Three days before this picture was taken, I had prepared a tuna sandwich. Unfortunately, I left the can sitting on the kitchen counter. The tuna started to decay. When I finally saw the nasty can, I threw it outside. A few hours later, I went outside to take some wave pictures and noticed the can on the front porch. The stark contrast between the decaying tuna and the bright label caught my eye. The gray concrete enhanced the pictures color as well. I didn't think much of the picture until I uploaded it to my computer.

Sorry you placed so low! I really liked this composition, this was probably the wrong challenge to enter this in.

Well, the technique is good... even if the tuna is bad. 4

This one doesn't really do anything for me. I don't see extraordinary at all.

As it stands this is a good still life, well exposed, in focus, and with an interesting composition... But extraordinary?

it's hard finding something that isn't extraordinary... most things are pretty impressive when you take a good look... but this isn't! not by itself nor as a photograph... 1.

um, ok, are we going for extraordinarily smelly? wierd photo, doesn't make sense without a title, doesn't evoke "decaying tuna"

I've given people a lot of leeway on extraordinary, but this to me is in no way extraordinary. Sorry, unless your intent was brown.

Nice colors and good texture on the gray area. I though the extraordinary was supposed to be the visual part - but I guess an extraordinary odor works too... too bad you couldn't attach a "scratch and sniff"....

Very nice photo, but exessively ordinary. I have one of these on my stove at home waiting to be thrown away.

Seems mundane to me.
