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 the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Nicely framed frames! Excellent coloration and I like the distortions too. I think your choice of aspect ratio works very well.

Critical stuff: Those not attracted by studies of geometry might not have too much time for this.

Overall: A well balanced image, the shooting and editing match the subject matter very well indeed.

Very cool warping of the image in the windows. The color changes are very interesting as well. For some reason, it feels as though the image is crooked, although I know that isn't the case (yes I checked).

I enjoy the creative nature of this image. However for me it is lacking something to really make me stand up to attention. It is fun but perhaps it does not hold enough clarity for me.
