This is a great shot! However, it doesn't speak 'texture' to me at all.

and the texture is....?

i know everything has texture, but for a challenge strictly on textures I think they may need to be more pronounced.

Lovely photo, but in looking at it I would not have guessed this was about texture.

Neat, but I want to see the texture closer up! Good job...

You're right. Texture doesn't have to be a macro. I'm sure your score is under rated.

This more scenery than a Textures photo

There are the textures in the ropes. They make lots of nice patterns. I wish this were cropped up a bit. maybe to not show te benches. that way our eyes are automatically drawn up to the bridge and the ropes. The benches really aren't adding anything for me here. I love the lighting. really created itself here, and you have placed it nicely. ~Heather~

This is a nice shot, but there's too much distraction IMO, especially the building to the right and the smaller building to the left. Textures are there, but not strongly presented I think.

Its a nice silhouette, but I dont see the "texture"

This is a nice shape against a pretty sky. But the whole point of silhouettes is they show the subject as a pure shape, without detail or texture. And texture is the point of this challenge.

Nearly great - but your composition baffles me. Why cut off the nearer bench? And having done so, why leave that gap above the bridge? get that bench in, and lose the gap and you have a composition of great balance, a kind of double leading-lines trick that would really hold the eye. Perhaps your title gives the game away though - a silhouette being almost the antithesis of texture in a photograph. However you have caught some elements, in the buildings across the river, and the sidewalk in the foreground. Strong suspicion of it being an accident, given your title, but I score this 7.

Very nice, at first I didn't think this was a good example of texture, but then I could see it.
