Really nice work! I especially like the one atop Notre Dame. The light is so lovely.

First, congrats to Sasha! The work is diverse but cohesive, dramatic but not overdone.

Second, I'd like to make the observation that too many of these "Photographer of the month" articles get about 1% of the engagement as the "Sony / Nikon / Canon / Fuji etc decided to make THIS crazy decision" articles, which I think is a shame. Yes, there are plenty of fluff pieces that get low engagement for good reason, but this shouldn't be one of them. I'll be the first to admit that I've been guilty of glossing over these in the past, but I think this is a good opportunity to step up and do better. Lots of time is spent tearing things down, yet it's crickets when someone is recognized for doing something that we all (or most of us) aspire to.

I think valid criticism is valid, I think most criticism is projection (poorly) disguised as criticism, and I think that recognition (of others) is loathed among the practitioners of the 2nd. And it's got nothing to do with photography, which should be a wake-up call to anyone who actually wants to improve their photography.

So, congrats to Sasha, and I'll get off my soapbox now. ;)

Awesome work! I keep seeing that group dancer shot popping up on Fstoppers and I click on it every time I see it.
