Why ask the question in your title when your photo tells us the answer?

can't tell what it is but it looks ancient and I love the crashing wave. The little shoe in the shadow is disturbing though.

Interesting piece. Top 15 for me. Would like to remove the thing on left side.

Pilar bulkhead

Weird title - this is going to do well, Very interesting shot. great color. the water all over the textured wall just keeps me staring at this to figure out why it's there. You've captured movement in the water very much like your eye would see it. good work

I really like the perspective on this shot. Good textures too!
07/24/2002 11:47:00 PM
Well, I'd vote for the bulkhead.
07/24/2002 03:22:00 PM

Technical Aspects7
Meets Challenge8
Total Score7

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!

My guess would be none of the above, Is it not a piling? One of my top picks this week.
07/23/2002 11:43:00 AM
good texture, i like the picture - didn't like the title as much.
07/23/2002 12:47:00 AM
good effects and perspective...I would have put the centerpiece off center a little
07/22/2002 06:50:00 PM
Neat angle. Too bad about the bright glare on the waves.
07/22/2002 04:30:00 PM

Or none of the above :) It looks to me like the top of a log that has been varnished. Very nice photo with good texture.
07/22/2002 12:05:00 PM
Cool perspective. Could of been a bit more sharp, crisp. Kee

a pier post

This caught my eye right away. It's beautiful and full of texture. Deeper color to make it more rich would be cool but it's still really nice:)
