      Thank you everyone. That was a tough challenge, and the choice of the awarded becomes more and more difficult, as the shots are better and better… october was a good month, a lot of my pictures for the monthly challenge were taken in Lisbonne, where the is so many nice places to shoot.
      Not sure november will be so successful. The answer is coming soon 😉
