A fine chamber-music-like photo.
There is a little story to it about payphones, how they look in this corner of the world, how they are (not) used and how they are treated.
Formally a few themes are played through, the surface of the wall versus the lines of the phone installation, the dark and flat red of the bricks versus the shiny alu of the phones, symmetry with slight variation and the pattern of the shadow.
These elements can of course be found in most photos, but here they are clearly articulated. There is a certain risk of boredom in this kind of composition but you avoid it, good work.

Thanks alot for that very thoughtful critique. I will admit, that series was tough for me to pull together. The opening bit had to be nice and happy "Main Street," but I found it so hard not to at the same time be boring. I'm still not satisified with all the elements, but by doing the project I did learn a few things! So it's all a plus!

Thanks again!
