4 for me, love the muted colours and canvas look. It also has people in it too.

I spotted a screw-head near the top left-corner; hence deduced that this was a picture of a scaled down model of downtown New-york. If you see the lighting as well, it is apparent (IMHO of course). Either that, or my old eyes are seeing things

The finalist photographs are wonderful, it is difficult to choose, perhaps I will lean towards number 7.

Just stunning!

All of these entries are simply stunning and inspiring! In the end, the dreamlike quality of number 4 did it for me. Very hard to choose!

#11 for sure. For me I'm still trying to figure out what it is. And I love it in b+w.
My pick also, itís so different and minimalist and love it in B & W as well. Shows the strength of the place- just fantastic!

I understand the enthusiasm for 15, but it is the non-architectural elements that make it so stunning. I think at least half of them deserve to win (well, really they all could). I went for 3, for impact and then recognition.

So hard to pick just one!!! I really like #1 because there's such a strong sense of actual people having lived and worked in the buildings (although they aren't visible) for a rather long time, contrasting with the very modern boats, and the colors are great. I truly hope to one day travel somewhere and photograph something as historically stunning as that photo - hanging it on a wall in my home would be so wonderful. On the other hand, the primacy of just the building, and the amazing detail work of the ingenuity of those who built it, combined with the photographer who captured a perfect detail of the building, are shown - to me - so well in almost all the rest of them. But it came down to #2 #3, #5, #10, & #14 which are stunning captures and which one would I want a print of to hang in my home. So, I pick #5.

I agree about #15. I was also thrown out of the shot by the light trails (from a car?) on the bottom left, showing a slower shutter, but the lightning being so sharp... so wondered about it being a composite or not...?

What a difficult choice! I kept changing my mind but eventually decided #11 for its different perspective.
