Love all the lines, I just wish they were straighter. I had problems with straightness of lines in some of my outtakes too. It is a challenge when you have so many lines. The image is spot on the challenge topic so a 6 from me

You did a great job knocking that shadow down - unfortunately it did leave some chroma noise.

If this had been shot in flat light, I'd be a little happier with it, but as it is, this is a very nice image, and fits the challenge well.

I think the colors fit the challenge well the only odd texture is the wood but Im sure you may have been limited by your environment like many. Nice Job

Cool! I don't like the crop though. I think this would have been even better with a square crop, taking the extra off the bottom
