There's a little garbage for the assignment, but the sad commentary and title is strong and appropriate.. It's amazing and reassuring that the garden is overwhelmingly beautiful.

Nice photo, but more like "litter" than "garbage", with only one piece of trash in it.

i love the blurred water coming down into the pool. however, the long exposure time made the rest of the picture blurry as well -- too bad!

I like this. Hope this isn't a public garden -- the drainpipe is *really* ugly, more so than the trash.

It's such a sad photo. It feels so lonely. even neglect.
A place I will most probably not stop to look at. Quite the opposite - I will hurry up to pass what would seem to me like a haunted place.
Those branches however make me feel that this fountain is quite hidden from the main road so maybe I don't have to hurry.

I like the colors but they don't make me feel comfortable. The slow motion of the water on the right add to the ghostly feel. And most of all, the broken heart shape at the "legs" of the fountain just pull my eyes back to the little plastic bottle.

I suppose I am a lot more philosophycal then you actually ment this photo to be... But it works great for the challenge.
I really hope this one is not too easy to miss...

You should have focused more in on the bottle.
