    please show us your top 5 photo's you have taken during January 2015.
    Here are my 5 to get the ball rolling.
    Most were taken with the Panasonic GX7 and PL25mm lens as I took up a challenge to take a photograph everyday during January 2015. The last one was with the Panasonic GX7 & P100-300 lens.

    You'll get no sympathy from me - Vancouver is 4-8 degrees above freezing, heavily overcast and frequent drizzle at this time of year. 50km away, they get periodic snow. Blech.

    Not my best picture from the Outback Bowl, but my favorite because this one turned into a touchdown.

    I just realized none of my favorite photos from January were taken with my favorite lens. Three were with the P100-300, which isn't really surprising since I just bought it and I tend to really use any new lens a lot when I first get it. One was taken with the P14, and one was taken with the O45. None were taken with the PL25, which really is my favorite lens, in spite of the evidence from this past month.

    a macro shot done with G6+40-150 2.8 i40 flash and 10mm extension tube

    Shot my niece on a toy skateboard (I don't know if that thing has a proper name in English) while she was moving forward. PL25 1.4 isn't the fastest focusing lens and this shot even wasn't focused on her face, but I'm glad about what it turned out to be. G6+PL25 1.4 LED video light

    This one is always overlooked while I actually shot three photos on his birthday, 9th Jan. Without the birthday crown or cake and all that, Nino was just posing right for that moment. I placed the i40 flash to the right and had it triggered from my G6 onboard flash, very convenient dials when you need to choose the output compensation on the i40, that said, I still miss that output power from my broken Metz 44. Shot with G6+40-150 2.8.

    This shows what can be done with the completely silent electronic shutter on the G6, combined with the its high ISO capability and the help of an amazing PL25 (some NR with LR too :p) by a patient dog lover. 1/5s SS, no IBIS obviously.

    Done with the G6 and 40-150 2.8, I actually, actually paid that much price to upgrade from G5 and other "slow" lenses to this combo with the primary intention that I'll be able to shoot my dog run with excellent AF results, and I'm more than satisfied. This is someone else's dog, the lease around his neck my first thought for that was, I didn't like it; but the black leash does helped outlining the movement somehow in my opinion. The G6+40-150 2.8 combo focused admirably well even on the white dog in front of snow background.

    That was my humble "best 5". I really did encourage myself to go out and shoot in the cold winter (well a couple of indoors really), thanks for reading.

    January was one of those months where I wish we could do a top 10, it’s summer here in Australia and everyone’s out and about, so it’s been principally “people” shots for me. These 5 are pretty much randomly selected. Shot with E-P5/12/17/25/45.

    First time for me that 1) shots taken with the 75 have not made it into this top 5 thread and 2) I took a picture at 1/8000 at widest f1.4 aperture, the first picture in this sequence (hey, it was exciting for me anyway).
