Great shot, but could maybe use a little more of that 3rd one. More like 2 1/4 instead of 3 as it is. Really like the color and texture though.

Good study of texture, lighting, shadows and geometry. Not super interesting, but a very solid, sound photo.

The lighting shows off the shape very well. Nicely done.

The crop, so critical for this minimal shot, is quite good.

I have toyed with the possibility to shift that crop (the entire final image) slightly to the left, mainly to slow the flow (eye movement), but remain unsure about a measurerable improvement on what is there.

The emphasis on texture is quite strong, considering that form is the dominant subject (?). The juxtaposition of the single-ringed columns (?) with the angular repeat of light and shadow makes for a satisfying contrast of opposites, while remaining true to a theme.

The slight flaw (top left, edge of centre and left column) is a little distracting, given the perfectionist manner and minimal subject. I see, however, no way of avoiding this within the contest rules.

One of the best entries, IMO, by one with a breath for detail and composition.

lovely curves. good textures. There's a distracting scratch in the left, and the lines don't match up.

Clear even to the grainy surface. Shadows add additional repetition. I like it.
