The photo contest topic for the month of December 2018 is "DECEMBER." Yeah, not exactly the most creative idea I know, but I wanted to make it somewhat easy to try to maintain good participation like we had last month. I was originally going to use "Christmas" as the topic, as that is a natural choice for this month. However, we already used that one last December. "December," though uber generic, provides much more leeway in potential subjects. Anything that is in any way associated with the month of December, whether holiday related or not, qualifies as a valid subject.

Now get to work folks!

Vinn, the OT forum is configured so that new members must first log 50 posts before their post editing and photo uploading functions are activated. Meanwhile, if you wish to post a photo, I will be happy to post it for you. Send me a PM and I'll give you an email address you can send it to.

Don't wait, there are plenty of places where you can post your post count and before you know it, you'll have an adequate amount to do so. 

I'd love to see your entry.

A single letter can count. There is a speed regulator so if you get locked out wait and try again.

Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Today was one of the rare December days where it is warm and no wind.
A day where reflections appear more clear than the original image.

Above photo is my photo contest entry, but I started to use this one instead:



Just thought the other one with the reindeer lights fit the holiday theme better.

WOW! Dude, that's very creative. I just set a timer and ran back to the family. 

Tech question. What was your ISO?

Both were at ISO 1600 @ f/2 with the fastest shutter I could get away with while my daughter held the crystal ball, to keep the ball reasonably sharp in low light. F/2 to get nice background bluritude.
