Great selection David - some top notch shots in there! June, October, November & December stand out for me - some great compositions ranging from classic to almost abstract, great vision

Great set. Great eye for an image David

I barely shot enough to make a best of 6 months. This months resolution is to make a best of 2020

Thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.
Barrie: Eclectic? For a moment I thought you meant they were shocking.

Brilliant images, thank you for sharing. I'd love to know the acquisition and PP details behind 'October', the image is so beautifully vibrant and alive

Edit: I looked up the image in your gallery - any PP details would be appreciated!

Very little PP needed. the light was brilliant all I had to do in PP was convert the RAW file to JPEG and make subtle alterations in levels and contrast. I can't recall exactly but I probably also pulled the exposure back in the sky a little to bring out cloud detail. This is what I normally do, I don't like heavy handed processing with over saturated unnatural colours and too much contrast.

That’s a really nice set of images, the first one caught my eye with those blue buildings lifting an otherwise monotone scene, and October for the perfectly placed deer and everything looking crisp.

Agree with the comments as above, March and June stand out for me,

March for the timing as well as the lines and shadow

June again for the timing plus the colours and the lead in lines of the balustrade

Lovely set David, March and December are my favourites and of course Octobers shot is a beauty but, enjoyed them all.
Now have a look through my catalogue.

Thanks HarrisF1,Chris, Robert and Nigel.
Nigel, I have had a look at your portfolio, there's some marvellous images that stand out in my memory from earlier viewing, and great variety. I particularly like your night time shot of the church and, my first viewing of it this morning, Ely Cathedral.

Great set and a nice mixture of subjects. October's stands out for me.

Many of my favourite images from 2019 cannot be posted here as they were taken using my pencil case (as a friend insists on calling my pinhole camera). It would be nice to see others' picks though.

Great set David... super compositions... love the timing of March, and the structures of December... and August is very unusual and striking indeed...

Best
