    Another turn of the clock another year passes and what a fantastic year for photography have we had. Already we've seen some outstanding work come out of 2012 and already we are hot on the heels of that with 2013! However this year we are doing something new, a chance to reflect on 2012 and return to a handful of those gems that stood out to elect one that stood out from the whole year.

    This is Photo of the Year for 2012 - and these are the nominations as chosen by you the members each month of that year:

    Toronto Skyline by Bynx

    Robberfly silhouette by pbertner

    Grow up to die by Kulten
    [​IMG]



    Spring in drops by Carlos58
    [​IMG]



    Talent Show by Seefutlung
    [​IMG]



    Osprey Quest by Coastalconn
    [​IMG]



    Matlock Pier by Invisible
    [​IMG]



    Baptizm by Twocolor
    [​IMG]



    Pacu Jawi Bull Racing by ndwgolf
    [​IMG]



    Heavy Industry II by mamiya2000
    [​IMG]


    And now is your chance to cast your vote.




    Note those observant ones of you will notice that we only have 10 entrants, PotM only restarted in February and thus we have no January nomination and we unfortunately lost one nomination from Rizsavi and his photo of a speeding train (sadly he's not been on site since he posted the photo and his hosting site has taken it down).

    My God, I can only pick ONE? I LOVE about 7 of them, maybe 8. How do you choose just 1 of them?!

    Is there a poll where we pick one or do we just announce which one we like.

    Going with Osprey Quest by Coastalconn myself.

    Loved it when I saw it originally. The look on the fish is just awesome. :D

    I believe it's an iron blast furnace somewhere in central Asia.
