I don't agree with some of the other comments. I think the simplicity of the clothespins without clothes makes the photo more, not less interesting. You EXPECT to see clothes with clothepins, so the lack of clothing make it more interesting. And it doesn't looked "staged" to me, not any more than any other photo in this challenge. And I also think the size works for this particular composition. Okay, I can see that it would work in a larger format, but this size works too. If I had a suggestion at all, it would be maybe that the pins could be a bit more sharply focused, to make the image pop a bit more. Like the pic a lot.

Thanks for the comments. I did have some clothing with the pegs but it looked too distracting so went with just pegs. I was under the 640 because I could not get 640 and still be within the mb. limits set for comp.

202!!! You were robbed - this photo has great simplicity about it that I think is neat. Bright, shiny, noiseless images are the rage here at DPC, but this is a gem.

Keep thinking, keep shooting, and don't mind being different. We need your creative input in our community.

this would have had more visual appeal for me if the clips were actually holding on to something. It would seem less staged.

Nice idea. An additional element, like an article of clothing might add some needed interest.

Im sure you have already got this comment but you need to use the full 640 image size. I like the image.
