This is beautiful John. Must look incredible at a larger size! The tones and lighting are simply gorgeous. Nice job!

A very nice and interesting study of something like a fading memory. Nice work, John.

Goshdarnit, when I saw this I had this weird inkling it was yours but I didn't put it in my comment because I figured I was so unlikely to be right... sigh! :o)

Glad this did as well as it did. I like your out of the box idea. Lovely quality to this shot.

wow, only one vote 4 or below - hey I think they like it!

I thought this was great- I'm a huge fan of these kinds of organic textures and love what you've done with this presentation. Great work

Delicious colors here...this old Pepsi machine makes a highly interesting and pleasing abstract if we look at just the color and shape alone...nicely seen.
