Wanted to make a abstract picture about a single part of a bicycle and chose the front wheel. Worked with a very shallow depth of field to create that abstract feeling. Used the sun/shadow transition in the background to have additional contrast.
- Shot in B/W mode
- Picture was taken outside with sunlight only
- cropped and added border

Fascinating abstract detail study. Love the shallow depth of field, the light and shadow and the big curve sweeping from top right corner. Nice! In my top 5 of the challenge.

I'm a cyclist and I can't tell what this is??

Good shot!

Certainly the best of these so far, but I still find it doesn't do anything for me.

very creative DOF

this is too close up and it hurts my eyes to look at it because it is only focused in the middle.

Too much is out of focus here.

Depth of field is too shallow.

nice macro!

beauty! macro shots always fascinate me

I wish the DOF was just a little wider, and the background on the left is a little distracting, great attempt!

Spikes or treads?? Abstract bike shot. Interesting. I like black and white.

Simple idea but nicely done.

I like the narrow depth of field of this picture, but maybe a little more detail in focus would have worked too
04/11/2007 12:45:03 PM
It is nice, but which part of the bicycle is it?
04/11/2007 11:36:25 AM
This image is a little unclear on what it is a shot of...But i like the close-up shot.

Too much is blurred out.
