Love the subject, but I think a bit more isolation on the phone booths as a subject would bring it more coherence. At the moment it's a bit chaotic with all the lines an colors.

I like the saturation and the textures.

My first reaction John, was "what a perfect place for a photo shoot!" meaning portraiture of course. I gave you a 6. I love the subject matter. I was born in england, and my first crush was on postman pat, so i always find an old red letter box endearing.
I think the composition is interesting, i like that the image goes red/greenish/red in the three layers. I do feel that you oversharpened the image - as evident from the jaggity feel of the first 2 lamposts visable. I'm so glad these old fellas will be refurbished and not left to an infinate rust!

Someone could make some money selling those phone booths to private individuals for in the basement or in a party room. Cool! Nice shot with a lot of neat lines and colors. 8.

The phone booths are different than I'm used to seeing, but there seems too much clutter with all the poles.

the repeating shapes in the upper part of this would make for a stronger composition - maybe just focusing on those is a better approach -

this was a great find - appears a little over-sharpened but a great subject! 6

The red pipe in the foreground is too heavy. As I scroll down and remove nearly all the pipe except the upper 1/3, it made for a much better image.

Crop off the sky on the top and bring out the red a little more and it's a 10 for me.

Where is this?

Looks like Danger Mouse is homeless! (If that isn't too obscure) The colors seem a bit washed out and I can't decide what I should be looking at; the foreground or background.
