So far it's this one, but I've still got another 3,000 or so to go through.

Default A year of change for me.

I swithced entire systems this year, so I wanted to use the new toys as I got them. It pushed me from a prior dominance of super-tele to using some of the rest of the lens selection.

What I wouldn't give to not have a metal building in the background.



The focus was on the one in the bakground until this one came out.

Hi Greg,

Great idea!

This is always one of the hardest things for me to do. First, because I take way too many photos each year, then keeping most of them. For one reason or the other, they all strike a cord within me. So, it is very difficult to pick my favorites.
These are all that, for one reason or another have won awards in various competitions that I entered this year:







These last two are reminders why I chose to go to Nikon for my equipment:

I'm going with Steve's opinion. Nikon D300s + Nikkor 10.5mm FE taken at Bryce Canyon National Park.

I'm selfish in the posting of the thread

Every photographer has their own soul, and the pics they choose to post reveal that soul. In so much as a photo moves me, that is something shared, even though my sliver my be under-developed. That reveals an area to expand into for the future. Its a way to grow, so to speak.

Three have posted as I write this. There are certainly three individual styles. There isn't right or wrong, good or bad, just different things that drive the photographer.

Your floral shots are perfection. The swan is magestic.
