I love this image it is far from boring because it has lots to look at. Much to busy (in a good way) to show "BORED" I think photographers can be bored and take extremely interesting images that are Boring or show being bored. If you were bore that doesn't matter. Your images needs to show being bored.

Anyway...If this challenge was about machines. I would rate it higher than what I rated it for this challenge.

The mechanical part of the image I like, the background is a little distracting......5

Beautiful detail! Lighting, decent bokeh, DOF makes a statement...
Your title demonstrates your attempt to leverage the challenge topic--just couldn't get geared up for this one, eh? :-)
(It will be interesting to discover your location in the photo notes. I see that a bolst has been applied to keep the machine from being operated. Historical park, perhaps?)

Nice lighting, composition and perfectly sharp, even though the title helps, it just doesn't scream boredome to me.

I Like the composition, very greasy picture, but not a good match with bored.....

really good photo, but the title is the only thing that links it to boredom.

Very nice use of light to bring out the texture. I don't know if it suggests boredom to me though

Although you have a great shot, I dont believe it fits the challenge. I mean, if it werent for the title, I would never associate this with boredom. Sorry...
Better luck next time and be more creative.

Actually this quite the beautiful shot. Technically I think it's the best of the challenge

I love the title. And I'm a fan of concept shots, unfortunatley without the title this just dosen't fit the challenge. But I do love the shot, and I really did laugh out loud at the title.

L8r,

Nice shot. The title is why I scored you a 5. Otherwise I would have given it a 3 for not meeting the challenge, nice stretch:)
