Challenge: Image without Subject (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Kodak DX7590
Location: Denver, CO
Date: Aug 26, 2006
Aperture: f2.8
ISO: 80

Rotate, crop, warm photo filter, neat image, re-size, add border, save for web.

This was certainly a tough challenge. The first thing that came to mind was to be funny and shoot something totally white and call it "polar bear on white snow" but, in the name of learning I figured I should take this challenge slightly more seriously. I chose this image because I like that there is a lot going on without it being too busy or too abstract... there is detail in the wood, the water, the reflection of the wood of the fence. I think there was a lot of confusion about how to create an image without a definable subject, certainly for me... I'm excited to see how others interpreted this- my guess is that there will be lots of abstracts, and city scenes/landscapes. My image is also small and pushing the 640x160 limit, even with my borders... I wonder if that'll hurt my scores or not, also wondering of the no title thing will hurt... I'm hoping for somewhere between 4.5 and 5, but ya know, not holding my breath:)

I like the image a lot...the border is distracting to me.

If it weren't so small I'd give it a 10...will a 9 work?

A bit small, but unique...I like it! 6, but larger version...possibly a 10.

the actual image area is so small, and the border is so weird, that i have trouble finding anything of interest in this photograph :(

I wish they gave us more pixels in times like this...I actually love this image and hope you get it printed and framed...it makes an interesting abstract looking shot...I am not sure how the rest of the voters will treat it, but I actually like this
