The chain of locks can be found in almost all the gates at the parks in Orange County. I always thought this many locks to lock one gate must be a result of someone's Proud Owner ship of whatever is that they are locking!

lock = pride?
good photo of locks and chain, and nice bokeh, but where is the pride?

interesting. I don't like the "master" signs and the blue is too strong for greenish-yellowish bacground. But creative

This is an interesting study. The DOF is good. I think the black of the frame is distracting. Maybe a bit too wide for my taste. I think I'd crop just above that top lock and leave out that rectangular metal shape at the top. More negative space to the left would have worked a bit better as it has too much of a "centered" sense to it. I think the focus would use a bit of tweaking as well.

This is a great photo - very characterful - and I've scored it 8. I like the way the light falls on that rusty chain and the background has a pleasing bokeh. But, I would have scored this higher without the wide border, I think. (Have been relying on too big a border on some of my submissions too and seeing yours helps me understand that it doesn't always enhance the photo as much as we think, but instead creates too much of a distraction).

I don't get how this relates to pride.

what's the point?

I fail to see the connection with pride.

What does this have to do with pride?

I don't understand what a lock has to do with pride?
