A wonderful set of winner and HMs.
That winning image really sums up 2020 to a "T".
Congratulations all.

Congrats Brian, great shot and perfect in line with past years' world events! Also congrats to maricontis for the HM, a spectacular capture.

I'm honoured to also get a HM, kind of shows equipment is not as important as we sometimes think since this shot was taken with a lowly and decentered MG Domiplan 50/2.8 with the aperture stuck wide open
You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

Congratulations, Brian, for that great photo summarizing the last year!
Congratulations to maricontis and to Pieter as well. These are three outstanding photographs!

Oh my gosh this totally makes my week! I'm very honored to be in such esteemed company as the photographers on this forum. It's been a terrible year for many people but I'm very pleased to have been able to document just a tiny bit of it.

The HMs are lovely. Stefano's is an absolutely amazing capture and which through sheer symbolic power very adequately sums up some of what we're experiencing this year and Pieter's is just a lovely photo, which seems to me all the more important - to never forget the beauty that's all around us!
I detest bugs, especially spiders.
