Trying to go for a pattern shot here. I'm not fond of the coloured circles as they were painted pretty poorly but I can't fix them. I also think I could have pushed some of the pieces to fill those wider gaps.

I don't think this will do well, but I took time to take it so I'm entering it.

Greetings from the Critique Club...

This challenge is one that was rather easy to meet, so that aspect doesn't play a significant role in the results. A score of 5.69 is a little better than the 5.37 average of this challenge.

From my personal perspective, I love images that put shape and texture into the forefront of the composition. Your image does that rather well obviously due to the choice of subject. I also tend to like high contrast images, but this one seems to be just a little over the top in that aspect for me. On the other hand, what this image is lacking for me is some sort of theme that provides a high level of interest for me as the viewer. There is a good story of off balance and symmetry to go along with the shapes and texture, but it's just missing something else and I can't really put my finger on it. Generally when that becomes a problem, its a simple choice of subject that comes into play.

Very nice! I like the idea and the composition is excellent. Nice job not blowing out the white while making the blues pop!
