Here's one of my favorites from the year. Nothing spectacular, taken the first month I had my 10D. It's a view of Mt. Hood and Trillium Lake near Government Camp, OR from earlier this fall.

My vote is for Bob Kulon's "Vanishing Point".

Probably not worthy, but it's part of my personal development in subject and technique in the post processing. Have actually sold a triptych of these . . . ???

This is not a landscape, nor is the subject a relative, but I think this shot is overall one of my best for 2004:



The expression on her face is what does it for me. It's sort of enigmatic, and takes the image beyond just another cute kid photo.

I took this in august when I was on a hiking trip in the Rocky Mountains with my scout group. The picture is of someone I met at the camp. I do not have any image editing tool so this isnt finished, tho it has too many faults that can't be corrected. It was taken with my Canon A80 atop Mt Eiffle, which is 3500m tall and overlooks lake moraine. All my pictures of the lake are ruined because it started to rain and water got on my lens and I didn't notice it at the time, which is a shame, because it looked much better then this, except for the water spots.

As you can see i have a lot to learn when it comes to photography, the only excuse that I will give for my shooting problems on the trip (i'll show you some other pictures later) was that I was constantly in a hurry. Funny that I have to wait for my slow group to catch up on the trails, but they can't wait 2 minutes for me to take a photo.

For some reason it is not letting me post the picture, it is telling me: You are not allowed to use that image extension on this board. A valid format is: http://www.domain.com/picture.gif, an invalid format is: http://www.domain.com/picture.one.gif

Well, I just couldn't pick one.  I have three I keep vacillating between, so I'll just have to inflict all of them on you.

Lisa, your first Alps picture makes me really champ at the bit to get out and try my high altitude Sierra winter backpacking thing.  That's a wonderful pristine impossibly "pure" scene and the snow and clouds really work together.  I'm getting very close to done with my big home-made camper project, so soon I'll be out to test if I can really handle snow camping and and high altitude snow backpacking.  At times it seems a little crazy, but, well, crazy is what I do.  
Drew, the instant I saw just the top part of your picture I had a stab of India homesickness.  I don't know how I'll manage so many loves in my life!!

This is one of my favorite photos from 2004, mainly because of the rare chance (for me) of partaking in an aerial shoot.

Pom - simply beautiful images. I really like the subtle colour and almost 'oriental' composition. Nice.

I thought this day was going to be a wash out. It was raining, getting dark fast and my six year old was son had had enough.

My favourite picture is usually the last one that I have spent time working on. 2004 has not been a bad year photographically for me, but having just returned from India, I thought I would share this one with you. A visit to the Taj Mahal was included in the trip and I was expecting this to be a visit to a tourist trap and photographically, you can hardly say that it has not been snapped before. However, this was one of those occasions when reality definitely exceeded expectations. Highly recommended and should probably be added to one of those lists of things you should do before you die.
This was an underexposed grab shot from the deck of a boat that I was kneeling on to cross the Yamuna river to get a different angle on the Taj. I had seen lots of different birds crossing, but this flight just happened to appear and this is probably the best timed. No photoshop trickery here, apart from straightening out the verticals. There is not much you can do with tone and colour on this without bands appearing in the sky. 1DS and 24-70 lens at about 35mm.

Hey! There are some really great photos here ranging from the deeply personal to the specatular chocolate box. I would have been proud to have taken any one of them.

One that stands out for me, is Rickster's wooden huts by the river. The range of light and shade from jet black to orange glow, the symmetry and texture of the reflections, the hint of a water wheel barely discernible in the shadows create a sense of mystery and fascination.

Perfectly cropped as well  :) .

I like that picture ddolde. My two questions are where is that and did you intentionally place that boat there or was it by chance? (or does chance simply not exist in the photography world).

i do believe it was sunset. i was pleasantly surprised how clean the photo turned out, since the window in the plane was quite scratched and dirty.
