Tone is beautiful, an enchanting Spanish moss and iron composition -

Ahhhh, a lensbaby, I wondered how you got that great effect within the rules! I gave it a 9 BTW - I think I should get a lensbaby one day - great show

i love the dream like feel of the shot - with the odd blur of the fence on the right to the 'blown' grasses captured by the fence

I like this shot. The shallow DoF isolates a clear and well placed focal point, the slightly warm monochrome adds a nostalgic feel and the repeating pattern creates a sense of motion. Well done.

Great idea and a good result!

The shallow DOF, b/w and slightly grainy look makes this a nice image to me. The angle which you captured this in addition to the lights in the background makes it even better.
I'm not sure if you put the weeds there yourself but I love it regardless. It would have been a totally different image otherwise.

Absolutely nothing to deduct from me - 10+

The slight blur really gives it that 'dreamy' feeling.

The moss blur drives my eyes nuts as I struggle to focus on the iron, but I really like this shot!

The DOF is perfect in this image. I love the detail in the iron as well as the texture in the moss.

Yeah, I love this. My only question is why does the right third have a touch of motion blur. Love the grain in the mid tones. Nice use of diagonal composition to support the centered composition of your focal point. Some may wonder about the left strip of negative space but I like it, gives more depth.
