The theme for the official Pentax Forums photo contest for January, 2017 is:

Sunrise/Sunset

This month's theme is Sunrise/Sunset. Show us an image of a sunrise or a sunset. The sun can be in the frame of course, but doesn't have to. The subject can also just be the colorful sky or landscape illuminated by the rising or setting sun. Good luck!

Same here in Newfoundland. Any January sunrise/sunset pics of mine will need to be sent to a subcontest entitled: "50 Shades of Gray"

Don't worry about it, it's the first one that will be accepted if picked at the end of the nominating.

Look at My Threads under My Forum Activity. The rest of us can't see it until next month when we will be asked to nominate finalists.

Composites are fine as long as all of the work is your own.
