Ulana, this is a really nice set. I find the last to be particularly nice; haunting actually.

Nice set!  Congrats on completing the challenge!

I'd like to submit two sets--one that I prepared for printing and another captured recently. The first set is titled "Architecture", and it League Ceiling - SquareParos Staircase - SquareLake Walk - SquareCourtroom 1 - Squaredisobeys all of Raaj's rules. There are only four images, and they were captured in the past and only processed for printing in October and November.

MoonlightMy second set was captured recently. It's titled "Sky", and the constants of the set are the subject matter, the horizon line and the format. I had my Nikon focused at the sky over a couple of months, and whenever the sky revealed a different mood, I shot.Dawn

@Lucia

Great concept, with exciting results.  For those not aware, these are from Lucia's home on Lake Michigan, looking west.

Of the sky shots, #2 is my favorite, with its subtle transitions from blue to red to blue.  But I'm guessing you were shooting from inside through glass, based upon you narrative and the vertical patterns in the image.  #4 is a close second with those downward flowing orange wisps moving toward the orange horizon.

While each of these is striking in its own right, the ordering of them is a bit jarring.  For example, going from 4 to 5, which are nicely related by color tones, jumps from a horizontal sense to a vertical sense.  Re-arrangement by complexity of texture might be one way to smooth the transition from one image to the next.

@ Lucia, architectural shots.

I'm not sure what Raaj's rules are, but I like these.  #4 works best, with the concentric curves and smooth gradations of tone.

#1 has pleasant rhythms and strong tonal variation.  (You might consider healing the dark spot on the ceiling to the left of the largest light, and even the dirt at the bottom of the light fixture.)
