I really liked this edgy, kind of scary offering that just makes my mind go places wondering what happened. Terrific finish, and I was just really impreassed with the image regardless of how it did. It finished well as it should....congrats on an ecxcellent entry!

this is hauntingly beautiful. i also like tthe 'shift' of the buildings in the background, they appear to be straight out of a lucid nightmare.

Great job there neighbor. The viginetting really sucks the user into the image. Look at that score for avg(commenters). Holy crap.

So Don put the tricycle there? :-) Great shot for this challenge. Handy that you keep an abandoned slaughterhouse nearby....

Did you use a lensbaby on this? Great distorted look.

I loved the processing on this one. I wondered what the story was. Interesting focus and selective highlight. Congrats on 10th place!

The rusted bike clearly shows abandonment and a rather artsy approach to it which is my tastes. I think that the vignetting is a little darker than I'd like to see it but, it's a great shot!

I really love this. Trikes -- the rustier, the better. Vintage tones are perfect, house in background is in just the right field . great work!!! 10
