    Post your 1 Best Photo from June 2019.

    What this is, is a Thread for each of us to post our 1 BEST photo from the photos we had posted here at FocalWorld the previous Month. It's never easy to pick just 1, but it's a great exercise.

    In this case from June. It doesn't have to have been taken in June, it simply needs to have been Posted here at FocalWorld some time in June.

    (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 will start with this one from Skyline Overlook. It wasn't an easy choice, it never is but I think I will go with this one. Even with this one, I had a hard time picking between the full shot or the crop. I went with the full image.

    Thanks for posting this Jim, and I agree, this is your best from June. As you may guess, mine is from Skyline as well.

    That might end up being be your best shot of the year IMHO Jim! Nice work everyone. Funny that you overlooked that wonderful shot on first run through Alan.

    I certainly don't rate this my best artistic shot of the month, but technically, and fun taking it it ranks #1. Screen shot from 4K video taken with my DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone while I skied The Choke Couloir on Mt. Pilchuck solo.

    This looks great Joe! It's a fun exercise I think as we might balance between our best and our favorite to see which we pick. Sometimes they are the same, and sometimes those are 2 different photos for us. I do like this one.
