Cool shot but that 446th place is just plain wrong.

Congrats on the local competition award. :)

This is beautiful - too many left brain voters thought "But...what IS it?"

Congrats on the posthumous red!! Very underrated image. Interesting to see the vast gap between the commenters' score (7) and your overall score.

Oh, another sadly under rated (I'll include my own in that list (hehe)) Still beautiful, well done glad you got a posthumous ribbon.

That title made me realize that this is an example of oxidation putting Picasso to shame. I see them, the redheads. I have a ribbon for them.

Nice, a photo of "real ART"! lol. The texture looks like a steel/metal wall or plate that has been stripped of paint. I'm not sure how to comment on this, positively or negatively, sorry!? -BB

What a fantastic abstract - I presume it's rust. The colours are beautiful, well observed :)
