    Can't get much more ordinary and everyday than a hole :-) You've managed to make it into a very interesting and appealing shot though. I like it!!!

    Good eye finding this for the challenge, and nice capture settings, the great aperture renders a nice OOF background for the subject... TT for me, well done!!

    This is an interesting choice for the theme. I really like the way you've focused so closely on the screen and blurred the background.

    Wow thanks everyone for all the encouraging comments, especially since this is my first ever entry on Panachallenge. I was initially interested in photographing the pattern on the screen, but then realized maybe it would be too plain if it was just the regular screen in tact. And when I noticed the hole, I thought it would make a great contrast between the normal part of the screen and the broken part. (But no, I didn't purposely make the hole :) it was already there)

    I am amazed of the simplicity of this picture. It's a thing everybody knows and you may see it every day. Fits the theme very well so far.
I came coming back to your photo, wondering why I like it so much. The simplicity, yes! But it works very well for me... I think it is because I don't really focus something. I just look at the pattern and the hole and start to speculate what did happen (and what would I think if I found this in my house? :-D ).
I already graduated so we have different associations - and everyone will have their own. Your picture is wide open to 'personal interpretation'.
To sum it up: Great shot and very captivating!

    top vote for this one. Very creative. It suits the theme as well. I wish the screens could have been sharper to add more emphasis, but still this photo is good as it is. Good Work!!!!

    You met the theme 100%. Probably not my favourite shot but one of the top 1 or two that has done most with least

    This shot should inspire people (including me) to look again at everyday things. You have made a fantastic shot out of an otherwise grubby, broken down screen.

    Interesting; a good illustration of how a photo may speak more about the photographer than the subject. Well on theme (and fix that screen - and avoid Dengue).
