You're right; our patterns are very similar. It's eerie that the two shots are side by side in the Team Suck thread. I also noticed that we were both using a pattern on top of another pattern to create additional patterns. Needless to say, I like your shot. And I like the black and white treatment. Sorry I can't think of anything to improve it.

I really like the shading on the window frame, I thought it was a border you burned at first. I almost wish the window in the background wasn't there or was filling up more space. I think that might have helped your score quite a bit.

Personally, I think you got a raw deal on this shot. This is far better than a 4.8. I like the black and white and I like the dark feel to it. I've always like those "dark" shots. I gave this a 6 and the only reason I didn't give it a 7 was because of the soft focus.

Good idea just out of focus IMO.

Nice use of shadow and light, focus seems soft
