    Like the compositions here. I actually prefer the first over the second .. dunno why, just speaks more to me. I suppose it is the straight lines being so utterly disrupted by the diagonal and the curvatures that makes it for me. Dig the composition a lot.

    I prefer shot 2. I would think about cropping out the little bit of diagonal brickwork at the top right. I find it a bit of distraction. I also find the diagonal wire in shot 1 distracting too because everything else is predominately vertical or horizontal.

    Love that second shot, and agree with Antz about cropping out upper right distraction.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Most people walk probably walk right by and don't pay any attention to walls like this. You've turned that wall into something interesting. Nicely spotted and composed.

    very cool brickwork and the large number of re-enforcing back-up plates on the wall of varying ages add to the character. Makes me wonder whether or not this building was a forge or near a rail line/yard.

    Yes, it's in a rail yard.
