greetings from the critique club!!

Well, by reading your comments you can see that the subject of depth of field has the DPC'ers split on you concept here. I don't find a problem with your choice. In fact I find it compelling. I do find the crop distracting however. I think that the photo needs to end at the end of the fence line. My eyes are being pulled to far right and away your subject, the rusty pipe. saludos, russ

Wish you chould have shot this from the other side so that the rusted pipe was more "unbroken" and the chain link could have still trailed off out of focus. Good idea and good eye, though.

Godd idea, but I think the lower part of the background is distracting. I also thing the focus is too much on the fence and leaves the bar too soft.

The colors of rust and sky go together well. Crop off the bottom just below the pipe and the right before you run completely out of fence and this is a highly attractive and powerful foto. As it stands, the uninteresting overpowers the interesting. A 4.

This careful use of depth of field is perfect in your composition. The image keeps getting more interesting as I come back to it. Good one! Original.

Nice perspective and colour, but the lack of focus spoils it, and also it's just another rusty object.

nice picture. uncreative title, but no points off for that. it would be nice if the DOF was slightly larger.
