For those curious about what it might be, yes, it is a tiny dam. Well, I wouldn't even call it a dam but it is at least used to block the water. (I think it is somehow used for directing salmon to a counting device of some sort. Or at least, that's my theory.)

I've been figuring out what this is from the very first moment, but I can't. maybe it's water, but that wouldn't make any sense. it looks like a close up of ... well.. something! with no title there's nothing to get a clue from.
great use of DOF and B&W. bumping you to a 9

I've came back to your photo and gonna bump it to 10. can't help but loving your photo! added to my faves!

The perpsective you chose, along with the monotone conversion, give your shot an abstract quality. I like how you focused on shapes an lightness tones. 9.

Interesting light textures, color, focus, and composition all excellent. But what is it?

Beautifully processed pic. I like the grain and the tone, but I cannot figure out what I am looking at.

I keep coming back to look again. I like this image, but my inability to determine what I see intrigues me. I'll check back after voting closes to see if I'm right.

I stared at this for at least 3 minutes, and I still have no idea what I am looking at.

i have no idea what this is but it looks cool and i like the colour.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not really sure what this is - I keep looking but not sure. The shallow DOF is executed well, and I like the gray tones, also the textures. Just not sure what it is.

Did you forget to put a title on the shot? That might hurt your score but who knows. Anyway, like this shot a lot, the symbol reminds me of a sign of a local TV station. Composition is good and nice tonal range, good contrast. Enough for an 8 from me.

Nice abstract. (At least to me at this moment it is an abstract as I am trying to figure out what am I looking at.) Very nicely composed and thumbs up for making me spend 2 minutes on this one trying to figure out what it is:-) I'll have to get back to this one!

Good lighting and composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.

...a very intriguing image to say the least...beautiful contrast, light and tone...it looks like an aerial view of a grand waterfall, then it doesn't...very interesting!

No Title? That's a 1st I guess ;)

What is it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 10:38:37 AM
I have no idea what this is, but I really like it. I'm a bit fan of abstracts and this one is excellent. The composition, and mix of shapes, lines, and mixture of dark/light work really well. Great shot. 10
