    I love the inky black color and the balance between the table and chair. I agree that the left shadow is the most distracting element.

    I think it is hard to make photos of shadows that are interesting, but you have done so here. When I put a piece of paper on the image to crop out the leftmost shadow, the image still is strong, nay, even stronger, because the distracting element has been removed. Such a cropping reveals a dynamic interplay between the two circles, the table top and the seat of the chair. In any event, I really like this photo.

    Strongest: Linear forms and circular forms blending together so well! Perfect exposure/contast as well. I'm gonna say I'm not distracted by anything here- that left shadow I think pull in that side of the frame nicely, closing off the composition. With the lines at the lower left that are leading away, could be dangerous without that anchor there.... and it adds a bit of instant mystery as to what THAT shape is in reality....

    Strength: The contrast between the shadow and the brick wall; very clean lines. Weakness: I don't think I see one, perhaps the angle of the shadow in relation to the wall is a bit distracting - but that also creates a tension that could be positive.
