As I was leaving the beach I almost walked right by this rusted chain. I was actually returning to my car after shooting some seascapes. I thought it would fit the challenge nicely.

I have to admit, I was sick of viewing the chain pictures. This is totally different, though! This is truly an amazing photo.

litterally well framed with an amazing backdrop!

Pretty, yet somehow disturbing. A hint of decay in paradise.

With better focus on the chains this could have been a winner, very nice shot.

Thias picture is good; (the chain looks a bit redundant) and the blurred view through the aperture is telling; leaving the chain in sharp focus, and the
viewers to make what they will of it.

Beautiful picture but seems a bit too blury for distant rocks and ocean. Almost seems to distract my eye from focusing on the subject.

Nice composition--I can feel the day.

nice composition

Too often I have found backgrounds distracting and wish they had been hidden. This one I believe should be brought into focus. f60 maybe. Still a 6, the foreground is very attractive as well.

Very pleasant take on the challenge here. Good composition. Perhaps a bit more depth of field to take in that wiindow view which appears to be scenic. The border might be a bit heavy for the image, but not bad.

sharp, crisp, good composition - the angle is nice - meets challenge
05/05/2004 06:39:05 PM
we had a similar idea, the rusted chain brings a fitting connotation
