like this wheel might tell one hell of a story if it could talk...
