l love the texture being seen here.

very nice texture :) I like the clean execution on this one... The lighting is a little strong but it works well here. The only thing I can see that *I* would like in this image is a stronger diagonal in the spaces between the rope. They are not horizontal, but I think a little stronger diagonal here would add more impact in my own opinion... good work :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Excellent detail -- an exemplary macro shot. My favorite are the loose threads that give it the really rough feeling, a great example of texture.

Nicely captured.

Nice colors and texture.

Nice lighting! Really shows the frayed look of the ropes!

Technical Aspects7
Meets Challenge8
Total Score8

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!

Maybe try this in black and white. Very nice, sharp image.

Great texture and focus. My mind sees this as more of a horizontally framed subject though, instead of vertical.

Nice repetitive pattern, and love the color.

good idea for a texture. the photo has nice lines created by the gaps between the ropes, and the twisting contour of each. if you lit it from the side, though, you could get rid of that reflection, and the texture would come out even more.

very well caught.

Nice texture...

Color - gorgeous, lighting - beautiful 8

nice but a bit monotonous. Introducing some other object or re-arranging some of the rope would have given some tension to the img.
