Balconies. These apartments overlooking the sea were an irresistible subject for me. The verticals have been made perfectly vertical in Photoshop to emphasise the pattern, though they're not far off in the original. Predictably a judge wanted a "person in a red shirt" on a division of thirds, but I prefer to let my eye wander over the identical balconies to find the small differences in the arrangement of the chairs and doors; a traditional focal point would discourage that.

Technical: NIKON D800, f=120.0 mm, ISO450, 1/800 sec @ f7.1
