This year I wanted to participate merely in the Free Study Challenges. After 11 months I was on a nice 7th place in the overall DPC Free Study Ranking and I was hoping to finish within the top ten.
Unfortunately December didn't bring good weather. There was one beautiful day in the first week, but due to work I wasn't able to go out and shoot in daylight (between 9.30am and 4pm). And the rest was total crap. This was one of the better days with at least some sunshine. Again I wasn't able to go out and shoot because I was in bed with a chest infection. So I took this one through the bedroom window. In PP I added the cracks as part of a texture.

It turned out to be the last day with some sunshine. The rest of the month we were battered with gale winds (up to 80 miles an hour) and heavy rain.
