Safety tiles on the platform at BART's MacArthur Station. Late afternoon sun, handheld exposure between commuters.

Cropped and rotated, some tone adjustment, USM. Added a few extra black pixels to the bottom to give it more "weight;" the dark glazed tiles were a pretty narrow strip, and I didn't want to take any more off the top.

Late is better than never, Paul. Good photo of a good subject. I believe with the crop you would have scored 70 points higher.

Thanks, everyone! With 10 out of 14 commenters requesting it, I had no choice but to upload a re-cropped version for your evaluation. Should I make a printable file of this?

Definately meets challenge. I would like to see this cropped higher up so only the dots can be seen. Just my thought:)

Hmm would like to see a version without red tiles... just a thought.

This twists my brain (in a good way).

I know what this is! It's the blind student, kept after class, writing 300 times, "I will not let my seeing-eye dog sniff the teacher," right???

Interesting repetition. I liked it

You really should have cropped out the bottom for more impact - the tiles are very distracting. Nice idea. Your DOF is a little narrow towards the left.

I think you could have skipped the dark space on the bottom and just let the viewers eyes role over all of those dots.
Still very good.

meets the challenge title but leaves the eye wandering with nowhere to rest!

I think I'd prefer it to be the whole scene, without the interruption at the bottom

I feel the bottom black portion of the photo should be cropped off.
The color and detail contrast of the tile is great, though.

I would have liked it better if you cropped out the lower part of th picture. Nice repetition though.

I may have been tempted to leave out the brown tile at the bottom -- I think the yellow rivots stand out enough on their own. I like the texture & shadows on 'em!

I would have cropped the bottom off.
With the shadows, this makes an interesting pic.
