    Yay, contest's up.

    Hmf... You sons of bitches. They all look good I'll be back to make my decision, but I'm leaning towards the one with the umbrellas. Very atmospheric.

    So many nice photographs! I'm not sure if it's harder making them or voting for just one of them.

    ...I'll edit this post with my vote and thoughts later.

    I really liked #5 , voted for that. The little detail of the lone fisherman is what did it for me.

    Ended up voting for umbrella one.

    Some constructive criticism, because I'm a professional photographer, so my opinion matters

    #6 is a nice photo, but it has too much contrast. Because of all of the white surfaces, it gives a kind of blinding feeling. So if you lower that, I think it'll improve it.

    #7 is a bit too plain, imo. The angle of the photo is too head on. Find a different angle, and I think it'll look better. It also lacks a bit of a focus point.

    #2 , I think it's been cropped a bit If not, I'd take a few steps back to give it a bit of a wider angle, so it breathes a bit more. But fuck if I know Perhaps there are things in front that kind of ruins the picture.

    I liked all of the entries, however there is lack of "creativity" when I look at them.

    The theme here is Black and White, and you don't have to associate them with objects that represent that, but it would have been nice to see some similarity. A creative thought in link with that. As OP says the photos should be judged on creativity, originality and if it catches the eye.

    Now beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    So apart from all the entries with a filter plastered on them, I can personally resonate with photo taken by entry #4 .

    It really touches me, it's not an original but it is pleasant to look at. I often was told the phrase `There is always light at the of the tunnel.` during years of hardships. So yeah, really like that one. Light = white, black = darkness

    Nevertheless, these entries are awesome!

    At the end of the tunnel*

    Good luck, everybody!

    I think all entries, bar 6 and 7, try to do that. Some have grey skies (the 1st one and the fishing one), others are dark with some light focuses (the fire in the dark, the giant wheel in the night, the light at the end of the tunnel)
