    Hi Markus,
    I really like the tonal range in this shot. At first the image appeared “busy” but the more I looked around the image the more I noticed that the squares of the cage themselves were like individual mosaics. Cool stuff :-)
    Regards Roy

    I really like this shot Markus. It almost looks like you were shooting a miniature, not the real thing.

    A refreshing angle of Coney Island.

    I think this photo sums up city life very well. Living in an apartment block like those in the background can sometimes feel like living in a cage, but on the other hand, there are also many fun things to do in a city, like the roller coaster here.
