I was impressed by this during voting, and remain so now. It is a really strong study of a mundane, every day object. You have shown the texture of the metal very well, the composition is strong, and the mono-conversion stronger still.

This image gets my vote for best abstractesque macro for the challenge. And a contender for best lighting. Brilliantly sharp... this is a photo I could hang on my wall. Bravo!

Excellent close up. Like the effective and dramatic use of lighting here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 10:34:22 PM
Love the simplicity of this. It conveys cold metal with the brushed lines and perfect silver tones. The composistion adds an element of drama to an otherwise staid subject.

Good macro of an otherwise mundane object. Good for stock photography.

It's very good. 9. And if you'd been brave enough to title it "Pop Art" instead, I'd have made it a 10.

Good contrast and sharp focus, so-so subject...6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 02:36:53 PM
Neat. The texture in the metal captured is interesting. This really strikes me as more of an 'eye candy' shot than anything else, but it is very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 02:33:46 PM
Superb tonal range - the texture of the metal is perfectly rendered.

While this is really a cool image, I am wondering what your thought process was when you read that, for this 1000th challenge, you could select the best image you've taken in the past 4, 5, 6 years or whatever. Did you immediately think of this image and say "OH YEAH, BABY!!!"? ;-)

The grain of the metal (if grain is quite the word) looks a little sharp and contrasty.
