I attended an exhibition of The Lego World where several important buildings were built in Lego mini block. Since the small Lego blocks are made of plastic, it was perfect for this challenge. I propose this composition

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

This certainly fits the challenge brief well Marcel. Your commenters have already identified the main problem with it being the shallow DOF, obviously a smaller aperture would have enabled you to get all of the building in focus. However, given the inclusion of what looks like Big Ben in the background this is obviously out of place for the nature of the subject, because of that I would identify the real problem as your focus point. Had you focussed to get all the frontal features sharp it would have rendered the background detail softer and stood our more this would have given it a lot more impact.

OK, but an obvious subject and needs more DOF, perspective

Longer DOF would have prevented those blurred corners. Neat structure, though.
