    Post your favourite shot of 2011

    Hi all. I'm just curious which shots you feel are your favourites, not necessarily your best, just the one you liked the best


    I liked this one, we went to the local apple orchard in early September, and I was crouched under the trees and saw my daughter munching an apple she picked from a branch

    Burning Man, Temple of Transition
    Walking thru it, and reading the walls is probably one of the most moving experiences of my life.

    At least one of my favorites of 2011 ...



    Bicyclist On Jurby Road - Sandygate, Isle of Man 2011
    Ricoh GXR-M + M-Rokkor 90mm f/4

    Hard to keep things to just one favorite. :-)

    Not sure how to post bigger for viewing instead of having to click on picture to view larger. Would appreciate a tip. Happy New Year! Frank

    Tough decisions...

    and Away


    Of course reviewing my best/most interesting/favorite photos for the year was an interesting exercise itself. Noticing higher hit rates with certain lenses.. for one thing.

    I hope you don't mind if I play--I saw a few not taken with Leica. Pentax 645D. Believe it or not, hand held. From an idea I started working with toward the end of the year.

    Oops....sorry, I just realized this is a thread in the Leica forum and there I was, posting a Hasselblad image. Sorry!

    I don't have ANY decent shots in 2011 from my R8, certainly none that would have been worthy of inclusion in this thread.

    LOL ... I didn't even realize it was in the Leica forum.
    My posted shot was made with the M-Rokkor 90mm f/4 (aka Elmar-C 90mm f/4) and with a Ricoh GXR+A12 Camera Mount ... a bona fide Leica M-Bayonet camera body. I hope that counts. ;-)

    Hmmm
    Well, I've only just realised it's the Leica forum as well. Maybe it should be moved to . . .somewhere else . . . Anyway, the Leica forum is nicely laid back, and I'm sure that everyone is pleased to see other shots in such a thread

    anyway here are a couple of Leica shots.

    Contender:

    Perfect



    . . .oops . . . I've just seen some dust bunnies on CHAMP - so it'll have to wait for another day . . .

    Very, very tough to choose as I have two absolute Leica favourites - but I opt for this one because it was my best seller in 2011. (I have posted it here before.)

    Amazing photos everyone! While I have many other photos I appreciate from a technical perspective, this one keeps drawing me back, so my personal favorite of the year and why I love this hobby (1 of my kids). M9+50/.95

    Inspirational work in this thread!

    I liked these from 2011:

    1st - M8; 90mm f/2.5; 1/1500s; ISO 160


    2nd -M9; 24mm f/1.4; 1/250s; +2/3 EV; ISO 160


    Now, I'll crawl back into my hole for a while.

    I had a hard time deciding between pictures (new Leica M9 only for the last 3 months):

    Weed at Sunset, Westchester, New York
    Tappan Zee Bridge and Hudson River
    Couple on Subway, New York City
    Dancing Duo, High Line, New York City
    Amsterdam Canal at Daybreak
