/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {

img:nth-child(n3+4) {
<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <img src="thumb-forest.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-trees.jpg" alt="">

Don't get too down on yourself while you're learning Marcin Kurek. Syntax is one of the more challenging things to learn but will become more natural with practice. You're doing great and you're welcome
