Challenge: Furniture II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2009
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Lensbaby Composer
Location: Amsterdam

There are lots of interesting houseboats along the canals in Amsterdam. This chair is sitting on one of them. And yes, this was shot with the challenge in mind. The whitish things are seed pods - they were everywhere. Looked like it was snowing at times.

Pretty darn sure this won't make the top 10. :-) Could be bottom 20%, though! Hoping for maybe a "nicht drei" from Paul if he gets a chance to vote this one. Other than that, pretty sure it won't be most viewers' cup of tea and VERY sure I can't match Andi's 6+ lensbaby score.

And yes, I know better, but I really kinda like it.

Thanks for all the post-challenge comments. And what a bizarre vote distribution, huh?

Oh, Deb, you've done it again. The vote distribution just shows most people didn't know what to think of it. I didn't vote on it, but count me in the upper reaches. :)

I absolutely love this. If I had voted, this would have gotten an 8 from me. Obviously, I'm a LB fan, but the composition and colors are also awesome. Excellent eye!

I didn't vote in this challenge but I should would have given this higher than a 5! That looks like one very well used chair. Too bad you didn't get to go sit in it - looks comfy! Great find :)

Deb how do you make dull into art? I wouldn't have taken a picture of this as I would of thought dull you look and thru your eyes it becomes a photo of art. You do rock.

The petals in the water make this look like a milky way! Sweet.
