A pic of my out-of-shape weights. There's a squirt of iron-y there somewhere.

cool shot kali - I didn't get a chance to vote on this one but you would have gotten a good score from me - I don't think that there is anyone voting who can't relate to fitness "intentions" gone "rusted". the one you got was down right RUDE, I hope he/she gets kicked off...no place for that here, don't get discouraged from stupid people - your're on my favorites list cuz your good!

Anyways, just going through the aforementioned list tryin' to keep up with everyones work, and thought I drop my two cents on your pic. I think its technically very sound and can't really think of anything that could be better - Nice work.

bad dof

Very ironic. I think this shot would have benefitted from greater depth of field, or a main focus on the word barbell if that was not possible.

I do see the iron here, but where is the irony?

the texture of rust makes great photos but your limited DOF didn't get enough of it here, good on the irony part

Simple and effective and I like the limited dof. MIght have been better to focus on the word barbell, but the way it is suggests casualness and that is why the weight is rusted in the first place. 9

Good technical quality. The rusted barbell weight makes a good subject. Your use of DOF is common with this type of closeup, though I generally don't prefer the center focused variety like this. Putting the exact center of the barbell hole exactly at the upper left corner might add a touch to this very nice shot.

I like the composition alot.

Great depth of field, good detail.

Good macro with a very very shallow DOF. The main focal point is only about a centimeter wide. Nice effect..

Good shot, nice idea.

Nice one! I love the focus and the irony.
