This little hostel / restaurant (Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli) is world famous, and on most lists of "must-see" places in Switzerland. Most photos of this little wooden building built into the cliff face are colourful postcard photos. So I decided to go for the black and white version with more focus on the textures and scale of the scene.

Nadia. The black and white is lovely.

Stunning, stunning Nadia. I love the textures and the diagonal lines of the stairs and footpath leading your eye to the little gem. The clouds ad another texture but also another diagonal leading to the focal point. As my skip kom gaan ek soontoe. Please repost after applying Danie's advice.

Great, thanks for the advice Danie, will definitely do that!

Another stunning image which shows you have developed a very good eye for compositional aspects like balance and line... I am featuring your shot, but would like to propose that you selectively soften the textures of the cliff face and then leave the building with more texture. As it is, I find the heavy textures a bit overwhelming and struggling to pick up the building which is the focal point.
