crop to square
lots af playing with color balance, selective color

contrast adjustment
added 2mm frame in black and white

Very clean and crisp shot, lighting is great and the composition complex yet simple. I have high hopes for this - as I'm sure you do ;) (bumping up 1)

At first I did not care for this--it seemed a bit too obvious to use geometric shapes for a square challenge. But it has grown on me so I'm bumping it up.

Interesting border effect. I don't normally care for them, but this one works.

I like this, well exposed and composed shot. the added bit of color really makes this shot pop! The lines lead you into the shot and overall make this just a pleasure to view. Well done!

Oh wow... this is very clever! The placement of the shapes and the background is brilliant. What did you use for the floor? Top ten for you - good luck!

I have just begun voting, but I am confident this will score really well in the challenge. A truly awesome display of talent in a variety of fields, not the least of which, is photography. This in my humble opinion should ribbon.

Nice trick with the border.

Somehow this reminded me to the impossible triangle. So great lines and shapes, and I love the colour object in the corner among all the BW. The only issue is that the lines are not always continuous on the edges of the transparent dark rectangle. The subject shouts for accurate fitting.

If I were a member and I could vote, it would be a 9.99 from me. :-) Good luck!

This is a uniquely interesting photograph. Somehow the color pulls my eye away from the rest of the photo. Perhaps that is your aim. At any rate, I would love it on my wall without the item on the right. The use of the wavy lines is very intriguing and pleasing on the eye.
