You may think this photo looks familiar – and so you should, as it also made the top 10 in our ‘monochrome’-themed contest back in July, coming in fourth that time. But a good photo is a good photo whichever way you look at it. The stark shape of the crossroads draws your eye to the corners of the image, and the compact square of the house and trees around it provides an additional geometric element. The resulting image works just as well on a ‘winter landscape’ theme as it did on the ‘monochrome’ theme.
