    Very interesting play of shadows and light, shapes and subject! Love the strong dramatic lighting on the diagonals which lead to the circles which lead to the center.
    Suggestions:
    Maybe a slight crop on the left but I like it as is.
    Response:
    Appreciate your constructive evaluation and the time you took to appraise the effect of light and shadow. As it has been said to "study the light" in one of the club presentations;I had a window of 90 minutes to chase the sunlight to obtain the affect I thought appropriate but about 40 pixs later my madness conclude with the submitted pix. Once again thank you for your comments.

    Absolutely gorgeous light and shadow, interesting shapes and textures throughout, and a pleasing composition.
    Suggestions:
    Space on the left adds nothing to the image; removing about half of it would still retain the balance of the composition.
    Response:
    My preference was to have a balence between negative space and positive space and attempt to achieve a sense of movement from left to right. I realize that it may be esoteric but for me the choice of cropping would have been antithetical. Your suggestion of making a centered photo would in my visual attempt would have made the pix static and no implied movement and yes I do have the type of pix you suggest but the cropped style seemed not to say anything to me at least. I accept your suggestions very heartily and I thank you for your pov and the time you took to evaluate my beginner's effort.

    This one is fun, and gives the eye plenty to look at and study without being overwhelmed. Also several ways to look at "centre"!
    Suggestions:
    Nada. Great play of light and shadow!
    Response:
    Greatly appreciate your evaluation and the time you took to check out "radiance centre " I studied the light coming through the window for a couple of days; then after several shots and shifting of the subject to obtain the parallel shadow lines and on an angle with dark space to the left to at least in my mind that of movement; I was suprized by the sunlight radiating from the pens atop the centre to see rays of light in the shadow of the circle; so decided to go with this one; which by the way was taken by standing close to the top of a 6 foot step ladder. I had a lot of fun chasing the sunlight for "the shot " Thank you for kind words.
