ahmed_saeed Congratulations
@x__holly__x , your photo is the winner of the @refla5h challenge "Straight on facade"

There were so many beautiful submissions. I usually go for very minimal straight forward facades, but the surreal chaos in yours just worked so well for me. It was an instant favourite. I keep looking at it and each time I see some new detail. Congrats! And keep on taking great pictures. :) Thanks to everyone who participated in the #refla5h0230straightonfacades challenge.

Thank you Bert for all the hard work you put into it :)

ahmed_saeed Congratulations all! Fantastic images for the 'Straight On Façades' theme!
.
It was really hard to choose from between all those great photos, I tend to like minimal straight on photos, or quite the opposite chaotic surreal compositions!
So I managed to find a few of each in my favourite nine photos.

ahmed_saeed I'm glad to be running the @refla5h this round since my photo was chosen as winner of the last round "structure meets nature"
Rules are I pick the new theme and the winner in the next 24 hours!

Since I've been having an obsession with Facades lately, this round's theme will be .
'Straight On Facades'
.
Find your own images or create new ones that celebrate facades captured straight on (with the view line effectively perpendicular to the façade itself) and tag those images with
.
#refla5h0230straightonfacades
.
(Click on the above tag to see what's there and to prime your tag cache to avoid typos when tagging.)
.
Tag to submit, for judging, no more than 3 of your own photos, new or old, in 24 hours. More than that can be submitted but only the earliest three can be included in the judging.
.
Remember, the winner picks the theme AND winner of the next challenge.
.
Have fun!

ahmed_saeed "Why Iran? What are you going to do over there?"
The questions I got asked the most whenever someone found out I will go there.
I had the chance to share my thoughts with Michael @barbatulus, about our trip to this beautiful and totally misunderstood country.
If you have time check it out, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
