Nice colors in this image. Although, I would've tried to get an angle of the image without the trees in the background. You have 2 focal points here. You have the odd shapes in the front, but you also have the trees in the back. Just the front shape with the clouds and sky behind it would've cut out the excess. Try to pick your subject and focus on that...

Crazy Shapes, would have been better without the trees in background, but you can hardly control that, unless you had a chainsaw in your bag :)-- great subject--

good effort, and I like the subject - it appears a llittle too dark imo - perhaps adding more contrast or lightening it some (maybe even a different choice of time of day to shoot) My other suggestion would be to use an angle that would cut out the trees from the frame. It would further the shapes dominance in the pic. Just some thoughts - that and 4 bucs will get you a cup of coffee. good effort. 5

Oh how I wish the trees weren't there! Love the shape of this sculpture, hate the distraction of the trees. Love the fact that you "get" what "shape" is - extra point for that.

i think a different perspective and crop that didn't include the trees would have made this a bit more powerful and fitting to the title. if you happen to agree with my opinion, i think it would be worth the effort to reshoot - it's a good idea.

An interesting study that results in a great mix of abstract foreground and traditional background. Is it a scultpure or a wind-chime?

Excellent. I love the way you seem to have picked dusk (dawn?) for this, as it is far more effective that full daylight.
