The composition is interesting, but I think it's the textures and colors that I like best. Well done!

Just an awesome capture, and I see that you under estimated the power that this image projects.


yep looks wonky to me too, and yes, i wasn't all that impressed with this shot when I first posted it. But as the week went on, it kinda grew on me...thanks

A different and unique composition. Very nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This one stops me every time while going thru the thumbnails. Even the dark area in the corner is ok, as it suggests that there is more beyond the edge of the image. Very "artsy" image.
