Last minute switch out of my entry this time.

This is a wall in the Fort Worth Stockyards, where the plaster has crumbled away to show part of an old Dr. Pepper advertisement. The "Dr. P" is still covered up, so it reads "Epper".

Anticipated Critiques:
No clue on this one.

Post challenge notes:
One of those rare last minute entries that actually performed well. I'm happy.

Was just checkin' your profile out and saw the HM in rectangles and took a look.

I gave this an 8. I thought the colour of the bricks was really interesting. The grid and the contrast of the blown our orange and the black was very interesting.
The only... fault (and this is totally the wrong word) I saw in it when I voted was the tilt of the shot. It follows the break in the plaster on the top left, but it doesn't follow the trends of the bricks This might be down to the shooting, though. You may have needed to be a few feet taller to get everything in parallel :) Need to add a cinder block to your shootin' kit :P

Interesting urban streetscape. Love the "yin/yang" effect. But perhaps the "rectangle" is not prominent enough?

I like the many rectangles within the rectangles. The color adds to the appeal. Nice work.
