And this is what Dyxum brings to me - a great look at a place that I will never visit and there is nothing in the U.S. (where I live) that even remotely looks like it. As to the images, I love minimalist scenes so #8 is the winner for me with #22 a close second. However, both of these do not really show the unique feel and look of the island. In that regard #'s 17 and 20 are wonderful small looks. The mystery of #18 and all the interesting detail in #10, so wonderfully composed, are superb as well.

Wonderful series of images that covey the specialness of this place.
All are striking but my favourites (and there are many) are ##5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 18 and 20.
Looking forward to seeing at least some of them showcased in POTW exhibitions.
Thanks for sharing.

Yes, it's Bornholm - mostly Svaneke and Aarsdale. The ferry rides are from Sassnitz to Roenne and from Roenne to Ystad.

Thank you all for your kind comments!

A wonderful set of photos! I can see why you like it so much!

The shots that stand out for me the most as faves are #4, #9 And #21...... though all are fantastic and could each be picked.

Number ten for me is my favorite. Btw number 17 very early or very late with that same composition would be a cracker in the right light. Tfs

A lovely series Harald with a nice mixture of shots that convey the charm of the place (#6, #8, #11, #14 etc) and others that are more "bravura" (#4, #7,#9 & #22). And some of your wonderful night shots as well.

Some of them I really should stare at a bit more:
#5 is quite complex
#6 seems to be "held together" by the bow bottom right but I'm not sure how!
#8 is balanced by the gap in the wall on the right but there's no way I would have spotted that scene
So - an instructive series as well!

Fine island indeed. You had great variety of subjects and had enough time to capture light at different time of the day which is why we see fine variety here.
Your compositions, colors and processing are fine.
What this set reveals to me is that you really enjoyed being there.
It is not easy to pick favorite but #18 appeals to me very much.
