    great dof!
  • Nancy Ward PRO 10y

    I like the simplicity and rust of this shot...and I agree great dof
  • Drew Streib 10y

    I want to say, "What is so special about a bolt?" But something about this shot makes me believe this bolt! I want to follow _this_ bolt!

    Anyway, I want to trash this shot as boring, but I can't. Great texture. Perfect framing. Perfect focus and short depth of field.

    Voted saveme. (From Delete Me! group.)

    great study of a nut with clean focus and good exposure- i like the idea of the other nut in the backgound but it is too demanding of my eye - its swollen out of focus-ness is a distraction...?

    agreeing with doctor john a bit.... the front bolt/nut has incredible detail but the bolt/nut behind it vies for too much attention and pulls the eye back...

    Technically great...color, dof, texture, but nothing gripping other than its a superior quality picture.

    not engaging for me, might be an age/gender/demographic thing

    a great photo that lacks any appeal.

    Coulda, but didn't. It's not the bolts that let ya down, it's the light and the relatively dull composition. Delicious camera, boring capture. A more compelling composition or less flat light might have made me like these boltsandthatsall, buuuuut I think this one falls short.

    I like rusty bolts. I like the way the second one looks like a shadow of the first. Voted saveme2.
  • Felix63 10y

    The front bolt seems flat, therefore it lacks something...

    What jgoldpac said. Voted saveme.
  • Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir PRO 10y

    ultimately, its just a bolt. Probably the best photograph ive seen of one, but still, as far as emotional impact goes, nada.
  • Felix63 10y

    Agree. I never seen such a fascinating picture of a rusty bolt or any bolt. Do you do nails as well?
