This is a fascinating image - works well in both positive and negative. It's busy, but just enough to really pique the viewers interest. Lots going on and the composition leads you throughout the picture to see it. Well seen.

Cool location, wish I had something like that here in Reykjavik, I would definately do a model shoot there. Love the pristine sharpness and colors in this one. 8 from me.

Great application of the negative image challenge. The geometric lines of the stairs and brick contrast beautifully with the graffiti. Really excellent shot. 8.

Great shot. One of the few "busy" pictures that works great as a negative. Alot to look at without it being cumbersome. Love the green, orange and purple highlights that were achieved. Bumping up.

Wow those colors stand out great! It's busy but doesnt feel busy just feels like there is lots of look at. Almost looks like a comic book back alley scene.

All the different colors work very well in this shot. I don't think I've ever seen graffiti presented in such a nice way. :)
