good title!

Nice try. I'm sorry though, the content is simply uninteresting. I can't give more than a 2

I think the title is really good for the photo. It is a tad overexposed and soft on the fence, which actually detracts from the garbage inside. I know AF is hard to use on such a busy subject, but you can ompensate a bit by stopping the lens down to give a greater depth, and, effectively give you a better margin f error for focus.

The church makes an inteeresting subject, and the dumpster in teh fence make an intersting project. Pick one. Also, could you have possibly taken this from a different angle to reduce shadow on teh left? (5) MarkRob

While not technically perfect enough to be a winner, the choice of subject matter definetly illicited an amused emotional reaction. Have to give you an extra point for that.

i don't like snapshot photos (and my new scale is 1 if i don't like it, 10 if i like it, so you get 1)

would be better with a bit less shade

This photo made me laugh, shame about the shadow though. Fluffy

Looks like some kind pf shrine

I'm going dizzy trying to look the the fence at the garbage dumpster. The shadow on the left is distracting. Your focus and clarity are really good. The detail in the fence is great. The angle and framing/cropping are also really good. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

Hey - I've got a similar thing as I still was living in Berlin and I always asked myself, why do they have to lock up even the things, we throw away! Crazy society!
Good shot. For me it would be better, if you wouldn't have cut the upper edges, so that I could see the whole fence and maybe if you'd have taken the pic from a bit more to the right side, so that I can see both fences and the shadow of the tree on the right hand side wouldn't be distracting so much. Just an idea... 6 - KAOS

An amusing image - does it get an armed guard at night?

Could you have backed up and gotten the church steeple too? Would have made a nice contrast of image.

Great Title!

Why on earth? (This dumpster contains, *valuable trash*, son.) Nice piccy. seasick - 6.

I wonder how many people are going to ask why this is locked up like this. Guess no one's been dumpster diving :) I don't like the shadow on the side. But funny picture. 6 Jubei
