A manhole cover. These things are quite gorgeous, I think. I like the metalwork and the surrounding stone - quite lovely patterns.

Tonemapped from a single image, then taken to PS for crop, rotate 180 degrees, levels, sharpen. Usual resize, save for web thingies.

Congrats, Deb! Now who's in danger of falling upward out of Team Suck? ;)

I agree with you, I love the details in these covers. This one looks particularly nice because the ground is stone instead of pavement. Th detail in this is very nice as well as the colors of the metal, rust, and stones.

Great catch here. I'll definitely look at manholes more in a different light now!

Absolutely gorgeous Deb image! How can you say you are boring? Lovely score to boot!

This is such a "Deb" photo! A perfect representation of your wonderful bold, sharp style with appealing angles and colors! Congratulations once again on a finish quite unworthy of Team Suck :)

Hey - what are you doing up here ahead of me? Very nice image Deb. Sharp detail and a great city feel. Well done and congrats on the 6 score. I was one of your 7s.

Great photo. Only complaint is the junk in the right hole.

Technically well done. You have made this interesting by teasing the viewer into wondering what the subject is.

Nice idea, not one you see everyday. It is good, but, needs something, maybe a little more dramatic proccessing to really make it stand out.

Nice colours, but there's something I'm just not enamoured with about this entry.

Love the muted tones here - the thumbnail is a real interest grabber & the full size doesn't disappoint! A hair more saturation & contrast would have tickled my fancy, though - y'know, bring out some of the lovely tones that can be found in rust shots. I like the choice in composition & crop - << 7 >>

This is a nice idea but I think it would be more interesting if you zoomed out and showed the whole piece. Nice composition and color. 6
