Another very difficult one to judge. The vastly different approaches really made me think about my choice. The shots gave the subject many different perspectives and made them hard to judge against each other. Bravo to all who made it to this round.

I didn't have much trouble deciding - I quickly narrowed my choices to just a couple and was able to select what I felt was the best based on subject of 'Towers and Spires' along with the photo quality.

One thing that really helped me was studying each photo with the subject Towers and Spires on my mind! This helped me to eliminate my choices by asking myself as I viewed each photo "What does the eye go to first? How much of the photo contains other elements that distract me from the subject? Is the Tower or Spire photographed just an element of a larger picture?"

What I find interesting is in how many of these photos the buildings in the photos lean back. A bit of attention to adjusting the geometry of the buildings either by using shift lenses or adjusting the photo in post would greatly have improved a number of these photos.

What an interesting group of photos, the differing approaches help highlight how broad a subject this can be interpreted as, the different use of perspectives when faced with these tall subjects is interesting too, well done to all the finalists

Once again a great selection of photos with very different approaches to the task. I'm already looking forward to the monthly competitions in 2024 (with the intention of taking part more often myself)

Sorry. A message came up that said "you already voted." Didn't mean to vote twice.

No worries, you're fine.

Tough selection this month, I'm sure many of us were tempted to vote more than once!

It was tough. I briefly thought about creating a score sheet with the various judging elements, but quickly abandoned that idea and voted on instinct.

Very nice pictures. However, some of the promising candidates are so heavily post processed that they seem unnatural in a direct way that made it impossible for me to vote for them.
