Default 5 Best of the Year

I know that I posted the challenge for this month as best of 2014...but I started to go through mine and it's crazy hard to make a choice. Maybe to help narrow it down a bit, I thought it would be fun to post the your best 5 and a little bit about each one in no particular order. Then maybe you can find a favorite amongst those for the challenge thread!

I'll be posting my 5 in a bit!

Some transient young people that seem happier than most people I know. I can only imagine some of the things they've done and seen.

Picking 5 is a neat idea but 5 times harder so here are my picks from this year

Watching Pelicans diving I got this during a takeoff of the pelican grabbing air with my Q7 and 06 lens (70-200 equiv) from Naples Pier Florida

Also from Florida with my K30 with 55-300 on a nature walk also in Naples got quite a few birds on this walk but this was my favorite shot

During a sailboat race (I crew on a friends boat) this spring with the finish into the sunset I had time to get in a shot as the wind was dying down

In Mykonos Greece during our European vacation this fall, got many memorable shots but I kind of like this one maybe it’s the sailboat thing.

At dinner the other day I saw this out the restaurant window and just had to go out and get this shot before dinner was served

Even picking 5 is a challenge, I had to cheat not all the images were shot with my Pentax gear. I can’t handle a DSLR during racing I need something sacrificial and one handed. And dinner in a nice restaurant just doesn’t feel right with a big camera on the table so I bring a small P&S.

...It is better to burn a roll of film than curse the darkness. Equip. K30, Q7, DAL 55-300, DA 35 f2.4, DA 50 f1.8 DA 18-135, SMC-M 28 f3.5, SMC M 50 f1.4, Canon P&S S100 w/CHDK Beta, Panasonic DMC-GM5, Flickr:
