Another from my archives, the structural members of a water tower. I found the ordered complexity of geometric shapes as well as the shadows to be interesting.

I really like it! You're right- there's something about the shapes here that makes it work. Maybe it's the 3d effect combined with all the triangles!

Thanks much, Adam! I love the repetition of shapes here, especially the fact that there are curves mixed in with so many hard angles and straight lines.

A bit too much geometry for my taste... The rendering and tones are pretty nice actually.
