Rusty chain about to break. They are located near the beach actually, exposing them to salty conditions which increased their deterioration. Was just amazed with how such a very strong metal decline over time.

Well spotted... well depicted!
Makes me wonder... are there strong forces in action, what will be the consequences in case of break?
Your image is nicely composed, the colours of sunlit rust is always one of my favourites... Here I even get it on a background of contrasting green!

Nice close up! clear and sharp.
I will give a title "Not confidence" to this photo.

The chain will break anytime, so it's not confidence.

Nice shot!!!

Hi Alford- I like the compostion and DOF on this with the green background-the rusted and worn chain really stands out- it looks like there is alot of tension on it and it is in a losing battle with the elements- nice capture!

Best wishes,

PS out of smilies back tomorrow when i'm reloaded.
