    I really like brickwork and this reminds me of the Port Adelaide area so much.

    lovely symmetry Doug!
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    Put me down for enjoying the symmetry too! The different surfaces/materials all work harmoniously together as well. Very nice!
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    Doug,

    It is a great motif but I feel it may be a precise instance of less possibly being more. To me, the celebration of the brick laying is overshadowed by the seemingly peripheral relevance of the dominating white iron gates. Cropping to minimise or remove their presence and I feel the BRICK story will come through loud and clear.

    Yer I like that.

    Edit: There is something pleasing to me about the near equal lengths of the legs of the"Y" in the first however.
    It was the intricacies of the brick work that appealed to me about the building, but so to was this the symmetry of this area of it.
    It may be a case where the balance of the image shifts when scaled up to print size, were the detail of the brick would be a stronger focus of attention than at this size.

    Those doors are a bit jarring though I must admit.
