While driving around the docks in the harbor of Delfzijl (the Netherlands), looking for an interesting texture, I run into some piles of huge tree-trunks. Each separate trunk was marked with bright painted signs and a number. This is one of them

Thanks for the votes and comments.
Despite the low score I think it's one of the best photos I made so far.

strong graphic content, shows texture but doesn't have a lot of appeal to me.

Fun image. Lovely colorss, particularly the unpainted wood, has a nice patina to it. Problem is though that the red leads your eye out of the picture.

Very sharp, well exposed, nicely composed. I'm sorry, I can't find anything to gripe about:)

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
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!

Excellent... The paint does it all. Very neat and abstract.

My son said "Is that Home Depot"? LOL!
Good texture and subject matter.

what a difference a little paint can make - without it, this would be sooo boring and this way, I really like it ;-) 7 beegee

I like the abstractness of this shot. Very cool.

Really nice pix!!

the paint really killed it for me.

This is kinda cool. A bit abstract with lots of textures. I like the grunge feel of it a lot. Shiiizzzam
