Post Processing Challenge November

A photographer friend of mine and I came up with an idea for a friendly competition. Each month for a year, we will process the same picture and ask for you to vote for a winner. After each month, the previous month’s winning picture will be announced. The photographer who processed the winning picture(s) will not be revealed until after all winning pictures have been announced. (12 months)
