      I guess this must be stunning in person. Not so much as it is. Good for another mosaic though!

      Edit: I've come back to this, and I've changed my mind. It does have enough detail to be really interesting.

      I'm torn with this. Great comp. Great subject but tonally it's a little dull. What the hell. It's good. I'll even the score.

      cool

      I agree with Jonathan (that's a first!) about the great comp, but it's too dark and seems to be screaming out for some highlight sliding. Close, but uncool

      For all those saying it's too dark... that may be so, but this is what it looked like.

      I know photography is illusion and very little is real. The solid squares, on the other hand, are about as true a subject as I shoot. No levels adjustment. No funky color business (I only touch the white balance to correct obvious errors). No fancy lighting, no contrast adjustments. I do futz with the exposure, but only to get it back to where it "should" be.

      In other words, you're all a bunch of macaroons.

      do futz? what's that mean?

      Bummer dude. Your photo wasn't cool enough for The Icebox. Feel free to throw it in the pile with the rest of the melted muck, and better luck with your next submission.
