Excellent contrast really makes this scene interesting. Doen't seem to be too much whites but the framing really helps to make the composition great.This would make for an interesting postcard. "10"

I loved thid photo...but the cables....mm

I really like this shot, the only thing I don't like about it is the powerlines, yet they draw your eye down into the coach. Nice pic!

great subject! Good use of negative space. I'd have been sorely tempted to clone out the wires, LOL. Guess there was nothing you could really do to eliminate them.
I think my only serious suggestions would be to increase contrast and sharpen slightly more post-resizing to bring out some of the interesting texture in the coach & field, and also to try for more contrast in the sky; the sky contrast might be enhanced by creative use of channel mixing during grey conversion, or a polarizer might have brought out more contrast in the original shot.

I like this picture very much. However I wish you would've concentrated more on the wheels. Great picture and composition, my vote 7!
04/12/2004 03:51:11 PM
when you photoshop out those wires it will be a great photo!
04/12/2004 03:06:13 PM
nice job. seems slightly out of focus. It's a shame the power lines are there.
04/11/2004 11:32:58 PM
this is quite amazing-very wizard of oz when Dorthy meets the Fortune Teller...nice color and comp

I like the composition. But I think I'd prefer the pic in either full color or all BW. Possibly a sepia tone. Good effort. 9

Nice compositin and quirky subject well done
04/11/2004 03:29:02 AM
Very nice picture. The black and white really enhances the subject.
04/11/2004 02:16:13 AM
if only the power (telephone?) lines were not on the picture.

it's a nice shot, and one can tell that u thought of the composition, but somehow it does not work that well... i understand that u left a lot of blank space as perspective for the arrow... but... the carriage is somehow directed the other way... so... there is a paradox which does not work too well... and the title could have been more inventive...

I don'r get bored of old rusty wheels and b&w images, especially when they are of this standard. I guess if it wasn't basic editing you'd have removed the power lines. If the location isn't too far away from you I'd be back when there is a more powerfull sky, I think a dark thunderous sky would add to this. I do like the positioning of the 'stagecoach' and the way it seems to be dipping out of the shot.
04/10/2004 01:00:22 PM
Good shoot!
04/10/2004 12:22:29 PM
great shotall round , I especially love the framing. 10

Nice old coach.. Nicely done.
04/09/2004 03:48:03 PM
This is cool. Nice crop, good B & W.
04/09/2004 02:59:40 PM
Very rustic and charming too. Interesting how the arrow points to the right and there is space for the eyes to go beyond the picture.
04/09/2004 09:03:02 AM
Black and white works really well with this image. Composition is really good, With the openess of the image one can instantly feel the abandonment of the carriage. Hope this image does well.

This is a great one. I'm a little bit uncomfortable giving this a high score, because the way i understood the challenge was that the focus ought really be on wheels, not just stuff that happened to have wheels. But ignoring my own interpretation of the spirit of the challenge, I must confess this is one of my favourite pictures. In fact, if you don't mind, I might print a copy and shove it on the wall. The only slight, not criticism but observation, is that I might have been tempted to get rid of the telephone / power cables. I know the constraints of the challenge forbids this, but i think it work be worth doing if you wanted to prepare a portfolio. Aside from this, I think it is technically flawless and a beautiful picture. Even though i don't think it fits the challenge comPLETEly (but it does to an extent) I wouldn't forgive myself if i cast any other score but 10. So 10 it is. Well done. Brilliant, beautiful image.

Nice road sign,9.
04/08/2004 01:56:11 PM
Definitely the best of the old wheel variety.
04/08/2004 10:53:20 AM
highwires ruin it. otherwise nice. 7
04/07/2004 11:13:32 PM
@#$%!& power lines! A couple steps to your left and you would have missed them. Great shot otherwise.
04/07/2004 11:03:18 PM
i really like this. you can really feel the desolationthe composing is really nice - horizon dead center (and visible thru the windows), subject nestled in the corner and power lines complementing the top half of the subject ... well done.
04/07/2004 02:45:07 PM
I really like this photo! : )
04/07/2004 02:35:07 PM
Great subject. Can't help but think a better angle could have eliminated the power lines.
A deep, crisp, depth of focus might also improve image.
04/07/2004 11:07:19 AM
Wires distract from the picture, wish you could've moved the angle of the coach to the right a little bit to be able to frame out the wires and the road.
04/07/2004 10:54:58 AM
Nice relic that works well in balck and white. It would be more effective with an aggle that would eliminate the telephone wires. Need a little more breathing room on the left edge.
04/07/2004 10:32:56 AM
Nice Composition, I would have lowered the horizon a little, just above the wheels and change the angle to get rid of the power lines. That would have made the print timeless

My personal favorite for this challenge - 10
