Nice shot Nick, should've placed higher, IMO
You're definitely in tune with what DPCers want. It won't be long before you have a ribbon ;)

Almost insect-like. Great macro; love the colors.

Great focus! I also like the contrast between the subject and the background.

Too bad, this could have been a very nice photo if you hadn't tampered with it so much. I'm rating down any photo that had been obviously digitally altered, as your had.

great idea but the rust looks abnormally too red.

Good overall, but I think the shot could be strengthened by pulling the wire away from the wood and adjusting the depth of field so that all of the barbs are in sharp focus and the wood is softly blurred.

I liked: your title, the composition, the power of the barbed wire junction, your excellent use of aperture and focus, the red rust, the quartz quality of the background.
I would have preferred greater complexity in the subject matter. There is not enough here to hold attention for long.
An 8.

Wow, was there really that much magenta in the rust or did you adjust the colors?

This is typical of the sort of image I expected to see for the challenge and I think it's one of the most sucessful. The colours and focus are excellent.

Very nice -- good use of Hue/Saturation. I like the extremely graphic quality. If it doesn't get hammered for "ooh, too photoshoppy", I'd expect to see this in the top 20.

Classic photo. I've seen some bleached wood out in the west that is very close to that shade of grey, which makes me wonder if this has been desaturated or if it really was that color.

weird colors... should have kept it natural

I like this one better than others I have looked at of the same type subject....composition is nice, and the blurred background brings focus to the main subject

I like this picture,nice red color against the b&w background, would mabey have cropped a bit more of the top to have equally much space at the top and bottom (isnt very much though) Good luck :)
