The black background, color and white forefront really set this off. It's a good one. jano

Wow Tommy. My eyes traveled right to the cones then those cones kept me from falling into the darkness. Most excellent. -Doug

I LOVE this one Tom! The composition is terrific and the colorful safety cones stand out so well against the dark background and the light foreground. Great shot! :-) CJ

Ah yes the old Photoshop floorboard filter ;-) Very nicely thought out and captured Tommy, works excellently for the topic.

I only got a near perfect picy but here is a perfect picy in my book. As sometimes happens the more simple of shots just transforms into magic. If these safety hats had been on concrete this picy would be just a good on topic picy but the floorboards & black background makes this a truly special picy. Even the one hat right of middle being out of sync & the two on the left seemingly leaning backwards adds the needed dynamic & tension for a perfect score.
Obviously the floorboards, black background & out of sync hats were added in Photoshop but the results are a stunning picy a.

Amusing! Nice work.

I like how the stripes of the cones kind of line up with the floorboards.
Good eye. Penny Street
