This image is an abstract representation of an ancient site. Think circles and stones. The image combines structured, geometric shapes with organic freeform textures.

All C&C's welcome.

I like the composition on this one, like the geometric elements. The only thing I can say I would revisit is the second horizontal line across the picture plane.
Instead of the grey, I would pick up some of the darker values or color in the abstract piece below it for the line work. This might lend a better progressin toward the top to the lightest values.
Just an opinion, it still looks cool.

Nice piece! Like Pixels, I'd suggest changing the lower line. It might be good if you flipped the gradient on it and lost its edge with the whites in the top of the bottom image, and used a different dark, as Pixels suggested.

Cheers!

It's lovely Jim. I think I agree with the others though about that line. It seems to almost dissect the image with its present colour.

Good Morning.... when the opinion polls are running 100 percent, it's wise to listen ;-)

What do you guys think of this one?

Jim, very cool! Kind of makes me think of a Sci-Fi dvd cover.
