Well, this was entered for just a bit of fun. The lighting is not that good, nor is the composition but I do feel this is definitely ĎSymbolicí. Even though I had the shot lined up with level horizons in the view finder I found the image was quite skewed after taken. I wonder whatís going on with that?? This would explain why I have to rotate and crop so often.
A single light source from the left (a 500 watt portable work light) which is why the lighting is a little harsh and the noticeable shadows (all which will be causes for my predicted low score). I only had a few minutes to take and process the shot. Set the timer, raced over bits of building materials and held a black jacket behind the shot. I had a yellow tape measure that I wanted to use as part of the prop but couldnít find it (until I put my gear away) so I added the Araldite instead. Itís not really a building tool but I felt there needed to be a third item. I may get a bit of time to redo the shot in a few days and so will try better lighting and put that drill cable behind the wall. If not, this is what it is and Iíll be happy if it finished in the 5ís.

5 minutes to go and this looks like it will be my first challenge entry that didn't get a comment during voting! At least this is some sort of achievement :-/
