On Illumination in the Coniferous Forests challenge (1 comment in total)

Although not overly dramatic, I really like the lighting here. It gives me a strong feeling of actually being there too.

This is one of my favourites from this challenge.

On red square in the Civic Christmas challenge (4 comments in total)

The Christmas and New Year traditions are inseparable. Pagan symbols associated with the traditional mid-winter festival are now entangled into the Christian tradition.

Indeed. Subjects such as the Eiffel Tower, Monument Valley, Stonehenge and so on get photographed all the time. I've mentioned subjects with recognisable names, but I'm sure there are other scenes whose name and location are less familiar, but are similarly much-photographed.

I too recognised this scene when I first saw it , but did not consider it as being in any way controversial. In fact in this particular challenge I welcomed its presence, and its omission would have represented a loss. In my opinion the photo might be considered a tribute to the architect and builders of the cathedral.

It's possible for two different people to independently come up with the same idea.

If the word "boring" is appropriate, it may apply to the voters rather than the image.
