This week's topic is The End. The end of an object, the end of a journey, etc. I would be delighted to see 6 or more entries for this competition because lately the number of entries has been rather sparse.

The challenge begins when posted and will end on Monday, June 1st, 2020 at midnight GMT. The winner will be announced shortly after (on Tuesday).

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR).
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE. Feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.


yeah, I gots some stuff.

Well, 4 images are better than just 1.

Chris (Eidelweiss) - Untitled
Nice play on the theme: end of the line; end of a train car.

Don (OldCrow) - Untitled
Nice B&W of the final ending place. I like the composition and the statue looking into the lens.

(Capn Jack) - Untitled
I'm struggling to understand the tie-in to the theme. Maybe it's the end of the roses as they have been discarded in a trash receptacle but that doesn't tell a story that speaks to me. A lot of dead space at the top that I find doesn't contribute to the composition. Maybe I'm just dense.

Ed (dilorenzo1954) - Final Destination
Nice B&W with selective coloring of the final ending place. It looks to me like it is shot while looking into a mirror but I am at a loss to explain what is going on outside of the mirror's boundary. Maybe some sort of app that is replicating the subject? I don't know and would appreciate hearing an explanation of the shot.

I'm giving this one to Ed for a visually stimulating image that is also teasing my brain to figure out how it was made. HM to Don for a well-composed B&W.

Thanks to everyone that contributed to the competition. Take it away Ed!

Then wouldn't the inscription be backward? There does seem to be a frame. I don't know what to make of it.

Congratulations, Ed.

Roger, thank you for the critique. It was a Valentine Day shot, suggesting the end of a relationship. It is a reminder to me that not everyone sees things the same way. You certainly are not dense.

Thanks Roger! And thanks all for the kudos!
I will post a new challenge tonight after work. Simple explanation of the image... I used the transform tool to warp the image to look like a coffin. I had a lot of dead space and first thought of a black background, then changed my mind and cloned in little details of the image into the BG. I thought it made it look surreal and kept it. I'll post a picture of the original image later too;-)a

I suspected that's what you were going for but I didn't see enough content to suggest it was Valentine's day or that the roses represented love (now maybe if they were red roses!). Sorry I had to bust out the critique mallet on you! :oops:

You were polite and positive about it, it was good critique. I didn't get a sense of mallet or hammer at all!

Thanks much!

This is the original image. It might have played well on its own.
