POTW 6-Mar-2017

This is my pick for the silver trophy. The colours are amazing and just scream, "Spain!". The empty Bullring is a metaphor for the dreams and aspirations of the young boy, looking out and perhaps dreaming of his own future.
A rewarding image to gaze upon. Well done Ozi! I was also impressed with Zafra52's image "Il Duomo di Milano". I loved that the castle looked like a paper cutout because of the way it was photographed and it came a worthy second.
