    Great EOD in this extremely well captured image, Katarina. The contrast of light and shadows is wonderful. Well composed.

Great shapes here, Katarina -- hard to say whether the light or the dark areas are more interesting. This plays cool tricks on my eyes. Well seen and captured.

I love the abstract feel of this... whether the black shadow is the main element, or the brighter stone surfaces... I'm hope we'll see it again!

Love the composition, sharpness, DOF, shape repetition and form, as well as the details of low angle lighting. Well seen and captured as well as rendered.
Congratulations on your sought after POTD, Katarina. No doubt we'll be seeing this again.

How cool Katarina!! Congrats on your great POTD!

Have been unable to comment due to power outages from all the terrible tornado's here in north Alabama, thankfully the power is back on and we are safe, so sad though for soooo many that lost everything and the so many life's lost too!
