Thank you very much for the positive comments. I entered close to the end of the challenge, picking my picture from what I had taken during the week, with no knowledge beforehand of the weeks challenge; and sent it with no editing. I was very pleased to be given such high marks overall when I had put no thought or extra effort into searching for the right shot... in fact, not even knowing the topic.

Nice rendition of chain and flower. There were other attempts in this challenge to deal with the lighting on rust and flowers. This is the only one to really pull it off. I just find the composition itself a little unsatisfying. Some greater harmony in the curves of flower and chain would help.

A 6.

Nice contrast between teh delicate flower and the rusty chain (?). Good detail and color.

I really like this, so I have to point out the one thing that bothers me, and that is the spider web? string? fuzz line between the topmost petal and the green leaf behind it.

How very nice of you to bring us some colors besides all the rust-red. Great shot imho. Very crisp.

A few people tried this kind of shot but didn't get the composition, colour saturation or DOF like you did. My vote for a top 10 shot. Good luck!

So delicate. I like the paradox!

Technically very nice in its color and depth of field. I like the idea of the subject, but because of the cropping it would have been unapparent without the title.
