A little example here as to why I like rust.
I just believe some things look a bit dull and colourless without it !!
I must agree Mick, the right hand ring does look boring. - gary
You have converted me Mick. Regards Jamie
The best olympic rings so far!
Now I challenge you to find the other three
Two rings. One rusty, one not...
Very appropriate for a day like today! As Annete says: We challenge you to find the other three... IB
Great image. Very disarming.
Where are the other three?
I accept the challenge.
Must find more rings !!
Now I challenge you to find the other three
Volunteer needed??????? Have Russian gold ring with 7 diamonds, not in use, very good condition, free to good home,lol!!!!!! Ania
The LHS ring certainly does have "character" compared to the RHS ring Mike - maybe a recycled teething ring ? - fine shot ...Bill
I think I have to agre with you, especially in this i mage!
Another three and your home and dry for gold, Mick: that newish untarnished ring does lack character.
couldn't have said it any better Mick, adds character and you found a good one.
Mick, it looks like you've got the start of an Olympic symbol here.
A good contrast between the two rings against some super texture ~ and of course rings are in at the moment.
You are so right Mick, but there again I would not dare to argue with you Love the contrasting rings, especially that nice clean one! A very good shot Mick with superb clarity and detail, you can even see the paler ring shapes on the ground where they have 'rested'.
I agree Mick, much prefer the model on the left,
I agree ,the one on the right does look a bit off colour.a great shot and I am sure that you will find another thre somewhere soon.
RH one looks like a Saturday night hangover
Brilliant shot Mick, only 3 to go to complete the set
I don't hold with this five-rings lark, Mick.
Ultimately the ring that matters is the ring on the doorbell from the men in white coats
I do rather like your composition, the cracked paving and the algae and the one-with-one-without set-up. A Stevie Wonder for our times?????!!!!!
P.S.: In view of the severe admonishment administered last week I thought I ought to warn you that I had planned to post another picture from Fairfield Church in Kent next Friday that includes three of those white fluffies whose identity we disputed recently. Since I took the photo before you drew my attention to the small print of paragraph 3b of Rule 1 (of which I did not have a copy, as previously explained) I hope my action might be sanctioned so long as I promise not to do it again . . .

Love that. I was thinking of the ghost of rust past. In any case a pale, wasted shadow of the Real Thing.
A fine example of how dull things are without a little creative ageing and decay. It applies to people too!
A stunning example of awareness, the image could be a metaphor for many of life's little observations.
Quote: It applies to people too!
Yes, I'm with Lynne on this however, I seem to only be getting the 'ageing and decay' without the creative bit!
Lovely shot Mick
I have to say "I agree" - great bit of contrast here Mick
Someone commented on one of my recent rusty uploads as to what was the appeal of it - we'll, this answers the question! The ring on the left wins hands down!
Must agree with you Mick, good comparison.
Like the way you've put the rings on a diagonal, adds a little more to the shot.
Aye...you do have a point, Mick. I find it easier and more rewarding to photograph older roses than fresh roses.
Although I bet Olympians would rather grab on to Roman rings like the one on the right
Super composition. And something of a departure for your good self. All the better for it.
Your comment certainly has a ring of truth to it, Mick
Oooo.....just the thing to tie Jasper up to!
See silly reply on your comment to My Pet Jasper
You could argue that the non rusty one stands out more, I'll get me coat
I'm wearing my coat, and will be with you in maybe aproximately 3 months!! maybe xmas
Still think it is a good image Mick with the old versus old!
This picture certainly proves your point Mick, well observed.
!!!!....you're so right !!!!!
good to see the old among the new
I'm sure the ring on the right will resemble the ring on the left when you go back again in a year or two. A good contrast between old and new
now we have the proof
Mick, like your idea here, great contrast between new and old........I like the old, some things are just ment to be.
Excellent shot Mick. You have to have a bit of patience; the one on the right is just a beginner
Just keep pouring water over the other one lol. after heating it with a blow lamp it will get there one day, very amusing, regards Leon.
The one on the right is far superior and adds a great deal to the image whilst the rusty one does need to be cleaned up a bit. That floor is a bit dirty and cracked. You could so easily rectify this is ps6 or some other editing suite..... Go on ..you know you want to.
YUP!! You are right .... the rust is much more interesting
