What intrigued me about this picture is the balance between the actual plants and the reflection of the very same plants with the vertical lines, of course inserting an almost conflict, acting as a barrier. However, I wasn't sure the lines truly served a purpose in the picture so I didn't feel confident.
I really enjoyed this picture because of the frame of the stairwell almost being a line in itself . However, I wasn't sure the handrail was enough of the line, and I felt the background was too distracting. Thus, it is a runner-up.
