Greetings from the Critique Club:
This image was one of my favorites in the challenge. It certainly meets the challenge definition and is quite original and interesting. I particularly liked the textures and the way they help to draw the eye up and around the curve. The compostion is nice and the softer focus at the edges does not distract from the stronger inner surface of the curve. The DOF throwing the background out of focus all together supports this as well. The way you have used the light to support the motion up and around the textured curve gives the image a nice depth and a lasting quality. Thanks for the image.

Nice abstract. Smooth motion of the shape with the rough texture of the rust. I think I may have liked to seen the color of the rust your title suggests.
Good sharp focus. I really like this.

This is A perfect example of Less is More-- 10++

Good shot and use of DOF. I think this would have been nice in color or toned to go with the rust theme. Also, it would have been good to try to avoid the darker background detail at the bottom perhaps by shooting upward a bit more. Then you might have even included the top of the wider arc.

very nice composition.

I think this would have worked better in color

Lots of class in that shot, I can't give you a single reason why but i really like it. I think it had to the quality, the intangible qality (8)

Nice angle and great textures. I wouldn't mind seeing a colored version after the challenge is over.

I like the background... Nice work.

One of the best captures of the challenge that wasn't a set-up still life. Lovely detail and composition. 9

I shot a similar photo for the "Simplicity" challenge, but haven't entered it yet. I may try something else now that I see your entry for this challenge. It's a nice shape, and the rusty texture adds to the effect.

I would have cropped this thighter and formatted the photo as a landscape, rather than a portrait. I believe you could have gotten 640X480 pixels to make it appear larger.

Other than that, great texture and shape combine to make this an interesting photo of an ordinary object.
