Didn't think this would set any records on the popular appeal chart and it didn't. It's the type of image that pulls a sub-5 in a freeestudy, so this was doing decently. Great comments from some folks that I had hoped to hear from and a hanging in the Posthumous gallery to boot. A medium score perhaps, but this hit it's target audience, which makes it a success for me.

If anyone is curious what this is, it is peeled paint on one of the columns of this abandoned hotel:

Shooting a cylindrical object up close, in low light was why I had a bit of a DOF issue at the edges. Not enough that I noticed it at the time, and a reshoot was not possible.

Great shot Steve. I really liked this. As others have mentioned, the colors really enhance this.

Good title -- I sure see the profile -- and I love the colors. I think the focus could be better.

Profoundly good. The dullish tones and selective blur give it a mysterious quality.

Looks like Ramses, as I know him, but what is it?

Definitely! Exactly what I thought when this popped up on screen, before I saw the title. Well done, nice find.
