This image is a feast for the eyes. Great job capturing the symmetry.
Perhaps indeed some parts look a bit oversharpened, I can be lazy at times and instead of resharpening from scratch(selectively or in full)...I sometimes cheat and slightly blur those jaggies away ;)

Many thanks to you all--MCsaba, Roland and Michael--for those friendly comments! Though I can see clearly which of the image's lines you find "a bit oversharpend", MCsaba, I consider this sharpening to be still acceptable; I shall, nevertheless, try a slightly less sharpened version to post, as soon as I'll have a quiet moment (I've just come back home from a one week's trip). -- db.

Lots of lines and patterns and great colors here. To me it looks a bit oversharpened, may be due to size reduction. MCsaba
