WOW thank you everyone for the after-comments Im so proud that people enjoyed this image as much as I do and that is so important to me..

Mr Graphicfunk - A gentleman, thank you sir
SandyP - You do great works bless you
sher9204 - A legend, Im very touched you like my work, I LOVE your work also, thank you

it was my first real play around with the D50 and that Sigma 105 MACRO I saw this shot as I was out with my little girl in the park, Im very happy with a top 20 because there was so many wonderful photos in the challenge and a top 4% for me is brilliant but I am far more happy to see that people enjoy the picture and add to favorite also.. thank you everyone who took the time and effort to comment.

Very striking effect! I love how the light on the blurred chain links look like sparkles. Congratulations on a top 20 finish with this one.

Great pattern from the chains and the sparkle however I think this may have worked better in a vertical format to emphasize the linear aspect of the chains.

Creative idea. The reflections are a bit distracting to the main subject.

Very nice. I love the highlights, emphasized by the bokeh. The background works well, too -- has texture and form to it, but not too distracting (to my eye, anyway).

Just back for some comments...
Clever.. creative.. whimsical and unique! This photo would have stood on it's own very well I think, but the title adds just one more piece to it. Love the background lines that are perpendicular to the chains hanging down, and the perfect focus on the chain. One of my favorites from this challenge! Nicely done and good luck!

Very nice. IMO you have captured the shallow dof. Nice composition as well.

This is a great picture, I like everything about it. It fits the challenge, is well composed, nice colors, lovely reflections, I will be very dissappointed if this one does not ribbon. It should, even if mine does not ! (10)
