John - an interesting pattern image made by the stairway running diagonally across. Maybe a touch more contrast would be beneficial.   Posted: 01/09/2020 05:10:12

Hi John
This image proves you have had that amazing observers eye for a long long time I agree with Peter maybe a touch more contrast and just brighten it slightly I might even crop it up from the bottom to the second dark line fantastic patterns diagonal works a treat and the steps break up the pattern and add a focal point and so much interest keep those eyes peeled John so love your take on photography.   Posted: 01/09/2020 15:52:36

I have always had trouble with cropping this image.
Diagonal lines often give me this problem.
I shall try a few different crops to see what happens.   Posted: 01/10/2020 15:46:08

The contrasting repeating patters( the stairs vs the panels) makes this image very appealing. With the panel composition on the diagonal the image does not seem static but rather dynamic. I enjoy the image. Well done.   Posted: 01/10/2020 15:41:09

Hi John: I like the interesting patterns and textures of your image. To my eye, your image appears a bit flat and think a bit more contrast might work.   Posted: 01/11/2020 22:27:45

An interesting image John. As Peter pointed out, it would benefit with more contrast.   Posted: 01/18/2020 16:49:35
