For garbage, I didn't want a pretty, touched up photo. I wanted something that looked like it was in the trenches.

I live in Long Beach, MS, and half of my hometown was completely wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. Even now, barbed wire is strung along the railroad tracks to keep people from crossing to where all the debris is. The barbwire continues to collect trash. Took this by sticking my hand down into it to capture the shot. Edited contrast and levels.

cool perspective for this shot. the concertina wire overshadows the trash, imo, but the shot is very appealing.

Intriguing viewpoint, although I can find nothing here that is really sharp enough to hold my attention.

I think this picture could have been a bit sharper.

very cool shot idea. love the feeling of it, and the angle. the colours seem a bit off though, and the exposure isn't quite right. still a great shot.
