Been awhile since I posted in these threads.

1st choice: AdaptedLenses - love the motion and processing in this image
2nd choice: johnahill - honestly was hard to choose between this and AdaptedLenses image.
3rd choice: Ullf

October was a hard to choose from month... I took a few images I really liked. Edited this post because I changed my mind.

Tamron 20-40 @ 24mm

Happy with that result!

My votes for last month:
1st (3p): Jman13, great vivid colors, captured the feel of the place very well.
2nd (2p): pbraymond
3rd (1p): retrofocus



Had a lot to choose from for last month thanks to a very productive trip to southern Utah, but I'm gonna go with this one:







Camera body: Olympus EM1 Mk2 in hi-res mode
Lens: 7-14 Pro
Aperture: f22 for the sunburst
Filters: None
Short note on PP: Basic processing done in DxO Photolab 6. (Waiting on the usual Thanksgiving sale to upgrade to v7.)

I had a hard time choosing an image this month...I took a lot that I like, but not sure which to submit.







May I also say that last month's submissions are very strong across the board. So many good photos.

Ha, good catch. That light was a bit more dramatic that day. Reminds me I need to do some more long exposures as well…
