Don't sweat the date, John, thanks for regularly updating these in your free time. Just reach out if you need some help, I'm sure plenty of us would happily pinch hit as needed.

And congrats to the winners. I really do love that pic of Mike's.

January saw some REALLY thick fog for this area, and I make a small "liminal space" series from that night. This one was my favorite.

nah that doesn't work either, lost interest in soccer a long time ago, followed rugby until my local pro team went bust, follow Tampa Bay Bucs a bit (and not just since Brady) but 5+hrs time diff makes it a pretty nocturnal activity, anyway back to photos

Congrats to the winners, all great shots!

My votes for last month:
1st (3p): ruthenium, I love the dramatic sky
2nd (2p): RoamingScott
3rd (1p): tsdevine

Managed to kick covid, but the weather last month was mostly uncooperative. Still managed to get out for a good hike though. Got pics of a couple lakes, but since my last one I posted was Dream Lake, I'll do a different one. The slightly scuzzy feel is due to the ice that kept forming on the lens whenever I faced the camera into the wind for more than a few seconds.







Camera body: Olympus EM1 Mk2 in hi-res mode
Lens: 7-14 Pro
Aperture: f8 for the sunburst
Filters: None
Short note on PP: Basic processing done in DxO Photolab 7.

Super strong entries last month, IMO - well done everyone.







------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: Nikon Zf
Lens: Nikon Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S
Aperture: f/8
Filters: None
Short note on PP: Color and contrast tweaks and some perspective correction
Top vote (3p) + reason: pbraymond - wonderfully composed with gorgeous tones - one that really invites the viewer to contemplate the image construct a story.
Runner-up vote (2p): bmike-vt - another great storytelling shot with a strong central focus that slows down the busyness elsewhere.
Last vote (1p): ruthenium - beautiful capture of a great moment. Really well done.

Only got out a few days in January, but it's been a while since we had snow that was anything but fleeting.







------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camera body: Sony a7R V
Lens: Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art
Aperture: f/11
Filters: N/A
Short note on PP: Processed in Lightroom, straightened a little, color and exposure adjustsments. Sharpened with Topaz Sharpen AI
Top vote (3p) + reason: bmike-vt - Great moment in time shot. Love the B&W processing, reflection of light on the wet street, and the razzle dazzle of the specular highlights.
Runner-up vote (2p): ruthenium - Also a great timing shot. Love the color juxtaposition of the storm with the warm calm pool in the foreground.
Last vote (1p): pbraymond - Like the B&W, nice composition and the interesting background melting away.

Short note on PP: b&w conversion, cropping, slight tone afjustments
Top vote (3p) + reason: Jman13 - Distracting elements poking in from the edge, horizon not level, bottom right corner makes my eye want to continue going out of the picture. Just terrible good. At least the tones saved the picture.

Just in case it does not translate well to others (seems to happen more now on FM than ever before), forgot the smiley face in my response

Love the shot!

Thanks for the votes everyone! Always a pleasure to visit these threads and see the work everyone posts.

I made 1 photo in January - ended up visiting a family member who entered hospice care and then I came down with Covid.
