I don’t know why I could have bet you would choose this one 😉. The place was actually very impressive I must say.

Challenging contest...

I think it's very difficult to 'judge' and review photography. There are always aspect that attract and distract the viewer that are not related to the actual photo... as viewers, we all bring our baggage, plus a lot depends on the viewers equipment (scre... 

Super interesting that your top two....

are the same as my own only inverted . I did not even look at your post before making up my mind and posting. Cheers, Filip

Many thanks for your detailed opinion Casey

And of course yes you are right it is very subjective to rank photos and this is why the reason of the choice was for me more important than the choice itself. And I have chosen very different ones on purpose to see if there is a consensus at the end or v... 

#1 - great composition that draws the eye in

 By: ksmith : December 5th, 2018-19:07
The others are nice, but this one is a step above the rest. (See what I did there...)

Thank you for your input ksmith

Others will come... 😉

I favour number 4 and number 2 in that order. Number 1 could have been on the podium (possibly a winner). The only problem I see with it is (guessing) due to post processing. It looks to me like the jpeg file couldn't handle it. Best

Thanks for your vote claes

 By: Mike H : December 6th, 2018-22:29
The funny thing is that there is NO post processing for this one ! You can go to the Musée d’Horlogerie in Glasshütte and see it with your eyes 😉. But nice podium anyhow . As I was saying I was more interested by the rationale than the votes themselves so...

To me, the way the colours bleed out, looks like jpeg rendering when for example exposure is increased without sufficient information to back it up. Is there some added compression going on when images are uploaded to the website?

Great photos, Mike.

My top 3: 1. Louvre Pyramid (#7) for a specific personal reason 2. Starry night (#3). I just love that romanticism 3. Baselworld entrance (#5), just a cool photo. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you my friend 🙏

 By: Mike H : December 6th, 2018-22:32
I am glad it brought you some good memories in mind


 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 6th, 2018-01:00
1,3, that order. 1 is the winner for me as it appeals to my taste. The colour is just astonishing but also I love how the stairs take you around the image. That movement is what appeals.

Thanks Joe 🙏

 By: Mike H : December 6th, 2018-22:34
Yes that staircase is cool I have to agree, and as we often say blue is the color of love isn’t it ?

Contest results...

 By: Mike H : December 10th, 2018-02:29
I would have expected that some pics would stand out from others but at the end I am amazed how diversified the results are. I gave marks as per your votes 1 2 3 and given a "4" for the pics that were not selected by the voter. Obviously the winning pics ...
