This is something different. It would have been even better I think if it was taken from a different angle so as to not get the car in. This is only my opinion. I like it anyway.

Nice graphic subject, but do you mean to say that brooms are not commonly encountered in stores in the US? Do people use only mops and vacuum cleaners?

Excellent composition. It's an interesting POV, but I especialy like the colour of mops. Well done.

Olá Benedict, this was a good idea, with a very pleasing result. The repetition effect is very sucessful and the composition is perfect. I love the raw materials and their slighty dynamic disposal, as if there was wind coming from the left. Very good shot!

Hello Benedict! I like this shot very much. It is very pleasing to see a bunch of brooms taken together, as it gives you a comparison of each broom. The dryness of the grasses used and the design of the handles are interesting. I like your straight on shot, well done.
