Comments on these two welcome- I sort of like the first, but feel that maybe it needs a crop? Or something else?
Neat design the brick had that the second showcases. nice exposure.

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.

That's fascinating brick work!
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.

Ya, very fascinating.

Love that second shot, and agree with Antz about cropping out upper right distraction.

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.

Cool set and good eye for seeing it! - I might crop out an inch or so from the top of shot 1. Your crop through the 3 whitish circular electrical components is a distraction for me.
I might try to convert this to BW/Monochrome actually - I'd be willing to bet it would be equally strong if not stronger. It's already quite vintage looking and the BW would help to really push it in that direction.... and I do not know who originated the phrase 'colour is the enemy of form'...but for me this shot is much more about the lines and form than the reddish colour in the brick.
Hope that may help - just my :twocents:

Helps a lot Marko; I'll try it!

Wow, I especially love the second one. It would be great if you show us more of them. The little potions of this brickwork will tell a lot of stories.

I'm a little late to the party here but it's certainly a nice find. I agree with Marko on the three little white bits across the top so I would crop there but I would suggest that you also crop the left side up to the line in the brick. If you do this you will end up with a diagonal line from the exact corner of the image going down and to the right. The math student in me likes the geometry of that solution.
Again, it's amazing the interesting stuff you see when you start photographing. Most people will walk by something like this and not even see the interesting contrasts and patterns. Good eye.
