almost an aperstan. Lacks "wow" Crop should have included all of something, maybe the circular part. Maybe closer on the right as I look at it. Still a good 6. PTL

I'm sorry, but this doesn't "move" me. No story, nothing "grabs" my eye. 6 Swash

I like shots like this that make you think what it is you are really looking at.

I like the grayscale and the subject choice, I'm just wondering if there wasn't maybe a better angle you could have shot this from.

love your title! :)
challenge -- met.
technical -- i would like to see more DOF. you've used it well, but maybe if you'd been more parallel to the metal, you could've gotten some more in focus w/out loosing the diagonal-on view. but, maybe you tried, and didn't like it. this is just my 2cents. i would've also removed the cobwebs first. :)
composition -- nice to view this at an angle. did you try cropping just a tad tighter on the left and bottom so that the wall isn't visible below the metal?

Nice B & W. The cob webs are a bit distracting. A bit more depth of field on the entire spiral might have been nice. Jacko.

Neat perspective here, love the b&w and light. Justine

I like your shot, would like to see more of it in focus.

I really like this shot as well as your title. The spider webs add to the detail.
