Very neat. This is the sort of image where I immediately look for breaks in symmetry, and here there are the cracks in the wood. They add character and prevent the composition from seeming cold, sterile. Like this a lot.

A symmetric composition, with lovely texture and detail.

Vibrant and engaging. Simple shapes but with enough going on to hold the attention.

I like this too. There’s a surprising degree of interest here, including complementary warm/cool colours, a variety of analogous blues, the pleasant geometric patterns, and an unexpected depth in the superficially flat structure – leading to interesting shadows and even some perspective effects in the upper corners. And of course all that luxuriant texture…

I find the slight pincushion distortion at the bottom mildly distracting, but normal people wouldn’t care. I seem to have a much higher tolerance for barrel distortion than pincushion distortion.

...ah yes, the old pincushion effect (in Inspector Clouseau voice). Yes that it slightly irksome, although I'm not particularly normal either. Should've dealt with that.
