What a lovely set of photos this month. There were seven I wanted to vote for and more that were excellent. My apologies to Bobu, twoeye, Frogfish, and Luvwine which all deserved a vote, but I ran out of votes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: Leica M10
Lens: Leica M 50 f/2 APO
Aperture: f/2
Filters: none
Short note on PP: brought up the shadows created by the back lighting.
Top vote (3p) + reason: Mathieu18 - love this shot and the beautiful story it tells
Runner-up vote (2p): Phillip Reeve - stunningly beautiful, absolutely outstanding; hard to leave this as a runner-up
Last vote (1p): Retrofocus - I love the feel and emotion of this shot; fantastic
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now my meager entry, mostly to vote for such a great group of shot. This is just a shot of my son that I like very much.

Body: Sony A7rii
Lens: Zeiss Loxia 85
Filters, polarizing filter and I think 3 stop ND filter (Breakthrough Photography both) Also used SR app.
Post processing was just Lightroom adjusting exposure, WB, and some luminance sliders and other usual adjustments/sharpening.

Votes: 1st: Matthieu18 for a fine capture of a precious moment, 2d Philip Reeve for a shot that would seem to be simple to get, but really well executed, and 3rd place to retrofocus for an interesting black and white.
