What's the trick? You seem to be the only one scoring consistently high with the F828. Is there a trick to using this camera well, or that not many site members have them or what? I ask because I am currently feeling like buying one.

Incredible texture! Hard to beleive you can't reach out and touch it. Nice composition too! The diagonal chain really adds interest against the vertical boards.

great shot. you amaze me with the simplicity and perfection of the clarity of your shots and composition- so much so that I often think, how will jjbeguin approach this challenge. If that is not a compliment, what is?

Thanks too all for the votes and comments.
Edited this one on a tired old screen, did not realize how oversharpened it was until recently. Looked just fine to me then.
05/12/2004 03:21:27 AM

Great, really good definition in the wood,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2004 04:07:47 PM
it's not that this picture is amazingly original, but somehow it immediately caught my eye. Maybe it's the colour monochromity that struck me or the sharpness (on the edge though!). I think this is a schoolbook example of well spotted how nature composed a perfectly nice picture, with a little help from mankind!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2004 09:40:16 AM
Nice! 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2004 07:15:17 AM
This image has my favorite quality - reward for a secnod glance. So much detail in the wood, the assorted hardware, and yet the image isn't cluttered at all. I also like the lock / chain being off-center. I enjoyed this one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2004 10:34:59 PM
Really nice title. Perhaps there's a touch too much adjustment on the saturation. Awesome wood texture, nicely balanced composition. I think this should do well.

Slightly oversharpened I think but I like it.

Great composition and striking image. The black holes in the door/wall give your picture an element of mystery. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice, one of my favourites in this challenge. I like the straight lines created by the wood and the diagonal created by the chains.

05/06/2004 06:15:31 AM
This is my favourite photo for this challenge, I think it is awesome! I personally would have cropped it in a little from the left to take out that prominent vertical line of the edge of the wood, the darkness of it tends to pull at my eye. However it isn't anything major and I still gave it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/06/2004 06:08:23 AM
Excelent ... my favorite so far ...

Outstanding composition.

I like the texture of the wood. The hole in the top left corner is distracting. (5)

Very nice, excellent focus and detail here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 05:24:29 PM
Well done! I love the texture and detail in this. The rust looks a little surreal on my monitor and, I suspect, results from pushing the levels a bit much. Still, a nice and evocative photo. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 05:11:37 PM
Yep this ones the winner for me. The timber and the rusted iron really complement each other, and the nice diagonal line works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2004 03:41:52 PM
Lots of interesting detail here and fab textures on the timber, really like this one 8/10

This challenge had SO MANY rusted chains and locks! But the good news is that yours is great. Nice composition, lighting, exposure.

Nice one. I like the focus, light and deep color.

Very nice, artistic picture for this challenge. It's really satisfying to look at. It does look just a tiny bit over sharpened on my monitor.
