Bits & pieces of metal held together with rivets. It was something I shot anyway, without the challenge in mind, but seems to suit the topic, especially after reviewing the high placing images from the first Bits & Pieces.

Anticipated critiques:
-OOF bit at the bottom left corner.
-Can't tell what it is and/or doesn't like the abstract view of it.
-CAN tell what it is and guesses it as my entry, because it's not the first time I've entered this subject.

Post-challenge notes:
Wow, ribbon on the first challenge of the year! What a start. Hope I can keep it up. I actually had hopes of a top 10 once it stabilized, but I really didn't expect a ribbon out of this. Thanks.

Outstanding image. So sharp and smooth and interestingly composed. Great display of the challenge theme. An eye-catcher from thumb to full-size. Nice one.

Wow - can't wait to see what this is. The reflected colors are great with the blue background. I'm thinking that maybe a smaller squared crop would be as effective, the bottom piece is a bit distracting to me. Still a top pick.

01/04/2011 05:31:35 PM
At first glance I thought, "where are the bits and/or pieces". Duh! They are all riveted together!! Original and nice colors!

Very sharp & clean photo, i think the quality of the photo makes it stand out from the majority in this challenge, I'm not really into the square format, but i suppose there was little choice.
