Fascinating in its simplicity.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I like how 'limited' this image is - by that I mean controlled, constrained, framed, defined. I'm always fascinated how we can get more structure out of the OOF focus areas than the areas we have focussed upon - this phenomenon ensures that the periphery of the image isn't lost but contributes to the image as a form of natural framing.

Critical stuff: There is a downside to constraining an image to this degree - the intrinsic interest level is quite low and I fear that this is an image that will fascinate few. The inanimate nature of your subject makes it hard to create any story and I imagine the voting hasn't been too kind.

Overall: The image is very good at what it is very good at! It is effective in its own way, but it isn't an image I can image returning to just to look at.
