Interesting and worth the effort. Think it might need to have the saturation increased a little to add a bit of impact, but well seen and composed.

Good colourful image. I would say most of the skill in photography is in seeing the picture, which you have.
It would be possible, with a bit of time, to clone out the dirty bits at the bottom,

A very bright and colourful frame filling image that helps to dispel the gloom of a grey dreich drizzly day here: as Ian says, well spotted and very well captured.

As iancrowson says 'it's seeing the picture' which confirms if you've got an eye for photography.
I wondered what to expect when I saw the title!!!!
A lovely piece of art work well taken. Did you choose 800 ISO?
Indoor images are more difficult to gauge what ISO to use.
It does look very bright.Whether out or in you don't want to loose details in the highlights -
It's what we call 'burn out' where details are burned out. It happens with skies with a bright sun
or sunsets all the time.
With bright Australian sun, keep that ISO low.Remember Ronnie mentioned it to you.
Talking of Toilet Art - Dobbies have wonderful sinks which look like flowers.
I must take my camera there sometime.

It is well focused, cropped and colourful and makes a great abstract image, Clare.

Lowering the ISO would have lowered the shutter speed and it was nearly full aperture so might be pushing for hand held even with VR? Tripod?
I would have thought a Nikon D3100 being a modern camera would cope with ISO800 fine.

Nice, bright and colourful. Some lens distortion can be sorted out, and some of it is due to the fact the camera wasnt exactly parallel with the wall. Hardly noticeable really, expect there are those mortar lines in the bricks.

digital boi is spot on re the exposure being a little high, but I think resolving that needs to be countered by adding the vibrancy thats lost so the colours pop a little more.

Mod loaded

Very nice, Clare, you have filled the frame with the toilet art, but have left a clue at the bottom, so that the viewer might guess that it is painted on a wall. Otherwise, it could be anything from anywhere.
