    I usually find this style of photograph a little bland but what catches the attention so well here is the combination of linear elements and the luminosity of the sky. Metering snow is not easy so kudos for that too, plus a really nice B&W conversion.

    Very beautiful and poetic!

    I like this photo very much simply because you seem to have caught the illicit mood both in terms of composition and the colour palette. The greyness is urban, the motorcyclist in the foreground adds greater context and the gentle distortion of the fisheye adds energy to the smoke and lads the eye round.

    I can't help thinking that the 10mm choice adds an extra sense of otherness to this image. Reading is a good photographic subject and the room itself comes out as a character in the photo - the WA view allows the room to embrace the readers without dominating them or being too claustrophobic.

    A neat capture!

    It isn't easy to capture flowers in a new context but this is the first time I have seen a field and buildings used in this context. Well spotted and very nice... there is a story here.

    A strong image - I do like the close crop. B&W works really well as the face paint is brought out so dramatically. Nice job...

    A very nice capture, with a strong graphic element and also a nice touch of nature in the snow. Well spotted - I wouldn't be supprised if the company would used the image.

    Hi Doug,
    Very nice shot ! I especially like the details of those rocks in the foreground, and how they disappear further in the water. The sky looks a bit 'unreal', but the result is very pleasant ! Feeling so quite and relaxing in front of this. Well done.

    Cheers,
    YousseF.

    Hi Yvonne,
    A nice composition for those buildings, even if the weather was strange, and the sky white. I like the opposition between that smooth wall, and the pavement on the street. It just lack some human presence, or were summer holidays already started :o)

    Cheers,
    Youssef.

    Hello Adrian,

    Great scene for those fjords we used to see completely different. The light is THE thing in this picture, through the clouds, over the mountains, on the water. Very good choice of B&W to emphasize all this. Congratulations !

    Cheers,
    Youssef.

    Hi Christian,
    I was attracted by that light on the water and I really like it. And even with that harsh light, you managed to get proper results and details on the rocks, well done !

    I also like that small cloud hanging around, as bringing some smoothness in this hard scene.

    Regards,
    Youssef.
