    The paint spatters above the circle seem to be in space, not adhering to the wall, giving the photo a three dimensional character

    I think the strongest element is the texture. I love how you can see every grain in the brick, and even the beads of paint in the circle. While it is a nearly flawless photo (in my opinion), perhaps the orange glob could have been placed slightly lower or frame the photo a bit higher (think rule of third), so that the balance would be stronger.

    @Bill- that's the ground! :) Love that it has a dual-gravity. :) @Carmel- you're right....it is floating there in between the two RoT points.... Hrm. May need to fix that! Thanks! :)

    Carly, the contrast between the brick and the paint creates a 'struggle.' The brick's demure color and straight lines struggle against the wild color and uncontrolled shape of the paint - great shot!

    Strength: Color, of course and the strong edges of the brick constrast well with the loose edges of the paint. Distracting: The paint is too close to the vertical center. As Carmel wrote, think about the thirds rule. I thought of that before I saw Carmel's comment.

    When I first saw this, my first reaction was "Wow!" The contrast of natural colors with the neon, the soft roundness of the spot of paint against the hard edge of the brick. Continuing to look, I started to not like the vertical balance, like Carmel. Cropping to a square ;) could put the spot on the thirds? I think I'd keep the spot at the bottom third 'cause like Bill, I like the spatters at the top, too.

    I like this one a lot. It keeps drawing me back to look at it - the contrast between the clean lines of the sidewalk (which I would not be able to know unless you told me), and the irregularity of the color patch, the contrast in colors are just great. Like others I would probably have cropped it to remove the lower part of the picture, keeping the upper most parts.
