    A simple, yet striking, interpretation of the theme. The triangular shapes are a key component of the composition and the story.  The monochrome choice reduces distraction from the shapes and textures.  The hard shadows lend depth. Good management of the tonal range.

    Suggestions:

    The composition is not quite centered, but not strongly so.  A slightly stronger assymetry might be lend strength to the image.

    Strengths:

    Great strong lines

    Suggestions:

    Higher contrast to achieve greater tonal separation might work here

    Nice simple image with the cloud reflections in the top left. I like the two different materials, rope and strapping and the circles coming off the rope work well with the reflection. Nice dark shadows too.

    Suggestions:

    I would have cloned out the little horizontal line in the top right.

    Very good and simple composition inventive intretation of theme utilizing two basic elements  to produce  multiple triangle shapes.  The camera was positioned perfectly casting shadows from the rope and what looks like a wood plank  to yield additional triangles

    Suggestions:

    The bright blown  out areas on the plank and uppper left portion of the photo  is overpowering and detracts from the subject matter
