A row of plastic chairs (how exciting!) I like the repetition of patterns. It's hard to take a decent photograph in an office full of cubicles! The chairs are in the break area, and I turned the last one sideways to give a more interesting background than a wall.

My other idea was an old writing desk in sepia, but work commitments saw me unable to make the necessary arrangements.

So my guess for this is high 4's!

I love the b/w and the perspective. Nice one.

I love repeating patterns and the almost illustrated nature of this photo

Nice pattern image. I feel a bit more contrast would have added more impact.

Either more color or a different conversion technique is very much needed in this rather flat and unintersting image. While the author's intent is clear, the attempt at creating a more advanced artistic impression doesn't work.

I like the composition, but am not sure why you chose such a narrow depth of field. So much of the image is out of focus and there is nothing special about the parts that have been picked out in the focal plane. I think the lines are really good here, with great eye movement all through the image, and a nice job on the reduction.

nice movement but i wouldn't have blurred anything and i think i would have used more contrast

Repeating pattern enjoyable. I find the sharp large seat with gradual loss of sharpness going further away to be a good pattern. The immediate lower part of the image (fragment of seat, fully blurred) is an area you might consider cropping away to see how that looks.
