    The last one I give a tip of the hat to Sherman Banks for making me think about images differently. I am interested in how these will be recieved. It seems most folks here enjoy images with straight forward subject matter.

    Thanks for lookin'

    These are pretty neat...they look just like modern paintings.

    I know the first and third are pictures of rusting objects, but can't figure out what the second one is...looks like you took this picture from up high.

    Actually found these images refreshing.

    Pft. Straight-forward subject matter is overrated. I like #1, simply because it's a very interesting take on a "sunset".

    My favourite is #3, because it's detailed yet has clearly defined lines and structure. And saturated colours. I'd love to see a good print of that (using the ProPhoto colour space, of course).

    Fantastic abstracts here David! I love them all :thumbup:! Very interesting interpretation of the first. I would not have seen it that way had you titled it something generic.

    I love the contrast in color and the unique textures you have going on in the second. I don't know what I'm looking at and I'll ask you don't reveal it this time!

    The images you used for the last shot are perfect in the series and a very well done play on lines.

    Great work!! And like Samanax said, very refreshing to see something different like these.

    Based on this comment alone, they don't do anything for me at all. I am not an artisitc photographer, carrying my camera around looking for the "shot of the day" is not what I'm interested in. It would be a different story if someone said to me, "go capture rustic images for $500", then I would become creative.

    If anything, the last one sparked interest because I was trying to work out what it was.

    Wow, I have absolutely no idea what I am looking at in any of these, and I think that is why I like them. I have a fondness for abstract art, so thank you for sharing.

    3 is my fave - a well framed, geometric collage. Keep it up!

    David, you are incredibly creative. I love that about your pictures. And I always enjoy your titles. Pic #1 made my head spin a little because I was looking for a way to see a sunset in that rust. Beautiful colors. Pic #2 I had to spend some time trying to figure out what it is. It definitely looks like it was shot from up high because of the shadow falling on the water (?). It just feels so HIGH up that I can't quite imagine what you were shooting from (a helicopter??). Pic #3 is also very nice. I love it as a collage. I wouldn't be surprised to see this framed in an office building somewhere. Nice work.

    I LOVE these! Very abstract and artistic. The colors are SO great! #3 is definitely my favorite. It looks like something I would hang in my condo :) Nice work!

    i like #2 the best, and i think...correct me if im wrong...it;s a shot of a dock or pier or just concrete next to a body of water...i see the corrugated steel, and grass growing in those little nooks where the concrete has deteriorated next to the steel...
    nice one! :D

    blank, could you explain how BJ's interest in how the images would be received ruined them for you?
    i read your post a couple times, and maybe im soft, but im just not understanding...thanks!

    These absolutely suck.

    Seriously, why couldn't I have taken these?

    Nice work man, very unique and the edit to #3 is my favorite.
