The colours including those running off is what makes this image interesting as also the symmetry. The combination of the greens and the red is well captured.

Very nice photo. I like the bit of red with the green, complementary colors and reminding of the holiday season. The fluorescing of the copper color down the wall does give it texture along with the stucco. I like the curvature apparent in the photo, it is what made me click and want to put in my 2 cents. KP

Nice picture, with some textures and an obvious symmetry to the pipes and taps. It almost feels like an alien from some planet. Colours are vibrant which made me click the picture and work for me. There is also just the right amount of red in the picture, I feel. My only criticism is the fact that I can appreciate and feel the distortion, slightly disconcerting for me based on the curved horizontal 'brick' line and that makes the two circles feel funny. 2 thumbs up

wonderful symmetry-----both in the design of the stand pipe, air-vents, water outlet collection-----and the green stains (from the copper) on the wall-----Excellent eye spotting and shooting this! Image is not quite level----should be rotated clockwise just a bit---using the ledge on the building as a guide.Bruce
