Not too many entries and not even all "for competition", but still some very nice ones.

@JAG, I especially like the line and shadow play of Castillo de San Cristobal in Puerto Ricobut the textures of the colosseum come out nice as well
@Cavalier, not so blatantly obvious for me in Europe, the first has fantastic colours and is not a cliché view you often see. Also the waves in the second are impressive allthough I have the feeling the image is tilted clockwise
@grandmaR, nice examples, especially the third "Then and Now" diptich is special and other than the maintenance truck there's many more differences to explore.
@DavidRGillespie, glad you came back David, I've never seen cedar arches like that so thanks for sharing, also the Spring Island rock arch is a nice photo with interesting textures and lines in the foreground
@sarasphotos, fantastic golden arches in the Albi Cathedral! And I think I've driven through that Arch in the Gorges du Tarn many years ago, but didn't take a photo.
@sapphire73, Like with Joyce's photo I find the light/shadow play in the first very appealing. And I can feel the nice and quiet summer on the French Riviera in your second one

And now for the winners (where I unfortunately had to pass on the last two entrants):

HM goes to @DavidRGillespie for Cedar arches at Alhambra, Grenada, Spain
3rd place goes to @JAG for Castillo de San Cristobal in Puerto Rico
2nd place goes to @grandmaR for Arc de Triumph de Carousel in Paris - 1964 on the right - 2019 on the left

And first pace is for @Cavalier for Arches in the obvious - Arches National Park

Gorgeous colours and nice composition, not obvious at all in my mind. I only think you need to clean up two dust spots from your sensor (both close to your signature)

So congrats and looking forward what you can bring us next.
