Best Photo of the Decade!

To celebrate the end of a decade, I thought why not put together a quick contest in which you can showcase your best shot taken between 2010 and 2019.

The prize will be your choice of a PF T-shirt, or unlimited photo attachments on the forum for a year. Can't wait to see the pics!

I don't know about " best," but this one was fun to make.

Tall order! Most of us will have trouble picking or own best image let alone the best of all of us...

I like this one - inspired by Fan Ho. I set the exposure to sunny f/11 and it just happened.

Not sure about best, but this is my longest shot.... a long exposure of 28+ years.... somewhat over exposed at times.....and not allways in focus.....

Thats me.... going bush (or walkabout), having turned my back on corporate life (now dead to me) and moved to the country.



FWIW..... this is to be my funeral photo.... so will be my last exposure.

This is probably the shot I like most ... because every time I look at it I can hear the great guitar played by Martin Barre ...

Two questions:

1) when does this end?
2) is this limited to Pentax / Ricoh gear?

Let's go with the end of January or when we have 100 submissions, whichever comes first.

Also I think it would be most fair to allow any type of camera.
