    Duck: I like the first one the best. Although a somewhat ordinary
    sight, the patterns and angles do add interest, and it is not too
    complex to be distracting, which is my complaint about the other two.

    Cooper: They fit the mandate. I like the colors of the Dead Man's
    Hand. But overall, I guess the models are just not my thing. It's
    kinda neat that you have the dogs playing poker in 3D, though.

    KPetre: I'm impressed almost every time I see your work. You have a
    nice eye for color. The first picture is ordinary, almost banal, but
    somehow you make it work. The second one I just find pleasing to look
    at.

    PhotoPhartz: Did your parents really name you that? An eclectic
    collection of furniture and items on them, for sure. All three
    pictures I found interesting, in their own way.

    Bowser: I bet you had second thoughts on how good of an idea this
    furniture mandate was. The steel ladder on the the earthmover was
    definitely interesting. I like that shot. I guess the furniture was
    the stone bench it ran into.

    Pablo: Hey Pablo, I like your pics this time. Simple. Abstract.
    Nice colors in the two color shots.

    Sandman: I have mixed feelings on this one, but ultimately it just
    doesn't work for me. But I have to know, what is the slot for? And
    why does the bottom of the slot look weird? There must be a back
    story to this picture.

    PeterN: Very nice this time. The headless tramp is priceless. I like
    the Monhegan chairs, too, although I suspect the birds are not
    entirely natural. Was one bird holding a steak knife and fork?

    They were real birds. Just not flying over Monhegan Island at that time.
    Good seeing. I thought I did a good job of placing them.

    Thanks for your comments.

    The name? Isn't it dashing?!! (<;

    It's a bar stool, the slot is for carrying it. I see what you mean about
    it looking off. The glare on the floor makes the color in the slot just
    flat, so you don't get any sense that you're seeing the floor through
    it, which bothers me a lot now that you said it :)

    It is just too implausible that they would be flying so symmetrically,
    and two of the birds are identical. Maybe it is just one bird too
    far.

    I can think of other uses for a slot in a bar stool, however the
    location would have to be....er...different. ;-)

    I've been thinking about this. Although this wouldn't qualify as
    "art" to me that I would hang on a wall, I think these pictures are
    technically well done, and would work well as illustrations for a
    magazine article. Not every picture needs to be "art".

    OTOH There are many pieces that qualify as art, that I would never hang
    on my wall. Also, many photos are definitely not art, but I happily
    hang them on my wall, (they are called family pictures.)

    Well, this is the proper place to put a "Uh, no comments" :)

    Well, based on the definition of furniture, posted in the rulz page,
    the ladder fits fine:

    fur·ni·ture [fur-ni-cher] noun
    1. the movable articles, as tables, chairs, desks or cabinets,
    required for use or ornament in a house, office, or the like.
    2. fittings, apparatus, or necessary accessories for something.
    3. equipment for streets and other public areas, as lighting
    standards, signs, benches, or litter bins.

    :)

    Oh, OK, never mind then. I like this definition:

    A person's habitual attitude, outlook, and way of thinking: "the
    mental furniture of the Bostonian".
