The challenge for December 2017 is different from the November challenge. Obviously.
You need to activate different parts of your brain for the two.
While November was about separation (separating Figure from Ground), December is about unification. How to bring elements together to make an overall strong impression.
Think of it as a piece of music where every tone needs to follow each other to make up a tune. You need to orchestrate all of it. You would want to make you image noiseless and only keep what is positively contributing to your visual ideal.
I found an example late last night. The photograph is from Louvre in Paris. Shot in 2013.
