I had originally wanted to try to reproduce one of his architectural images, which I find fascinating. But I couldn't think of a building with that massive scale in the vicinity.

I'd given up on entering when I had to go to the store for something and saw this aisle, and thought that the repetitive endlessness was in keeping with the spirit.

[user]Aliqui[/user], you are right, except I should have cropped, since to the right were even less "repetitive" offerings. However, the crop looked odd to me.

Great layers. It's all so orderly it makes me wonder if someone gets frantic if it gets disrupted by customers taking out stock to buy.

Nice - very sharp and detailed, and the arrangement is interesting. I like those ranch style beans a lot but $1.59?

Of course! I was waiting for something of this sort - and it's BEANS, TONS OF BEANS!

I think it works wonderfully, and bet your score reflects that. The one can that's knocked over anomalously does bother me a little though.. (could be argued to be a good thing too though.. A little discord and all that..)

Great image. Looks like it could have been taken at any point in the last thirty years!

I kind of wish you would have moved a tad to the right. I think part of the power of this photo is all those damn beans! If you moved a little to the right, the viewer would be left to wonder just how many bean types there were. As it is, I now know they stopped at the canned potatoes and onions.

There is a surprising amount of color here. Neat.
