    Had to go with Samsite, as for some reason I just really feel like voting for something with some harsh colour in it.

    I like it that it's a flat field, then all of a sudden a whacking great monolith.

    I went for Alucard's! The most striking image by far, I think. Nice composition, perfect exposure. Interesting shot; probably has a story to it.

    I was torn between Alucard and Samsite. Alucard just had that whole 'Moses in a Hat' thing going on.

    Samsite's is a teeny bit too saturated imo. I like the symbolism and the composition is daring but it works. I like the contrast of colour and of content.

    Claude's is nice enough but a bit oversaturated for my taste. There's a fine line between improving a picture and spoiling it, with too much post work.

    Jonton's use of black and white is really well chosen. Great strong lines and forms. Shame about the glare; its a really strong image. It has character somehow.

    I like gazamc's image, but I think it would be neat if the whole bottom part was cropped off, so that you had a sort of surrealist image to represent the nature of the building, which looks quite modern and daring itself. It would be very interesting that way, especially as you could say that it is the correct way up, when it would look sideways.

    Also the light is better on the top part.

    after a lot of umming and arring i went for Insane i just love the picture, i dont know why, might be because the contrast, or is it what you dont see in the image and you end up gussing whats there, alucard was a runner up, again techcncly the shot is spot on, contrast, color ballence, exposer, the person on the left with the hand extended leading you in to the middle of the picture, the composer is spot on, im my opinion the ony thing letting it down was the content of the buildings, my other choice would have been claude the sky was amazing, and i kind of like the steeple set off at a angle, i think Chillipepper image could of done with beying a little more croped to bring what was drawing the attention a little more? im not sure i made my self cleare.... Any how, the content and the pictures i see here EVERY week of the regulars is getting better and better, i can see a marked improvment in allmost everyonce work, including my own so happey CA!!!

    Votes are only partly representative. . . But i guess in this forum it is a good way to get an opinion of what other people think.
