Awesome. Great use of geometrics to bring my eyes into the depth of the pic. Looks great in black and white!

Very cool. Its somewhat of an optical illustion - at least to me. I feel I'm looking down, then I don't. Fun photo to look at. I like the black & white. I think its effective with your image.

Great effect. Wonderful symetry drawing the eye deeper and deeper into the picture.

Very interesting shot. Cool patterns and textures. B&W gives it a good feel. Probably work well as a really big print.

Love the tones here and the repetitive pattern. I love how the light creates an inner "frame". Really cool.

I like this very much. Do think the impact would've been stronger if the bottom was cropped out and the shot more centered. I've tried to see how it looks cropped out via scrolling and it sure does have a hypmatizing effect. The eye going in and out and not wandering out of the frame as much. Right now the bottom is distracting. Hope this does well for you.

Excellent!!

Very cool - great lighting. I think this would be even more interesting with something to break up the pattern - such as a single gull - but a great photo nonetheless.

Very much my kind of shot - remarkable DOF and detail throughout - especially in the distance. Great control of light and shadow and I can't see this in anything other than B&W.
