yiannis krikis from thessaloniki, Greece

very nice b&w image - I love the game with the shadows

@yiannis krikis: Thanks Yiannis! - Yes ...'game' is a good word for it as the shadows amused me too and made me smile!
For anyone from the UK (like me) strong light and shadows like these are very exotic as we never normally get light like that so this photo also reminds me of the Meditteranean which I love.

Ralf Kesper from Attendorn, Germany

dee from Innsbruck, Austria

Interesting architectural study. Good lighting!

@dee: Thanks Dee! - I always find that there's something very satisfying about diagonal lines in photos and I guess that it was that side of it as much as the architecture that I liked!
