Your best/favorite image of 2011
« on: January 01, 2012, 07:14:11 AM »

Happy New Year! Let's see your best or favorite image from last year, or alternatively something to do with New Year itself.

Here mine from last night, of the latter category. 2012 (hopefully) shining bright with 2011 (thankfully) fading into black.

Here's my favourite landscape shot of 2011.  The calm and peacefulness of witnessing dawn on the north rim after a good hike in starlight was special.  This photograph prints pretty well too.

Hmmm... probably this one, from Botanical Beach, Juan de Fuca Provincial Park:

Nice image Slobadan. I've never seen that in the winter. That is the Crown Fountain in the winter designed by Juame Plensa. In the warmer months there are faces of the people of Chicago facing each other on those towers blowing water out their mouths at each other. I was one of 4 videographers who shot all those faces.

Well Slobodan, I like your image a lot and even more when I saw it larger, as I was able to see more detail. To me it has the appearance of slide film. The juxtaposition of the elements is wonderful.

This is one of my favourite images of the year. Not often I get to use a horizontal pan to convey a landscape. I am pleased with the way it turned out and the simplicity of colours and forms.

Okay, not really my genre, but of what I've effed about with, this one takes my fancy somewhat. Games with reflex lenses.

Another thing I found and liked last year was this:

http://youtu.be/xZliiH0xTIo

Why? becaue part of the thing was shot just about 150yds from where I live - there's a moment with a big billboard frame - it isn't any longer there; there's a holiday complex instead. You wonder I hate tourism? (Why can't it stay the early 80s forever - or any time from the mid-50s?)

Apart from that, I was still young, as was my wife; we were together and our son and his bird were out here on holiday staying with us; an age of optimism, almost as much as were the 60s. That darker-haired girl in the vido probably represents what I liked best in females, as well as their clothes.

I shall dream for hours now - probably even forget to do the lunch dishes and go out for a coffee.

Limiting myself to a choice of landscapes (this is Luminous Landscape, after all), here's my favourite of those I've taken

Very well seen and executed, Bill!

Hi,

For me 2011 was not one of great images, but I had a lot of fun making this one.

Best regards
Erik

Hey Rob, I really like the image. Didn't much like the video though. But I take your point about dreaming and why, as you're melding memories with images and reality. To me, your image works and is evocative, just like a dream!

Some wonderful images here so far. One of my favourite photos I tokk last year was from a beach in Southwest Portugal that I often visit. This time I had permission from the missus to stay until late, so I just sat down and enjoyed the peacefulness of the place, the mist the fading light, and the gentle breeze. This was shot the day after Christmas.

Not sure if it is my best photo, but certainly my best memory: a misty morning in the Lake District last Summer.

Like Wim above - not sure if it's my best shot of the year but one that evokes very happy memories of a wonderful week spent walking and photographing in Scotland with my wife and my dog
