Hi Everyone, thanks for the comments and votes. I agree with all your comments especially the subject is not strongly tied to the theme. And just like your comments I also liked the element of the machine and the man's position in this photo. I might post some outtakes for this. :D

Lovely, very good! I must admit that I like it too much to not rank it in my TF although I would't see the connection to the theme without your explanation...

This is my favourite shot but not my no. 1 pick for two reasons. Firstly, I think it needs to be much sharper, maybe sharpened after downsize, maybe tripod required or better focus. Secondly, I would have cloned out the distracting cylindrical object and the white ground cover. The crouching figure with a back to the giant claw with this framing angle and lighting, I think is fabulous.

The man and machine juxtposition is what is most interesting to me about this photo. I understand the theme connection mainly from your explanation, which means the image is a little weak on conveying the theme on its own. But I still like the photo, so good luck!

I really like this shot very much! It's so full of atmosphere.
But I'm missing the actual ruin / broken stuff... a difficult decision.

An interesting entry. Wish it was clearer what the person is doing. Could be taking a photo!.
