    Abstract? That looks pretty concrete.

    (I'm sooo sorry)

    Nice lines/angles. I think it could use a bit more contrast, though. There seems to be a lack of shadow that puts the whole image into a very narrow tonal range.

    I agree with the last poster--try more contrast. Have you played around with Curves in Photoshop? You may also want to try different types of cropping. But nice lines and angles.

    i think the post-processing on the metal bars is just right, i don't think it needs any more contrast. not really a fan of the composition though, but that's just me.

    Thanks for your comments, guys and gals. This is the best post-processing job I could do (needless to say, my PP skills are very limited). I'm more than willing to send the original RAW file to whoever wants to take a stab at it. Just let me know.

    Thanks Wyjid. Please PM me your email address and I'll send you the RAW file right away.

    Thanks stsinner and Al-Wazeer! A-W, I like the added contrast in your edit, but now the image looks like out of a comic book :)
