Beautiful old chair residing in my mothers gallery.
It rocks, even though it is not a rocking chair...

A very whimsical, bizarre image. I like the tilt of the photo, and how it makes it look as though the chair is about to fall out of the image. It helps add to the wierdness. :) Good shot.

Keep with this model. She seems to know what she's doing :)

Well done tech, but I'm too thick to connect all the dots about what this really means. Maybe it will come to me after a while.

too obscure (big diagonal, but what does it mean??!!!)

Very creative. I like the Yes and No :p

And i think the choosing of this being black and white suits this well :]

hmm, another light on white repeat since I'm to assume that not too many people have a cool raggedy looking chair that is identical to the one in the adjacent challenge. I'll tell you the same thing I told the other person who did this: "I don't think entering 2 challenges with the same subject matter is very creative, but I suppose it isn't controversial until the the 3rd when the light on white scores come in. So I won't vote down for it."

That being said...I really enjoy his image. The title, the composition, subject matter, and yes...even the diagonal. In fact, I think this image would have done better than your light on white entry.
Good luck.

Where did I see this chair before? Oh well, it appears you've got a very photogenic model =)

I like the composition of this shot. The angle works well here giving the picture a sort of surrealistic feel to it. 7
