Whenever I have trouble understanding composition I click on your gallery for inspiration. The way you see and evision your image to be is amazing in its own right. But, everything is right about your work, the colors, the tonality, the details are all excellent.

A book is needed on composition excellence in architecture, Katarina. And if it comes about, I think your work should star.

Congratulations on your superior first place win. #8844610
