Having my Bond marathon, I saw a lot of great shots in every 007 films.

Making this a fun game, I'm interested in what would be your picks for some of the best shots in the Bond franchise, from Dr. No to No Time To Die.

Every member will submit their favorite shots from each Bond film, through a screenshot or just capturing any Bond scene that had the most beautiful shot if your watching on your TVs. 😁

Submit your favorite shots for the film, three pictures per member....

Each submission had a deadline
(3 days) after that, we're going to vote for the best picture, the shot that got many votes will win as the best shot of that film.....

    Mostly iconic shots here, but I really like the one of the ominous dragon tank returning to the bauxite mine with its prisoners.

    My favorite shots:

    - Bond and Honey in Dr. No's lair (especially with the 'aquarium' in the background)
    - Dr. No's control room
    - Bond, Honey and Quarrel wading through the mangrove river

    These are the ones that spring to mind. The atmosphere in these two shots is phenomenal.

    Great stuff, my vote would go to that first one.

    Also loved that shot of the dragon tank returning to the bauxite mine.

    Any news on this?
    It started off quite promising, but seems to have stalled.

    Oh, yes.....Irma Bunt shot this game, but thankfully a Police Officer on a motorcycle (you) arrived and it's now recovered in a hospital.....

    Anyway, I'm going to change the mechanics of this game, each submission had a deadline
    (3 days) after that, we're going to vote for the best picture, the shot that got many votes will win as the best shot of that film.....

    How many votes are allowed per member? And does it make sense to differ between shots of the almost same moment in the film? For example, I love the tarantula room and we have three shots from there. One with the whole room and two almost identical with a closeup of Dent and the cage.

    Just one, you're just going to pick your favorite shot, of course you can only pick one or vote for one shot.....

    About the shots of the same moment, you're just going to pick between the two of which do you think had a better shot: The one with the whole room or the one with a close-up of Dent and the cage?

    It depends on you on which one do you like more. ☺

    To vote, just type the number of the picture, (for example my favorite of those shots is #14).

    I'm going to pick first, my favorite of those shots was #4, I just liked how that shot tells you what Bond is: mystery, danger and sexiness, it's all in that picture.

    The way Connery knelt while Sylvia Trench was having a golf inside his flat, it speaks sexiness and danger, it's beautifully shot!

    #4 is my vote for the best shot.....

    13 for me too. Some of them (like 9 and 10) aren't really shots from the film though...

    Actually, now that this has been mentioned, could we put it in the OP that it's recommended to use a movie stills site to source your nominations rather than just using Google images (if possible)?

    There are a couple of pretty good ones out there who screen capture shots from Blu-Ray sources. www.filmgrab.com is one, www.movie-screencaps.com is another.

    The best one for Bond, I feel, is https://screenmusings.org/movie/

    Just scroll down until you find the film you like.

    13 is great, I wanna say that, but I'll go with 5 as it shows more Bond tropes: the smoke, the playing cards - it really mirrors that first scene of Bond at Le Cercle, where someone's "out to get" him.

    Good idea, though it's also interesting to see the evolution of Bond through those shots.

    #13 is still the majority and counting.....I'm going to announce the winner later so we can move on to another Bond film.
