a flower i made out of a saw blade, a wire wheel, piece of rebar, tin can lids, and an old chain...surrounded by some fake flowers. cropped, resized, cloned in some missing parts of the background, sharpened a bit, darkened the background, dodged some shadows around the inner part of the saw blade and on "leaf", and then air brushed the same area to smooth it out, and added a frame

this is my first picture (for the challenges) i've taken since i just got my new/first DSLR camera on tuesday...i have lots of learning to do with it...but these challenges should be great for getting me to try new things...

How did you think to combine one of my favorite subjects (the rust) with flowers, which I don't give a hoot about? One of the most original entries in this challenge. Gotta give this one a high vote and a fave.

Such an awesome idea... the saw blade looks like a kid in school who didnt quite fit in, but tried really hard to. Great shot.
