    Post your 1 Best Photo from December 2018.

    What this is, is a Thread for each of us to post our BEST photo from the photos we had posted here at FocalWorld the previous Month.

    In this case from December. It doesn't have to have been taken in December, it simply needs to have been Posted at FocalWorld some time in December. (If you have a hard time remembering what you posted here last month, just click on your Profile Page and click on Postings to see a list. At the Bottom of it you can click on Show all Threads)

    And most importantly, it can be from any of the Forums! While we are heavy with our Landscape postings, this thread will be for all of the forums. So if your Best photo was a City photo, post it here. If it was a People photo, post it here. The idea is to be able to all come together and share our Best photo, and perhaps open some peoples eyes to other types of photography as they look through the postings.

    This might take some thinking from everyone, it might take some tough choices to just pick one. Remember there is no right or wrong choice, just pick the one that spoke the most to you.

    Have fun! :)

    Jim

    I shot a lot with my early Christmas present of the Tamron 150-600mm G2. I have it boiled down to 2 photos that I think are my best... I keep going back and forth and may just have to flip a coin in the end. :rolleyes:

    Okay.... so this one I think I liked way better then everyone else, but I titled it Armageddon. I think the elements in the photo have a lot of things they are saying. Anyway, here it is from Bolsa Chica in Socal.

    Hmm, I think I only took one non snap shot trip in December, and this is the best from that day.

    Hey Ben, as a note. The photo doesn't have to be taken in December (or whatever month) it has to have been posted in the Forums in December. So your photo could have been taken 10 years ago. It's just the Best of what you Posted in December. And of course this one qualifies, I just didn't want you to think it had to have been taken in December.

    Going with this one from Petra - it was the shot I'd visualized before going. I've modified it a little since the original post, taking advantage of some feedback.
