Good shot. Lovely thick rust in a variety of colours. Nice contrast with the rope. Well seen.

Very nicely seen, Yitzhak! My first thought when I saw the thumbnail was "Isn't this a bit too centered?", but seeing it full size I don't think it is. The shadow to the left and the rope going out to the right make for a pleasing way of filling the frame, and I'm surprised how many different shades of rusty red there are. Looking forward to the "more" you're announcing!

Lovely colors and very simple scene. The lighting, strong and harsh, seems appropriate for getting the colors and textures of this rope cleat. I am wondering why you chose the centered composition, though, which gives all of the focus to this subject without hinting much at its environment or space, or even use.

Nice simple composition...

Less is more, very nice shot! I added some more sharpness in a WS. Maybe you should have made room for the rest of the shadow?

I like the simplicity of this, Yitzhak. The rusty capstan, the rope and the decking harmonise in colour but contrast in 'texture'. I could not resist attempting a workshop.

Good simple photo Yitzhak. It is interesting that we see similar colors in the wood and in the rust. It was a good idea to leave some water in the shot.

Great colors and texture contrasts. The light is also very nice.
As martin's WS shown you've got a base for a great photo here.

if simple and so beautiful that I ever thought of it with a port not far from at home, it is well done and the colors go well together
