    This one grabbed me and held on so it's my top pick. I know how difficult it can be getting this kind of detail and lighting right and you have this framed just right for me. I don't think it will win because often viewers go for the simple and clean shot. For me, you have this technically perfect, and it is clearly an artistic interpretation. Add to the fact that it is a complex shot that takes time to "discover" and you check all my boxes. This is more than a pretty bird shot; it is quite superior in my view.

    Love all the variety in this shot, the various shades of red brick, and the different shaped doors and windows, some lighted, some not.

    Lovely and sharp. Wish there was a bit more visible at the top of the shot and maybe a bit less at the bottom. Seems to lack a focal point as my eyes keep on wandering randomly without ever finding something to focus on. Love the way they have inset the downpipes.

    i like the detail in this, and your composition. It is an interesting subject - differing lives but without any visible people - and must have been hard to balance the highlights/shadows.
2 minor points - had you considered cropping the very bottom off (below the greenery line) and maybe cloned out the numbers which are a minor distraction

    An interesting structure - well shot, with great colors.

Jul 13, 2018
    lighting, color, subject all good. Wonder if you had not cropped so tightly on top and given me a little viewing space above that last upper green door (include a bit of the balcony that presumably sits there)

    Love this, great red, green and yellow colors !

    What a beautiful old building, photographed wonderfully! Everyday architecture as art at its best. Really like the way you can see inside the window. I'm undecided about the bottom part of the image, it makes it look like the top part of the building is cut off. Still, great shot, very high in my TT.

    Outstanding sharpness and detail. Excellent exposure of both the bright interior and the exterior of the building. I like the symmetrical, frame-filling composition. If possible I would try to exclude the dark area at the foundation and include some brick above the windows and doors at the top of the frame so that the image is effectively framed by red bricks on all four sides. High fav.

    What a difference a light makes! (Or several lights.) I love all the detail in this.
