Option A is the "winner" from the previous poll; the grayscale was suggested by the Minted Community, and the green Leaves on the grayscale background is a rather experimental design. For reference, these bricks are part of a pre-Civil War building in Birmingham and they are, in fact, on a downward angle, although I have taken the liberty to straighten them in certain versions...

A. I like the warmer tones. My eye went right to this one:)

I chose C. I like horizontal for this piece, and I like how the ivy fills the brick wall that is full of character (as opposed to B). My eye is first drawn to the purple at the top and then moves downward. I think that it has the best flow.

A feels like it has the most clear focus point, I'm drawn to the texture of the brick.

B. I prefer the graphic quality with the greenery taking up more space in the composition. It feels bolder, which I like.

I'm liking B, just wondering if you tried to square up bricks on top? Just a suggestion

A. This option has the most exposed red brick which I think complements the shot a little better than the other options.

I like the graphic quality of B, it's a stronger composition. I also like A, but the since the horizontals are slightly off, it seems aligned wrong. Have you tried squaring them up on all of the images?

I like this one because it seems to be the most level. Our eye natural wants to straighten images with strong lines.

I have to check my original; I think the bricks may actually be crooked! However, I agree with the point and will see what edits I can make!
