    There is an annoying scratch (bottom of frame) that I still have to clone out - just pretend that isn't there for now...

    What do you think...?

    It's a little too.. straight on. Boring. I wish there was a better angle or more creative composition.

    Regards,

    The 'straightness' and repetitiveness of it was kinda the point. I personally don't find it boring, but I can see how others might.

    as interesting as it seams, i feel like its a tad out of focus or just not sharp enough.

    It's definitely 'in focus'. It was shot on Fuji Neopan SS 100, which isn't exactly what I would call 'fine grain', so that may be what you're seeing affecting the sharpness.


    I might rescan this ... I feel that it could use a boost in contrast. Might also help it look sharper...

    Good one; yet if this fails to impress me much, it is not because of the technicality but because of the taste

    Nice shot; I like it.
    What have you done for sharpening? Have you tried frequency separation then a curves layer on the HF layer? It will bring out any grain in the image too though (you can mask sections out from being sharpened though)

    Just some USM... I may just rescan it later and see what I can do for sharpening...

    It doesn't appeal me personally, but I can see the technical aspects behind it (shape and pattern). Very creative!
