Submitted just for fun - can't wait to see the comments I get for this one. I don't expect a high mark, but at least it might cheer up people bored of seeing bycicle after bycicle...

The picture is of a Sharmanka theatre sculpture - there's a guy in Glasgow that makes them, they're moveable, and come with strange lights, and spooky, somewhat melancholy music. I love them, and this photo really doesn't do it justice.

Editing: crop, hue/sat, contract, usm.

This one is awesome. If it were sharper it would be a killer shot. Very creative with excellent pattern and repetition.

I love this! I'm not sure what is going on here--but that is part of the charm.

You said on your profile page: "Current thought: I'd like to add more meaning to my photos." I think you have succeeded here. Some people might say that the meaning was in the sculpture you photographed, not something that you added to it. But I think you have added something to it by the way you photographed it.

blurry and a little pixelized, but decent shot otherwise

Wonderful!!!!! Very emotional feeling, and the abstract-yet-concrete feel of it makes it seem like a college.

Cool stuff, but rather so much more than bike stuff that it doesn't rate as high in this challenge.

Very cool idea and title. The statue very well appears to be enjoying his dominion.

A sharper focus on the statue may have been a better choice.
