Challenge: Best of 2013 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark III
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Date: Jan 16, 2014
Aperture: 11
ISO: 400
Date Uploaded: Jan 16, 2014

As usual, even though I stock up on photos throughout the year that I would like to use in the Best Of, choosing only one is tough.

I have one from before my 5DIII which I love, but somehow wasn't as loved by others. I would like to see if I can score high in this challenge (I really want a Best Of score above a 6), so I went with one that was very well received elsewhere.

Without being explored at flickr, this has currently 391 views. But out of 391 people, I got 26 favorites and 10 comments. My photos just don't normally attact that kind of a response unless explored, so I must be onto something with this shot, right? :)

I seriously could't be any happier with this score. A 6.5 in a "best of", are you kidding me? I hadn't dreamed I would ever do that well in a yearly best of challenge.

Beautiful scene. Lovely to see such a gentle and luminous sunset. (I bet the temperature was anything but gentle!) 10

Just not sure if you have too much foreground in this image, I'm thinking maybe you do. Love the mood you've created though.
