I agree with Sönke.

The first four seem a bit too USM:d on my screen, though quite interesting scenes.

Another fan of #6 here. Love the framing of the cloudscape in the architecture.

Nr 3 is great but I agree with the others here, nr 6, slighly different from the rest, works best for me.
Thanks for sharing Waldo, always a pleasure to see your work.

#6 definitely looks the most "Harald" to me - graphically strong with good colour contrast. Has to be my favourite.

One of the things I find intimidating on Dyxum is the technical level of the shots - not least your own. Would it be childish of me to be relieved by the dust bunny in the middle of #4?

A good job, unbelievable set.
The 6 and the 5 mine prefer.
the 6 appears as a bridge among the clouds.
Good heavens, after a careful observation the 1 is very beautiful

What a beautiful place to bee Harald. The energy must have been very good there. I like fogy images very much.
Your last image (sky bridge) has your style for sure.
Some of previous images have a bit of some kind of artifacts like from over sharpening or something like that, that is land only parts. But that doesn't take away too much from their beauty.
Thank you for sharing

I really like both number 5 and number 6. I can't easily choose between them, but for the moment I will say I like 5 the best. Very lovely images and compositions.
