  14. Here is my entry for the month. I left at 3:00 AM and drove for over an hour to reach this location. The temperature was -1º F and the wind was blowing about 15mph so it was really cold and my fingers kept going numb when working the camera. The final image is 7 vertical images that are stitched together to create a pano. 20mm f/1.8 lens at f/2.2, 13 sec, ISO 4000.

    Anyway, #3 gets it for me this month, Very Nice!
     
  16. I vote for #6--Ninja. Great composition, soft colors, creates a good mood.
