You will surely have multiple winners again this month, Katarina. This is my pick for favorite -- I love candid people captures and to have three for one well I'm just delighted. The tones work perfectly. Other picks include Eingang, Liverpool and @ for EOD which you do so very well and I also like Levels, Divine Design and Optical Illusion -- just put the ones they skip back in as they are all winners :) Great work as always. #8199696
