Matthias: “Great, clean composition, a refreshing color scheme, and an interesting minimalist building facade – What I love about this kind of photography is that sometimes it’s hard to tell whether I’m looking at a photograph or a computer generated image. But the subtleties make the difference. Photographs are never 100% clean. In this case it’s the shadow that allows the viewer to guess it’s indeed a photograph and not a cgi. It could have easily been cropped out by the photographer, but I’m happy they didn’t do it, because to me those little “mistakes” breathe life into minimalist photography and give it a human touch. This image is my personal winner – everything done right in this one, in my opinion.”

Second Place: Trynidada

Matthias: “That’s the Maxxi in Rome designed by Zaha Hadid, isn’t it? I love that building. What a great capture. Clearly the reflection and the colors make this a great architectural photograph. The reflection of the older buildings in this very modern building’s window was well spotted and perfectly captured. Chapeau!”

Third Place: urban poetry

Matthias: “Another superb composition. The curved corten bridge is a great find and the composition is on point. I love that little white cloud in the first third of the photo. Also the color contrasts are great. I can almost feel the warmth of the corten steel. Very good work!”
