    thank you all for the comments. Based on some of the responses I thought that I might add a little. I purposefully did not title this or offer other info. I hoped that each would interpret this shot individually, without a title or other info -a bias that I did not want to introduce. FYI, I hung the medal on a fence that surrounds a high voltage power plant and set of transformers/towers/wires. The crosses that you see are merely utility poles (out of focus so you'd not readily discern those). Happy shooting!

    I must admit, the chainlink fence framing eludes me. I like the background however. May make my final cut.

    Beautiful capture of this religious medallion. I love way the mundane frame becomes something more, the linkages taking on a symbolic essence of unity .
The background bokeh is wonderful. tt.

    I really love this shot. Beautiful subject, composition, bokeh. And the monochrome treatment is super effective. This will be fighting for my #1 spot.

    This shot really appeals to me because it makes me wonder why the necklace is hanging from a chain link fence. B&W works beautifully, and the detail is great.

    Very nice composition using the fence links for framing the medal with the crosses in the background blurred enough to not be distracting from the main subject. B&W works well too. In my T5.

    I like the geometry but am lost on the message.

    Don't know what the background is, religion-related or not - would be nice but don't mind at all. The plasticity you got here, only with a simple medallion, is technically perfect and truly beautiful for the theme. My #2 pick and that only because I personally love the image with the praying man - but I can envision yours as a worthy winner too. Terrific job, congrats!

    I like the simplicity of this image. The gate wire frames the religious object nicely. The B&W treatment is also effective. Well thought out, and carried off. In my TT's.

    Good choice of B+W and quite thought provoking with the railings and fencing.

    Good use of DOF. Leaves me wondering why the medal is hanging on a fence.

    This is my top pick! Well taken... composition, lighting, focus are right on as was the choice to do Black and White. Very dramatic.
