Great Shot Hi Paul. Also like the photo for the same reason you mentioned. But more than geometry I see a unusual simetry and something I found amazing was the fact that such "little" subject being able to "fill" the photo. (probably because of the entry/exit point of each line). Don't know if this was a strong crop but if so still carries great detail and lots of info on that ropes. Maybe you're right about the sky but blue and yellow (or yellowish) always end up great. In conclusion: I like (p.s.: thank you for your very formative comments on my shots. It really helped me. Thank you once again)

My absolute pleasure, Rui. I also wanted to share with you that I make it a point, whenever possible, not to crop! I pride myself on seeing the image in the viewfinder. I would say most of my images are not cropped. This was probably due to the fact that when I was younger, I didn't have the luxury of paying for custom lab work and what I shot was what I got! Maybe that was a blessing in disguise.

John: Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the nice comment. I also wanted to share with you that I try to the best of my ability never to crop a picture after I've shot it. That answers your questions regarding cropping. I feel as though if I don't see it in the viewfinder, then I didn't see it in the first place. It's just sort of a personal creedo. On occasion, I may miss something in the viewfinder and I am forced to crop for one reason or another but I would venture to guess that 98% of my images are as I see them. Once again, thank you!

Backdrop I don't know what to say other than, I love the geometry of this image. The background almost looks fake, like one of those old Hollywood backdrops. Looking forward to feedback. Thanks in advance...
