Default Your favorite photo of 2017?

What is the favorite photo you took in 2017?
I took two that day with the M3 about an hour apart that I coin toss over. If I were to pick it would the pano because the wide field of view. I do like the vineyard worker in the rain.
(I remember that trip well because the day prior the 24-70 went down so no 5D shots for the trip. )

I have 2 favourites. The first one is Mt. Teide, the volcano which formed the Canary Island of Tenerife. The second is a rocky southern English coast, near Weymouth.
Both taken with a Pentax K5.



I like this one, even if the sky is "blown out" (over exposed)

This years supermoon setting late morning in monument Colorado.
A flicker sitting atop a 20 foot pine from about fifty yards away.
Sun rise just the other day. Love the array of color, and how the ponies look like they are a flame.
Plus the fact that all of these were taken from my house, adds to the appeal for me.

8. Grand Palace, Bangkok


Certainly among my favorite shots for 2017. Cropped for full screen viewing on my TV.

I've been real busy w my new camera (Sony a6500) having a lot of fun, taking a ton of pics, here's a recent one. I think it shows some of the fun I've been having.

Oh my, the "real" photograph would have been awesome too. Did your camera capture the actual shot as well as the modified version? If so, can you post it?

Nice, sharp image, Allen K, of New York. No smog that day either!
Obviously you were using a very wide angle lens, as I see the distortion of the vertical lines towards the edges of your frame.
But somehow, it all works and makes a great image. I love it.
