***Greetings from Critique Club***

First off, I'd like to start by saying congrats on your highest rated photo. Getting better and that's a good thing.

You hit the challenge here well and produced an image nobody could say did not meet the challenge.

As far as technicals go. Focus is good, exposure is perfect and lighting is dead on. You scored well on thise merits I'd suppose.

Now, how do we improve this photo? Well, for this particular photo it seems to be a hard thing. Perhaps creating a diagonal pattern by rotating the camera would have created more punch to the composition, but that's just my opinion ofcourse. Colored light inside the glass blocks might have added some punch, but that may have not been possible.

Only thing that really bothers me about your photo here is some artifacting. Perhaps a little too much USM or over-compression of the JPEG file.

But in the end, you recieved a respectable score and you are definitely improving, so keep up the good work. I hope to see more from you.

Take care,

It's good, but boring...And it's all centered.

Definitly a repeating pattern. This might have been different with a shadow behind, or a unique light source shining in from one of the corners.

Good pattern, though without a specific focal point my eyes feel a little unguided and lost
