    For some reason I can't login to my old account so I had to make a new one. But anyways, this is a photo of a drain on a sink. Please rate harshly because I don't learn anything if you try to be nice.

    This was taking with a Nikon D80 with a 50mm at F8, ISO 100, and the flash at 1/8 power.

    Why? What are you trying to convey to the viewer?

    That TPF has gone down it after removal of the nude gallery subforum. Duh!


    Anyway, I kinda like it. It's a high key shot of a clean drain fixture. My eye finds interest in the off kilter concetric circles. There is texture and pattern repeat in the stain on the porcelain, on the drain base, and on the plug. Also, the repititipn of the subtle tones helps lead the eye. I hate watermarks though. This one is so large and dominate, that the image feels like a book cover, taken off the book and spread flat.
