    Draw your own conclusions.

    Taken at the Cleveland Lakefront this cold winter morning, which was littered with dead fish, that even the seagulls didn't seem to want to eat.

    Absolutely beautiful composition and tone. Excellent capture! Sad about the environment (but that's a completely different subject). The photo is just awesome though! Great work!

    Thanks everyone. Yes it is sad, how we treat nature, and you can see the signs and symptoms of it all around.

    Wow, awsome shot Matt. This is a very effective image. I think the dark tone and dramatic sky as well as the vingeting really add to the mood nicely. Powerful work.

    The only thing I don't care for are the bushes, I think it would make the image much cleaner and give a better view of the factory without them, but I'm sure there wasn't much you could do about them.

    outstanding job, most people would just see a dead fish, go "oh gross" and keep walking, but you turned it into a piece of story-telling artwork, amazing... always love your work, right down to the titles...
