  1. I find the winning image less than appealing: nature, but hardly at its most natural or attractive. It looks like a studio setup – again, where’s the link with Spring? I like the composition of the image, though, as it stands, but a winner…..?

  2. like spring is coming in barcelona…has a story to tell

  3. Nice composition, but no indication coming spring. Unless the the author symboloses dark background with winter? Title should have been different

  4. Congratulations Maurizio.

    Unfortunately spring came too late for the red poppy. I agree with Michael and aslam.

    I do not share the opinion of bobnils although I agree the Barcelona picture can tell a story. I miss the indication for spring is coming, besides the fact that it might be taken in winter time and yes spring comes after winter but ….. One flower, bird or any other sign and I would agree 100%.

    “End of winter” is not at all appealing to me …. too dark, meaningless and the “construction” in the upper left corner disrupts the potential symmetry.

    From these 3, I find the poppies the best because of the bright colored poppies which make me at least feel the spring.
