Thanks everyone!
Man, this current competition is so good - the quality of submissions last month was incredible.







------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: Nikon Z8
Lens: Voigtlander 35mm f/2 APO-Lanthar
Aperture: f/11 (most of the shot), f/16 (water)
Filters: None
Short note on PP: Color and contrast tweaks - blend of two exposures..f/11 for the buildings for better sharpness and sunstars on the lights, and f/16 for the longer exposure on the water to smooth it out more
Top vote (3p) + reason: RoamingScott - Phenomenal light and mood, just really catches my attention and draws me in
Runner-up vote (2p): bmike-vt - love this shot, with good composition and wonderful B&W conversion
Last vote (1p): johnahill - love the foreground and the subtle color throughout

Happy with that, congrats to the other winners!

My votes for last month:
1st (3p): retrofocus, I like the visual flow of it. There's a lot going on but none of it feels like too much.
2nd (2p): ruthenium
3rd (1p): Jman13

Here's mine for Nov, this very spot as seen on S1E01 of Westworld, where the Man in Black scalps a guy on that rock ledge in the left of the shot. (When I saw that episode, I pointed at the screen and yelled I'VE BEEN THERE.)







Camera body: Olympus EM1 Mk2 in hi-res mode
Lens: 12-40 Pro
Aperture: f22 for the sunburst
Filters: None
Short note on PP: Basic processing done in DxO Photolab 7.

Lovely images as always!

1st choice: AdaptedLenses - love this image, the geometry contrasting against the water, and I like the processing.
2nd choice: tsdevine
3rd choice: Jman13

November was another hard to choose from month... I took a few images I really liked.
