[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was walking around and found this perfect diagonal on a brick wall. It looked a little dull by itself so I took a self portrait. I had to sit hunched down and had problems not falling over thus the smile:)

It was a nice little study in lines (albeit not really leading).

Hei Cato,
Interesting composition, simplicity rules!
Good textures in the brick wall, pleasant tonality but a bit harsh light in the face though...

This is fantastic!!
What a shot! I love it!
The composition is great, allowing the diagonal shadow to line up from one corner to the other, across the pattern of the bricks.
I also love your placement in the image, and the smile just completes it for me.
Best photo I've seen today.
Great work, thanks for sharing it!

Hi Cato
very cool
I liked the choice of the B&W, the lines itselves, the great composition and diagonal contrast of the light and shadow zone in the photo, good balance, and the sharpness
well done.

Hi Cato,
I really like the POV and the black and white tones of the picture. Great focusing and details.

Exellent composition for this portrait Cato, unusual and creative, bravo.
