Those shadows combine with the tiles to make a very complex pattern, but its charm lies in the fact that it is so visually challenging. I like it a lot.

Very abstract and a very full view of the continuing shapes in V1 but I really like the symmetry and close detail of V2.

Love this image Richard. So many alternatives. First version just holds that extra "something" for me as it looks a little less symmetrical - just more appealing. Great take
