Thanks to everyone who entered Challenge81 "Urban Scenes". I know we often say this, but we really did find it hard judging this week’s challenge because there were so many excellent photographs for us to choose from. You took the theme and ran with it and came up with some real corkers. The scenes you have shown us gave us a great snapshot of Urban FT life.


We have chosen StevenF’s picture as this week’s overall winner. Grafitti is a familiar sight to most people who live in a city and Steven has managed to make it look colourful and decorative as a frame to the steps. It is a well-balanced, well-lit portrait of urban life. Congratulations Steven!

The winning picture is displayed above and you can see the original with its comments at the link below:


Glo gets second place this week with this portrait of sprawling rooftops in Mexico. What struck us about this was the abundance of colour amidst a display of homes which appear, from a distance, to all be very similar.
Glo’s picture is representative of others which interpreted the theme in same way and we liked those too.

In third place is ElektrikBlue for this snapshot of a lone man oblivious to the life that is going on around him. A clever use of colour separates the subject from the urban setting.



We have chosen 8 honourable mentions this week, all of which we thought were excellent! We recommend looking at them all in original size to get the full effect.

Misterrie’s vast Malaysian sky-line:

Olympe’s indoor urban escalator:

Thea’s Italian traffic jam:

Bojtorjan’s busy Seattle scene:

SamWiseWoahZay’s abandoned car park:

Mariolina’s view from above:

MLV’s commute at dusk:

And finally, Zamo’s dark and dramatic rooftops:


Well done everybody, give yourselves a big pat on the back!

Watch this space for Challenge82….
