Favorites of the Year

This year I put up a little bit over 100 posts.  There are about 210 pictures posted.  As I stated in my first post, I have put up the good and the bad, talked a bit about how I did certain things, showed experiments, showed successes and failures.  It also turned a bit into me grumping about stuff, and the fun realizations one has when one can't walk.  Hopefully, there will be none of that next year.

One of the first things you should learn to do as a photographer is edit.  No, not mess in Photoshop, but learn to throw out the crap and only show people your best stuff.  This blog wasn't meant for just the stuff that worked, so those of you out looking at this probably see me as a mediocre shooter.  Maybe this post will raise your evaluation of my limited skills?  Or not.

That being said here are some of what I consider my best from the year.  It would be really cool if anyone out there could comment.  Do you agree or disagree?  Did I leave something out that made an impression on you?  Did I place a real clunker in this list?  Don't worry, this is a small list of photos.  I provided links back to the posts these originally appeared.

In no particular order, my favorites (embedded, so this will behave differently than we are used to):

From Lunch is Optional: Change?

From Lunch is Optional: Senior Moment with D

From Lunch is Optional: Visual Building Blocks

From Lunch is Optional: Busy Weekend

From Lunch is Optional: Cassie

From Lunch is Optional: Family Snapshots

From Lunch is Optional: Bit of Playtime

There are some other things I posted recently that could fit. But, I need some time to see if they grow on me, or not.

Any opinions? Anyone?

Anyone notice one of the shots is from my cell phone?

I really like your portraits. The portrait of the woman in the green blouse is very striking! I am not sure what it is, but everything works beautifully in that picture!

Thanks for showing us the images!

I really like the image of the boots. I like the photos of the everyday things. I also agree with Alan W. comment about the woman in the green blouse, nice shot.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you very much. The boots are one of those pictures that almost never happened, I'm glad I took the time to make it. Thanks again!
