Yes, its old, but it feels washed out to me. 5 sjgleah

This is nice, but there is no depth to it. My suggestion is more contrast which would bring out more of the shadows and dark and thus make your pic more pleasant. Keep it up!

Wonderful handling of multiple tones. One of my top three this week. Jak

Excellent subject. Would definitely make this a couple of stops darker.

Very nice shot! Now that looks old! Except for the plant in the foreground blending in with the wheel, this is very good. This shot grows on me, started out as a 7, but with more reflection and viewing, I think it's closer to a 9. Swash

for me, the plant in the foreground is distracting me from relishing the amazing patina of the cart. The...tomato?...bothers me more than the ...cabbage? I know the argument could be made that they frame it, but they seem discordant to me. What a beautiful cart. I hope you keep shooting it when the flora have gone.

Lovely angle and framing. Slightly over light I think.

This is a wonderful old garden wheel barrow. You have done a nice job with near perfect lighting. The only problem I see is that portions of the subject on the very top are blown out with a little too much light. Otherwide great. Autool

Love the monochromatic texture.

Your composition of this shot is what makes this an interesting picture. Nicely done.

I like the different greens in this picture, though I also think it would be awesome if there were another contrasting color somewhere. Great angle/perspective and framing. karmat

I like the monochrome colors in this photo. Very cool feeling and rustic. This must be a great garden.

Good idea filling the frame with the main subject since its color is so simillar to its surroundings and would get lost if it were any less.

I would have liked to have seen the entire barrow. Apart from that – good shooting…

Technical Aspects - Very good
Meets Challenge - yes+
Visual Impact / Originality - high
Looks like a painting. Great job. In my top 3.

for me, finding this photo was like discovering a diamond in the rough. lovely in its own right, but it was clear that with a little polishing through photoshop by tweaking the levels, contrast, saturation, sharpening, etc... that this photo would be a real gem. if you dont use photoshop or one of its equivalents, i urge you to look into doing so. myself and many others on this site would be happy to answer any questions you may have about their use. ~mcmurma (revised 8/11 because i felt the wording in the original was a bit harsh and subject to misinterpretation. my apologies if it offended in any way)
Aesthetics...7 (as is, it would be a 9 or 10 if tweaked)
Meets Challenge...9
Overall...8

I definitely think this is good work :) I wish there was a way to add some contrast thought... I also wonder if a different angle would have allowed you to remove the wooden post from the image... good work :) - jmsetzler

Nice composition and beautiful "color palette" - very pleasing to look at. lhall

Very nice. The color seems a bit washed out -- would like to see more definition of the colors.
