April Challenge - CITY

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Wim for setting March's subject, and apologies for including a photo that was not taken by me. It was taken by my wife, but it was such a lovely moment for me to be in that forest with these birds all around me. It fit the theme so well that I completely forgot one small detail of the challenge - that the contributor has to be the owner of the picture. Oops. 

 

Anyway, at the moment I am in magnificent Berlin, probably my favourite city ever. So, the theme of the April challenge is CITY. It can be well known landmarks or unknown backstreets, people alone or in crowds, night or day. Send 'em in, a maximum of three per person and I will sort out 8 on April 30th. 

 

The last few challenges have seen a really high standard of pictures, so I am looking forward to seeing some great shots on the theme of CITY.

 

Cheers

 

Colin

Congratulations to the Leader of the Opposition (LOTO) ;)

 

And also to you Colin, an interesting challenge which by decree will attract interesting views of interesting cities.

Not that it matters too much for this one but Alamy only or any photograph?

We have had a few discussions on whether non-alamy images are accepted into the challenge. I prefer to keep it as alamy only images so for this theme I will say that the entries must be from your alamy selection. Great shots already, and the sun is out here in Berlin.

Cheers
