the composition is good and i like the contrast between the the viewer's initial thought of a spray can (strait for one thing) and the reality of the forgotten, rusted spray can. i like also the message which you are trying to convay with the title and the picture - the idea, as i interpret it, of accepted "cultured" art vs. art of the common man - the idea that art is but an expression of oneself rather than a status symbol in an hierarchial society of "rights" and "wrongs"

... and :) The spray can base appears to tilt forward at quite a steep angle (from the camera positioned above) yet the shadow of the can is lying at a shallower angle, providing greater depth, horizontally, and pointing towards the horizon line. It's very clever!

I like this a lot! Randy's got a good point, but, for this photo I think just the opposite is true. What's unusual and interesting is that the subject is in the foreground with the horizon line clearly at a distance behind.This gives the photo real depth in a creative way. The signature is positioned so the spraycan almost seems to be bowing towards it and that's a lovely touch.

Very good! Who would think a rusted can would make a piece of art.

Very nice job on this! A slight improvement to this would be to double the background space at the top and bottom, it looks slightly crowded and I think that would help it.

This is very well done. Great job making a piece of junk look like a work of art. Great lighting and background
