Very interesting graphical effect in this shot, it's almost like one of those magic eye pictures. Very nicely seen and structured shot
All the best

Hi Daniel - a sharp, almost painful image, but an attractive and well taken one. The high contrast and circular pattern makes it almost an optical illusion here. I like that you've framed it off center as well, which adds to the effect. Beautiful, graphical and minimal - thanks!

I'm ashamed to confess that I have been in this gallery so often and that I never was aware that there are such splendid photo opportunities.
What a wonderful visual effect!
Best regards, Paul

un gran colpo, da una bella idea, un'eccellente risultato. Bella l'idea del b%w, non distoglie l'attenzione e rende ancora più ipnotizzante la visione.

I really like this well-spotted detail. Makes me a bit dizzy looking at it - it's not a criticism by the way.:)

I am not sure what exactly I can see on your shot however I love the visual effect! Brilliant composition and presentation in b&w to make it more visible. Excellent work! TFS.

Looking at this one I get quite dizzy with all these patterns and lines. The picture seems to draw one in like a black hole.
Interesting scene indeed.
have a good evening

C'est une composition très graphique, presque hallucinante. J'aime l'originalité et la simplicité.
Bon dimanche et Joyeuses Pâques

HI dear Daniel
It seems we've both been hanging out in shopping centres lately. Lucky its for the photos and not to spend money :) This place is a haven for photographers, and your captured this detail so clerverly. I like the tight frame and the sensational graphism. B&W was a great choice. Congratulations!
