An image which is somewhat way off my radar, it is one of those 'I saw it I captured it' type of photograph.

Thank you for all your open and honest comments and votes following yesterdays upload 'Money for...."

Well it's the weekend again, the weather at the moment is rather murky and cold, so a few mugs of coffee before my face kicks in and everything else behind it, before I even contemplate venturing anywhere.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Like this a lot, it's amazing how sculptural everyday items can be.
The oof area to the left works less well for me than to the right of the focus area. I'd like to see a square crop from the centre-right, which for me would concentrate attention on the folds and angles, and that diagonal.

This is a fantastic image with a great DOF that adds so much.
The rectangle is a better shape than square which has been suggested, because it allows you to progress through the image and appreciate the curves of the chainlink. The focal point is totally correct for this image with the FG slightly blurred and the BG even more so.The mono really adds to the feel as well.
This deserves a lot of credit, very well done.
Kindest Regards
