Judges' Choice Winner, 2019
Due to the reflection of the water at night, the architecture of the buildings shows us the figure of a fish, perhaps prehistoric with its heart still alive.
Public's Choice Winner, 2019
The new Moscow metro station is made in a futuristic style.
The House of the Black Madonna is a cubist building in the Old Town area of Prague, Czech Republic. The building was designed and built between 1911 and 1912. Josef Gocár built the house as the first example of cubist architecture in Prague, and it remains probably the most celebrated.
I use minimalism as a method of enabling clarity. My process eliminates distraction, keeping the viewer focused on the purest elements of photography; form, light, texture and the way these components amalgamate.
In the past, faux facades were rare and temporary interventions in urban spaces, but today they have become a part of the city landscape, only being changed from time to time.
This is an aerial view of the underground entrance to the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw. It is an excellent example of axonometry in architecture.
This picture shows the peaceful coexistence of old and new architecture. The buildings don't fit together, but they are not fighting against each other. They show the creative development in the City centre.

The intervention of man in nature is not always bad. The photo shows the tranquillity of nature and a balcony from where people can better appreciate it.
When I photographed La Muralla Roja, it felt like being in a De Chirico painting for the dreamlike feel of the place. This image encapsulates for me the sense of light and colour in photography that I enjoy most, and which are important to my work. The blue frame offers a cinematic view as entering into a new dimension and the soft tones of the early morning light captures the calmness and quietness of the building in its setting.
Bexhill Promenade Shelter
It is an elegant and appealing solution to a mundane problem.
The photo is an example of needful interaction between humans and buildings. Without the busy people cleaning the giant glass frames of the tower, the building would look quite ugly.
