[Between Wilson & Downsview Subway Stations, Toronto]
Love the patterns of lines here -- parallel and vertical. Well seen. I'm not sure how I feel about the bar running just at the top left. Hmm. What do you think? Might it be better if it were cropped out? But I like what you've seen here.

@GJC: Thanks, GJC! I was quite aware of the diagonal bar at the top and left it in just to add a certain visual dissonance to the image. I'm in favour of the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, meaning that to me adding a note of the imperfect strengthens the work as a whole, or in this case rescues the image from the oppression of a world with only horizontal and vertical lines.
Or maybe I'm wrong.
Lots of funky horizontals.

The Wilson Yard, I lived north of it and would bus into the subway. I like the shot, a large shot of the yard would be impressive.

Qué fuerza que tiene esta composición. El b/n estupendo y ayuda a realzar la fuerza de la imagen. Un saludo.

The linearity and layering of this shot is great and I think it would be strengthened even more with a small crop to get rid of the conflicting angle that creeps in top left

@Ian Bramham: Heh heh - exactly the opposite of my thought! To me that conflicting angle completes the shot, rescues it from an infinity of right-left, up-down, throws out of lifeline stating that life is indeed more complex (and that overcooked metaphors are evil). Thanks, Ian!
