This is the back entrance to the Photographers Gallery where I display my work from time to time. I set up my show on the 22nd, the day I saw and took this photo. I have always loved the bright colors of this wall and the play of the sun's shadows on it and am glad we had a challenge where I could enter this.
Slight crop, lots of adj layers to get this final result.

Would also make a good entry in the Pink Floyd challenge that we're never going to have.

Good luck.

I like this very much, the white line breaks up the strong red color, very nicely composed..

Simple and nice. Good texture, color, and lines. I like the white crack in the upper right that echoes the steps below.
