Remnant of a shack in a New Mexico Ghost Town. In the color version, the nails are reddish. I was attracted to this due to the texture and shading. Probably underwhelming or a little too artsy. Anyhow, I like it.

I liked it, and the concept you were going for! Well done and good commentary.

The exposed nails at the bottom are fascinating. Like you, I find the textures and shading to be photogenic. I'm trying to do a bit more abstract-type compositions from reality, but often fail. And I never think of "artsy" as a negative term

One consideration for this composition: the nails get a little lost in this tall aspect. Cropping a bit at both ends would strengthen the story IMO.

Consider posting images with a larger pixel resolution. This image at 427-pixels wide doesn't offer much to see nor comment against.

If for me and my 'larger' comment, consider storing the original. Thx.

Like you 2nd version better Jack. Maybe a tad more contrast.

Intriguing subject and composition. Following up on Linda's comment, I wonder if a square format- achieved by cropping off the top - would be better?

My suggestion isn't for a square aspect.
