OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for my Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: This one has my eyes dancing - the window in the centre draws the eye to begin with before it dances to the hanging door and then flits to the sign towards the bottom right. I really like the peripheral blur. The touch of brown colour in the middle is compelling too.

Critical stuff: nothing really

Overall: One of those images that is more than the sum of its part. Great stuff.

I want to just hang here for a bit, if you don't mind. Think I'll also favorite this so I can revisit.

Brave entry for the free study! The minute this one opened I was taken aback, while there's nothing obviously interesting in this scene, I actually find the shot very interesting indeed. I find myself staring into that large black square in the middle of the frame, then to the door and then back again. Very interesting!
