  • Drone photography always brings unusual angles but here you have managed a long exposure too over this very busy and colourful market. The flow of movement is interesting and contrasts well with everything that is not moving, creating an intriguing puzzle of shapes and colours. Super shot that needs studying, there is so much to look at, well done you win this round!

  • My name is Azim Khan Ronnie from Bangladesh. I took this photo with DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Honorable judges' comments are right, it's not easy to take this long exposure shot with a drone. Post processing with Adobe Photoshop CC 2019. Thanks a lot honorable judges and I Shot It.

  • Here is a powerful graphic image, a big step away from a traditional city skyline but with all the city feel. Well done, superb composition and eye.

  • My name is Torsten Köster aka TeeKay. I am a street - and urban photographer from Stuttgart in Germany. This picture was taken in my home town and shows a special building facade. The so-called Hortenkachel. This is an architectural sign of a former department store chain which you can find all over Germany. Because this building will soon be demolished, I wanted to show it in this form. It is shot with a Ricoh GRIII and postprocessed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro I am very happy about this Mark of Excellence and thank the judges of "I shot it" very much.

  • Well they can’t both win! Beautiful city night colours and an amazing view down onto these curved fly-overs which divide your photograph into so many shapes. Once again the long exposure really sets off the static forms of the roads. I am guessing this is Dhaka.

  • Thank you very much for giving this photo a mark of excellence. I only picked up landscape photography over the last couple of months. I love the early mornings. This was shot with Nikon D5300, 18-55 kit lens. Opera House, Sydney Australia

  • The pastel colours and layers of buildings make a very nicely constructed image, a tunnel view of the famous Basilique du Sacré Coeur in the wonderful fading daylight. You have here everything to make a winning photo but the framing at the bottom is just not tidy enough for you to scoop the prize. Small details like chopped off sign posts which poke into a lovely photograph can be so distracting from the whole and seem careless. Go take this again, and again if need be !

  • Well this is a sweeping view over Rio de Janeiro from a high vantage point, a great city shot. It is just a shame you didn’t take your sunglasses off.

  • Haha! Thank you for the comments. Next time I'll try an edit that's not quite so in your face...!

  • A city shape and sky, both with reflection. A longer exposure might have brought out more lights but the dark is interesting too.

  • You have caught the nice light, the two ends of the bridge contrasting complimentarily.

  • The Chrysler building is a fabulous subject and landmark, so often photographed, you have snapped it here down a NY street with some soft light.
