I shot this and thought B&W, but in the end I liked the color better.

    I agree. The orange lines attract the eye better. The brain tries and fails to link them all together, which I think is a good thing. Makes me look at it longer. The composition is interesting. Do you have other views?

    A couple of square shots.

    First square shot is a winner. The business is gone in that one.

    Can I suggest a slight re-cropping of the first of those square comps just above? The very top left corner has a distracting lit triangle that can be lost. Similarly, the bottom left corner has a tiny darker triangle that adds nothing. Losing both might strengthen the finished work.

    The original version and the first " square " shot appear to me to be identical. The last image shown is my choice.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Hi Tom, originally it was a rectangular shot, but when I uploaded the square version to my site it also updated original.

    I will follow David's crop suggestion for the first square shot.

    Thanks

    I tried David's suggestion and ended up with a square crop that is in a different angle so I wouldn't lose the reflection on the bottom.

    Oh, yes. Better. And I don't think it matters much which orientation of this final image is the top, or the side, etc. If I couldn't have figured it out before, I still can't. Which is good. It is a dynamite abstract image.

    Love the final rendition Cristóbal.

    Colors, light, contrast, angles, the image has it all. Good eye.

    Yes, even as a super fan of B&W, keeping the image in full color was the right choice....much more striking.

    Thanks Gato, I agree, color was the way to go.
