***Greeetings from the Critique Club!***

i realize that i commented on your photo during the challenge, but was somewhat obtuse as all i said was "interesting". :) let me elaborate!

first off, i really like the framing of the shot (as opposed to the subject). the use of the wheels "cut-out" (or whatever you want to call it :) sets up the alignment of the shot. i'm a big stickler for what the edges of your shot are doing, and i think you've handled your edges well. actually i think the "alignment" aspect is the meat of the shot. the "wheel" subject comes afterward, which i like. its not a straight-forward "wheel shot".

further, i think that the sepia tone helped to both reduce the amount of distracting elements and to focus on the darkness of the wheels.

as a side-thought i also find the layering to be fairly effective.

when i look at a photo i usually run through a bunch of alternate "what-if" questions. and with yours i have a hard time coming up with anything that i might have done differently. usually i think of things such as point-of-view, contrast, colors, edges...perhaps the only thing i might have an issue with would be the amount of texture...maybe its too textured... (honestly i dont think it is, but i'm trying here;). I wonder what would happen if you turned the camera a bit more to the right and got more of the sky and thus pushing the line of sight to the left of the shot...you might get more white-space (the sky) and the holes would then appear to "expand" (from left to right) - email me if this doesn't make sense :) i'll send you a diagram of what i'm talking about.

overall a very "interesting" shot ;)

Nice job of framing within the frame. I think that would make a good challenge even. Think I'll suggest it!

Very creative! I like the composition very much. I have always been intrigued with seeing objects through other objects and like that you were able to carry it through twice. I like the neutral colors as well. Good luck on the challenge. I hope you are one of the ribbon winners!!
