An immaculate execution for this landscape: great composition, well balanced colors, sharp details, perfect DOF.
The contrast between the green of the grass, the yellow of the leaves, the blue of the water and the gray of the cloudy sky really makes this picture a piece of art.

I remember traveling through Turkey and being astonished by the number of cats populating the various ruins, but I never managed to get such a great shot of the two things combined.
The fiery look on the cat's face perfectly matches the majesty of these timeless ruins.
Also, the slightly blurred background forces the viewer to focus on the furry friend, but without missing the whole setting.

A beautiful capture of this forest, with the converging perspective of the trees making the river and the rocks in the foreground literally pop out of the screen.
Sharp details and great colors too.
Thanks for sharing

A very original idea and per perfect execution: one gets captured by the symmetries and the lights, and really feels compelled to read your note to understand how you created this shot.

A powerful choice of POV, with the names of some of the victims in the foreground and, in the background, the city that without forgetting the tragedy is still there, alive and kicking.
Thanks for sharing

A superb capture of this mill, perfectly reflected on the water. I like the vividness of color of the building: it really make it stand over the rest of the composition, while still leaving the whole scene perfectly balanced.

Combining flowing water and long exposures is a very common trick, but this picture you made is really an eye catcher that stands among the others.
I like the POV you chose, with the stones in the foreground that create captivating geometries.
Well balanced colors and very sharp details.
