Contest goal:

Metals, they rust, they shine, they're dark, they're light, they're valuable or very cheap. For this contest, we're looking for photos containing metal in some form or another. Something unusual would be great. You could go for an abstract shot, or something more traditional. Think about the texture of metal and effects you can create with it. Watch out for errant reflections! You'll probably run into problems if you use direct flash, as you'll get unsightly overexposed spots, so look out for that.

The rules of the contest are thus: Find a metal, or multiple metals, and photograph them.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!
