Hoofed it up Snow King and low and behold, a fence!

This title is symbolic of going beyond our youth into the "real" playgrounds of adulthood.

Great shot, love the mountains in the background. Also really like how the colors of the fence go hand in hand with the mountains. Nice work.

I like this. I had to look at it for a while but it get's me. The use of B&W was a good choice, and the depth of field is good. I think a bit more depth would be nice but the haze over such a distance is difficult to deal with.

striking !

This photo really makes me hate fences... you've used the subject to convey emotion very well here. Simply good. It's lacking a little in tones though. I'm not sure if dodging and burning was allowed, but, good!

Would like to see more contrast in this - a lot of grays.

I personally think that cropping off the right hand quarter and bottom quarter of this photo (with finished product still being 640 wide) would improve it greatly. Then the peak would not be dead center horizontally and the valley would not be dead center vertically. 7 as it is.

Lacking contrast...

More contrast perhaps IMHO

When I set out to do this challenge I swore I was not going to shoot a 'chain link' fence.... too DULL! This is a good shot. I almost feel imprisoned. That fence is the only thing standing between me and all the rest of the world. And the light reflecting off the wire works well for you. Congratulations... you won me over.
