This is my first entry. I had a photo for circles challenge but missed cut off. I would like a critique of that as well if poss.

For this shot
Canon 50 prime
Iso 100
f8 at 0.8 sec
No flash
Adobe Lightroom conversion
Manually adjust , WB, tone, presence, individual HSL, sharpen, noise reduction, along with all micro adjustments within each field to achieve a high contrast low saturation high luminance gritty feel. This is my kind of style I gravitate towards.
I have obseved many challenges first to get a feel for the quality.
When a challenge is presented i take the subject quite literal, eg. Metal. My goal was to convey different colors and textures of metals that i had access to in a unique manor.
I would love any comments to better myself as a photographer and a challenge participant.

Well i didnt really expect a high score but 76th was kinda shocking. Oh well stick to my heart with my style learn frm my mistakes and keep drudging ahead. Maybe i shouldnt take auch a literal meaning to a challenge and just make it loose interpretation as this seems the only way to score. Cheers to all and thanx for the helpful comments
