Facebook Pixel dPS Roundup: The Best Photos of November

dPS Roundup: The Best Photos of November

We’re back with our second in the series of monthly roundups! November was a fun month, with Wheels, Down, Coffee, and Dark & Moody as our weekly challenges.

Join the challenges here!

For our Wheels challenge, I was really drawn to the unique red light in this photograph from Ira Papamalama:

The reflections in the photograph of the car wheels from Ivan Galic were quite good, too. (Plus, there’s a Porsche, and…well…it’s a Porsche!)

Moving swiftly on to our theme, Down, we had a handful of drone photographs along with some other great images; it was really fun to go through the photos posted in the Facebook group and on the blog and see how everyone interpreted the theme!

This image grabbed me – there’s so much going on:

And our second choice in the Down challenge came from a regular challenge participant, Chinmoy Biswas. The shadow and action in the photograph is really great!

The next challenge was dear to my heart…well…to my whole body? Coffee!

This first photograph from Jin Mamlouk is great! Beans, steam, and a unique mug – winning! Thanks, Jin.

And in the photograph below by Amal, it’s the light and shadow that really sets the shot apart! The layering (as my good friend Deanne Fitzmaurice always tells me) with the coffee, the light, and the newspaper, is all great. Well done, Amal.

Another regular to our weekly challenge, Moncat, dropped a lovely photograph into the Dark & Moody challenge this month! I imagined rowing into the fog on an eerie morning – but maybe that’s just me. Great photo!

And rounding out our best weekly challenge photos of November is this photograph from matt93, another cracking photograph with all the makings of a dark and moody scene. Thanks, Matt!

Our weekly challenge isn’t about the best photographers showcasing their work.
