I'm fascinated by the choices so far. When it comes to shots, is it iconography that people look for (i.e. Bond does something cool in this shot) or is it a the craft (movement, lighting, colours etc.) that make it stand out for you?
We're especially spoiled with YOLT as Freddie Young was such a great DOP.
As with FRWL, there's a shot I wanted to include but couldn't find a good screengrab of - the silhouettes of the SPECTRE helicopters on the mountainside as they appear in pursuit of Bond while he's flying Little Nellie.
You mean this one?
No, not that one! Bond looks down at the mountainside and we see the shadow of Little Nellie against the rock. Seconds later, the shadow of the SPECTRE helicopters appear. It proceeds the shot you posted by a couple of seconds. I always thought it was a very effective way of introducing the enemy.
Let me introduce myself......
That is an interesting observation and one I also considered. While I absolutely 100% understand the choice for iconic shots, personally I am more drawn to shot compositions, colour patterns and atmosphere.
I know which shot you’re looking for, it’s the one with the three helicopter shades against the mountain side… That IS a great shot, I agree :)
Same here. If they overlap, then even better. It's partly why I was so happy that the submission for Dr. No I made was the eventual winner. Same iconic moment, but the difference in atmosphere between frames a mere few seconds apart is incredible.
One of the things about YOLT, is that much of the film's specific iconography is what comes to mind for people - who may not be Bond fans - when they think of a "James Bond" film (i.e., "Isn't that the one where that guy that loves gold feeds his foes to the killer sharks"). Think AUSTIN POWERS.......
And since we have one of Kissy, let's not forget Aki :x
or her Toyota 2000gt
Most of the best ones have been mentioned, I think, but here are a few more:

For this one, just read the book... ;)
The price of failure (Osato)
In fairness, they were all pretty great shots. I’ll have to review this adaption with a more open mind pretty soon.
In a movie like this it’s hard to pick three isn’t it? Maybe only on the last day for submitting it would be cool to let the door open for let’s say another three shots per member.
