This was one of three possibilities for this challenge. The other two were low views of railroad tracks, but this one seemed more DP-friendly.

:::Critique Club Here:::

First Impression: Psychedelic effect makes me want to turn my head. Almost make me feel like I am in a trance. (10)

Technical: The composition is just excellent. I love the way the angles make this photograph work. One would'nt imagine taking a photograph of bricks could be nice to look at. You managed to make this work very well. I like the effect of being able to see the detail in the bricks. (10)

Appeal: When I first start looking at this photograph is overall very appealing but my attention starts to walk away from it. I am not sure why but I think it's maybe just too bland or too simple. (7)

Challenge: The overall photograph definitely meets the criteria of the challenge. There is a definite pattern that is visible within the photograph and this could be the bricks or the texture within the bricks. (10)

Title: The title within this photograph works very well since it is all molds and infinite sequence or series. (10)

Overall: Overall this is a wonderful photograph however difficult to get high scores due to the fact that it is very limited in its appeal. Technically speaking this photograph is very well shot, the angle that you are able to capture makes this work very well. Keep up the good work (What do they say "everyone is a critic") (9)

This was framed so well & those converging lines are quite nice! But my interest sorta stops there - the image was executed well, but lacks in staying power for me.

That's good news for you, because I rarely pick winners here at dpc so good luck! << 7 >>

Finally - interesting bricks, as far as composition goes! There maybe could be a little more more contrast or saturation to the colors.

Really unusual angle makes for a really strong and very disorientating composition - it's actually making me feel slightly dizzy - a great achievement with a photograph of a straightforward brick wall! Clever!
