At first glance, this is a beautifully striking tessellating pattern well worthy of the greatest in the field. However when taking architectural images like this where the main draw is it's symmetry, you really need to be damn sure it's perfectly symmetrical.

Take for example the top right corner's triangle and compare it to the left's. It's bigger, and it's something that stands out like a sore thumb in images like this.

I think this is fantastic, nice shades and interesting to look at, but those simple errors detract quite a bit. Easy way to fix this is to open it up in PS, cut and paste half the image over the other with a low opacity and use it as a guide to free-transform it to perfection.

Thanks for the very fair and objective critique, Sven.
Now that I think about it, perhaps it would have been better if I just laiddown on the floor taking this rather than standing up. Haha! Trying to get it symmetrical is much harder than it looks.

It also doesn't help when lenses will distort straight lines no matter how hard you try. These types of shots need to be post-processed to all buggery.
