I prepared this for this months challenge, frame and all! But on seeing Steve's being rejected due to the curves, I thought the wavy lines on the pencils would also exclude this.
So rather than waste it I thought to post it here, so that's the reason for this one.

Jeffrey, this months challenge is: 'An image comprising primarily of straight lines...' It does NOT say ONLY straight lines. From my dictionary: 'Primarily: adverb: principally; chiefly; mainly.' - therefore this image would have been a superb candidate for the challenge as it is comprised 'principally, chiefly, mainly' of straight lines.

Oh dear.

.. Love - it ! The colours are so vibrant they practically vibrate ! It's a smasher Jeff!

An excellent image for any challenge requiring streight lines Very well setup and tagen, the strong colours make it very eyecatching.

A fantastic shot Jeffrey, well thought out and executed, like it loads.

What a shame Jeffrey you could have had this as this months challenge. A super vibrant & colourful crisp shot. Well taken.

Looks like this month's Challenge has been a challenge to most of us, me included, to work out what is in and what is out. As George "helpfully" pointed out its down to me I have to say this would suited it perfectly - in my view. I like the strong, vibrant colours very much. The detail really leaps out, too.

A super, colourful picture. A prime contender for explaining DoF to beginners. with shots focused on the 2nd or 3rd row in at differing apertures would explain everything.

This works very well with lots of texture and colour, I think it would have been a winner in this months challenge
