    Welcome to this week's competition. A reminder of the rules:

    Each member gets one guess (unless no one is even close towards the end). The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honour of submitting the image for the next challenge. Sometimes there will be more than one thing in the photo or more than one way to accurately describe what the photo represents. The original poster will be the final judge of who is "most correct".

    Here you go...

    I think if one flips the screen 90 degrees to the left it will reveal itself

    Ok, I am calling this one. It is actually the Mary Rose museum in Portsmouth, which houses Henry VIII's flagship. I turned it on it's side to make it a bit harder. I was hoping someone might identify the exact building but perhaps it isn't as widely recognisable as I thought!

    Under the circumstances, the first to correctly identify this as a building is Jose (jssaraiva) so congratulations! It's your go next.

    Here's a wider shot that shows the building more clearly. As an aside I met the American Team Oracle contesting the Admirals' Cup on that very balcony last Summer.

    Thanks and nice "building"! Didn't knew it.

    Let's see what I can come up with for the next challenge.

    I thought it to be a museum from the architecture, but couldn't figure out which one. Museums so rare this time we live in ;)

    Portsmouth I've never visited so out of my luck I am.

    I've travelled to Portsmouth countless times for work in the last 30+ years (a large US computer corporation just off the M27 for those who know the area) but I have never really ventured down to the historic bit. The occasional curry and pint(s) in Southsea is about it. I really should have a look one day before they finally make me redundant.

    From your photo, that looks like a very nicely designed museum building!
