Your image could use more saturation the rust looks blah!

The repetition in this is great, I love the centered, forced perspective you've chosen. The colors are almost monochromatic - I think I'd highten that with a little bump on the contrast. Did you experiment with off center angles too? It's the perfect subject for this challenge. Good luck.

Excellent composition & title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2004 03:42:16 PM
good composition and idea needs a bigger aperture for more dept of field
good image though

Great composition. The contrasting symmetry of the foreground threads and the rows of nuts make for a very interesting image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent composition! I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2004 07:42:23 PM
Nice shot. I'm thinking a bit more contrast, less light and perhaps saturate the blue tones a bit more? Good work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2004 07:33:05 PM
Love the symmetry and the perfect focus on the main subject. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2004 04:10:13 AM
Very cool, nice DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2004 11:20:52 PM
I think if you increased the DOF, it would be an amazing photo IMHO. They are all lined up like solders. Nice capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2004 06:00:55 PM
I've always liked items lined up like this. Good Job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/07/2004 05:45:46 PM
I think this shot would have been interesting to see from a diagnoal perspective..but viery nice just the same.

I like this. The order, symmetry. colors.

Solidarity for the legions of rusting bolts. I support them. However, the top could have been cropped so that we would believe the legions were even far more. Its like pictures of protesters at any demonstration, we do not want an accurate count.

"The Rusted Army". I don´t like the armies, but I do like this photo. I give you a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 03:25:22 PM
I like your regimented rows here. They add interest to an otherwise quiet image. And the shallow depth of field works well here. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 02:03:19 PM
great angle for the shot, i gotta give it a prefect score! good job!
05/06/2004 01:46:53 PM
love the sysmetry while at the same time keeping it interesting through proportion and focus change. sort of shows that deterioration applies to all
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 12:00:12 PM
Good use of perspective & DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 09:14:58 AM
an army of nuts! i like their posture. i wonder if it would be possible to compose a shot that captured the same sort of lineup without the front edge or the background showing at the top of the photo? nice shot anyway

That has to be one of my favorites for this challenge .:10:.

7 I like this one. Interesting to view...good dof! Needs a bit more saturation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 06:44:09 PM
Good composition and use of depth of field
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice composistion!

05/05/2004 06:00:44 PM
Very nice shot, I love the DOF up front on this one. Great focus and an overall interesting image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 04:19:01 PM
Needs a bit more DOF
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 03:49:47 PM
nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 12:10:21 PM
A nutty army, bolt upright...what is this? I would have liked to have seen the front row positioned lower in the frame. Good DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 11:13:57 AM
Your point of focus in front is good, with gradual blurring to the back to give impression of distance. The bolts remind me of army soldiers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 11:13:43 AM
A great shot, I just think it would look better without the foreground, still a beautiful pic.

Good work

05/05/2004 05:39:10 AM
nice! ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 04:16:25 AM
I like this photo but I think it might have been a little more effective if you took the shot from an angle which eliminated the flat portion facing the camera and focused on just showing us the rows of bolts and nuts.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 02:16:41 AM
nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 01:01:56 AM
