An old car seat that has been in this location for at least 15 years. Was meant to be my Green*II entry but had technical difficulties, so it's my FS for this month.

Fascinating juxtaposition of nature vs man made.

Making an artistic image out of junk in the woods is not easy. Use of diagonal composition, richness of colors, and soft light all combine to excellent effect. I wonder why the headrests are not as deteriorated as the rest of the seat.

A solid image that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it has significant impact being richly colored with excellant detail. This image would have worked as a black and white as well. A perfect demonstration of the power of properly controlled light and focus. A top ten image and a very strong contender for a ribbon. Well done.
