All your images meet the theme, it’s number 3 I like the best with the striking red building, though not sure if the perspective needs tweaked at the right or the wooden structure leans to the left
Rough - The roll of sandpaper for me I think. The lighting and the simplicity of the shot are perfect.
Smooth has a very pleasing almost low key look. Very nice.
Your set for Alive is great too. I agree with Ian. Such amazing detail especially in the Dunnock and Robin!
Three very different images, all great examples for the theme, I like the sandpaper one the best, it has great lighting
Nice details, I would like the background darker to accentuate the flower
Three great bird images, with spot on focus. I'm always jealous of others who can capture bird images, I always frighten them away before I've had a chance to get anything other than a longer distance shot
