This is the 3rd of a series a 10 shots I took of a Slinky. It is a great subject for abstract studies as the slighttest change in angle and camera position can produce a very different image.

Looks like.. a slinky? Nice shot, black and white works well for this one.

May be recognizable and even predictable, but this is still one of the most awesome shots I've ever seen!!!!!! Very high score for me!!!!

I love the light and composition. adding the criss-cross breaks up the symmetry of the coils just enough to really keep the eye working through the photo.

Good composition, but too obvious object. (6)

Very well focused picture of a slinky. It is abstract even though I can tell what it is.

Wow! I can tell what it is but love the lines. This is really a nice abstract. It kind of reminds me of an MC Esher print.

Indeed. A very nice image. Well-lighted. Too easy to blind people with that shiny metal.

a slinky image, and sorry to say, not a very good one. A messy composition, unattractive B&W. You could have used the reflections to add color, to confuse the shape. I don't enjoy the shapes and colors here, just see a slinky.

Great framing, If this was centred it would have been just another slinky photo but you've framed it beautifully.

should be bonus points for musical taste. Great shot, nice tones and contrast.
