image captionAlex Gounaropoulos: "A woman making the most of her window-seat on a flight to Athens. I guess the perfect triangle of light in the dimly lit cabin caught my eye more than the scenery down below."

image captionLeon Herbert: "In the basement of a local art shop in Leicester. Love the light poking in through the moss-covered waffled windows."

image captionHelen Yorke: "I took this in Portmeirion, [Gwynedd,] during my holiday in September this year. The weather was uncharacteristically hot and bright for the time of year, making the colours just pop out at the lens."

image captionVeena Sasidharan: "Friends in reminiscence - taken in an old warehouse near the harbour at Fort Cochin[, Kerala, India]."

image captionJoel Puls: "Nestled inconspicuously among the buildings of the Avenue Ledru-Rollin, just a short walk from the Gare de Lyon train station [in Paris], the church provided me some much-needed shade from the blazing midday Sun and a bit of peace and quiet from the incessant hustle and bustle of the city."

image captionMh Zhou: "A winter evening, I passed by Vaclavske Square (Wenceslas Square), Prague. I noticed that the windows of a boutique were very striking. Many black silhouettes of figures and brand names were decorated in the windows of each floor of the building. The figures and the profiles of windows against warm lights made an eye-catching silhouette picture."

image captionDavid Hawson: "Reflection in a window in Delft[, the Netherlands]. I liked the juxtaposition of the solidity of a rectangular brick wall and the distorted, almost fluid, reflections in the square glass panes."

image captionWhile climbing up the stairs inside the fortified walls of Dubrovnik, Croatia, Jon Neville-Jones spotted this view of the old city, through a turret window.
