This is a pretty neat picture, I like the way you still get the idea of squares across, but not quite having a full square (I think challenges can be more in spirit then in physical terms ;-) )

Your focus here is excellent, and I love the contrast of the stark black against the cloudy, pleasantly blue sky. The coloring is really beautiful. Also I like your use of DOF here, you have the well focused "squares" and the background looks slightly blurry which makes you appear to be looking through a window.

I think that technically this photo has a good feeling, the leading lines are very helpful, your eye can follow this picture pretty well, especially since most of the straight lines go from the bottom left to the top right, and the squiggly lines go from the bottom right to the top left, its really interesting. It would not have been as effective if you had put it upright. Also the fact that none of the lines cross directly in the center is excellent.

Overall I think this is a great photo, though maybe not a wow photo, which may be where you lost some points, but you still did pretty well. I think its a pleasant photo to look at, it met the challenge, and was executed well. I really don't have anything to suggest changing about it. Nice Job!

Looks like a good desktop wallpaper pattern, but not much in terms of artistic photography. sorry - Inspzil

I don't see any squares. Not one shape with four straight sides. Geez! lol just kidding. Very simple use of colours and shadows. Good luck. Jacko. 8

This is pretty cool. I think it is very creative. I do think that the diagonal view of the squares is a little disturbing to the eye. I really like the clouds!

Hmmmm ... maybe this is where Microsoft got their idea of flying squares?

Simple yet effective. I like how the foreground and background compliment each other. I think the sky with the clouds adds an interpretational depth to the image, giving it an imprisoned yet hopefull feel. And it meets the challenge of squares :)
