      Sometimes I think people view the challenge is primarily finding a subject and forget or don't know how to create a composition around it. This would be an image like that.

      Composition is sort of catchall. I think it is more interesting to isolate a particular item and work on composition techniques to make a more focused composition.

      The light is nice and the composition uncluttered. It could perhaps use just a little boost to exposure and/or contrast/clarity.

      It would be hard to guess from this image that the theme was trash. No single element stands out as the intended subject or focal point. The bike wheel, street, road sign, and car might suggest something transportation related.

      Trash and trash bins are not the same thing so I didn't understand at first how this fit the challenge. As a composition what jumps out is the bright blue window of the church. The blurred figures in the foreground further confuse the nominal subject of the composition, i.e., trash/trash bins.

      Yes, this stretches the theme. The quality of the B&W rendition is nicely sharp and contrasty.

      Nicely composed and simplified with B&W rendition.

      I like this image for the tonal qualities, the gritty feel, and the interesting contrast between the circular, planar geometry of the wheel and the rectangular three-dimensionality of the box. The brightness of the box makes it stand out from the background nicely too. The texture and lines of the concrete add another geometrical element and context without being distracting.

      Shooting as one walks is certainly in the spirit of street photography. The idea of shooting something like trash was intended to allow for more deliberate composition of the image.The image has a light half and a dark half. The nominal subject is in the dark half. Right off the bat, light areas naturally draw the eye. The shadows of the image are so dark that detail is lost. You could either expose more for the shadows to retain detail or recover the shadow details in post.

      Pleasant, bucolic image that uses the road is a nice leading line. As far as the challenge goes, it misses completely. Who would think the abandoned fuel tank (how would one know it's abandoned) sitting off in the corner of the image is the subject of image?

      Right on theme. One of just a few that got the idea of this challenge I think. I like the simplicity of the composition.

      My overall impression is the composition has no focus, design or organization. The photographers intent is unclear. Leg and arm of person walking out of frame, part of car at top of frame, various other items scattered around the around the edges, miscellanous poles and lines leading out of frame. My eye wanders about looking for what the image is about.

      I think this comes as close as any and closer than most to the idea of the theme with respect to composition. I do wonder what possible advantage was gained in blending 4 images of different focus of a scene that is basically a flat plane with little depth. I would think f8 should provide sufficient DOF by itself.

      I'm puzzled by the intent of the composition and the relation to the theme.

      Sort of a stretch for a street photography theme. Composition lacks focus and organization.

      I like the simplicity of the composition. The subject is very clear.

      I would've liked to see a much tighter composition from about the same angle but closer to the cup -- basically the lower right corner of the image. This would make the trash item (cup) the clear subject and bench would provide a simple background, nice lines and textures. I have read that the secret to composition is to eliminate everything from the frame that serves no purpose to the image.

      I like the diagonal leading line which leads the eye and is more dynamic than horizontals and verticals. The extreme aspect ratio with the subject tucked in the extreme corner minimizes the subject too much and doesn't feel as balanced as it might with a more standard aspect ratio.

      I like that you shot from a low angle and made the subject clear without other distracting elements.

      Interesting lines and shadows. Good DOF. Maybe shift the framing to the right so the bottle is more like on the thirds line and eliminate black area on the left.

      Seriously, enter this in other photo competitions. It's other worldly. There are 3 voters who didn't have this in the top 10. They may be from some other world too.

      Overall, an enigmatic image. The way you cropped it reminds me of those figure and ground images that your mind can interpret two ways. It also gives the impression of looking through some sort of opening. The way it is presented removes the dimension of depth. What it doesn't do for me is call to mind the theme of curves.

      Striking image -- dark, still, moody.
