“Yes” a mural in DUMBO, Brooklyn, an image of the first snow storm in New York City, a small street in Brooklyn on a very snowy first day of spring and a collage of hearts for a new theater poster are the the four runner-ups

Today, we continue sharing the most popular images from our Instagram account. This group is composed of the usual New York City architecture images along with studio projects, street art, Alfalfa designers, our work at MoMA and couple of striking sunsets taken in the Mexican Pacific.

Before we show you the top 7, I want to hand in an interesting fact about caption length. Studies show that it does not significantly affects engagement. Top brands in Instagram tend to keep captions short with an average of 151 characters long, including hashtags. What we learned is that is best to focus on caption content rather than length, and, of course, your images are the root of user interest in this visual network.

Below are the 7 images —out of the last 100— which gather more likes by Alfalfa New York followers. YOU can help us choose the next Top 7 set by following us @alfalfanewyork and liking your favorites.

Without further ado, here are Alfalfa New York’s top seven spots:

7. Designers Valentina Grabner and Lucas Guidetti-Perez were caught jumping of excitement when they spotted our very own Made in NY mark out there in the city.

6. If there ever was something universally beautiful it would be sunsets. This magnificent image was captured in Huatabampito Beach in the Mexican Pacific. This beautiful place is located only 10 minutes from where I grew up.

5. There is something calm and seducing about this image that captured people’s attention. The words of wisdom written in the marquee give us something to reflect upon: “Each One, Teach One.”

4. This black and white composition shows part of the design process at Alfalfa Studio: Moodboards, sketching and staying late at night chasing a winning idea.

3. Another incredible sunset makes it to the Top 7. The burning colors, the glass-like reflection, the energy of the composition and the sculpture-like cloud in the middle are some of the elements that give this picture its power.

2. Going to the Björk show at MoMA and seeing the album covers I designed for the Icelandic musician has been a dream come true. Part of the ‘not-to-be-missed’ exhibition is a screening room where you can watch Björk’s ground breaking music videos in all its glory. I spent hours there and when “Cocoon” played I managed to captured the image below. If you have not seen the exhibition, you must!. It runs through June 7, 2015. It’s completely worth it.

1. The big winner this time has elements of magic. Architecture and sky seamlessly come together to create a hypnotizing optical illusion down in Lower Manhattan’s brand new World Trade Center site.
