    Your Best Photograph of 2008!

    Show your best image of 2008!

    Saw this idea on another forum, given the talent here we should see some really incredible stuff.

    I'll start, probably got some good wedding stuff this year but every now and again you make an image and just one look at it and you know that you're going to make money...

    I printed this 20x36 and I love it. Small prints or display just don't really convey the vibe. Taken in Feb in Hong Kong, workers on a bamboo scaffold

    I didn't do much photography in 2008 but this is my most treasured.

    John, that could have been my mother from 4 years ago (she died aged 50 from 3rd bout of cancer). Looked so very similar. Sharing your sorrow.

    It's neither incredible nor a money maker but it makes the cut for my best in 08...so far.

    Re: Your Best Photograph of 2008!

    Hard for me to pick. They are all pretty bad, but hopefully this year will be better. This might be a little large. It would of been much better if I had a wider lens, but I was stuck with the 28mm on the GRD2.

    by a second thought I actually think I prefer this one despite its imperfections
    just a typical Slow Day Here serendipity, still the one I enjoy the most from 2008

    Re: Your Best Photograph of 2008!

    "Best" is a tough qualifier. There are those that I keep going back to but they tend to be different from the ones that others seem to like. So here's a compromise. All the best to everyone in 2009.

    Hello everyone!

    Even though I actually joined the forums last March, this is my first post (lame, I know)! But, I need all the help that I can get! And this site has been so wonderfully informative that I've spent the last year reading, learning, and appreciating all the great people here. So I would like to say thank you and wish everybody a great new year!
    With this being my 1st post and the end of the year, I felt that this would be an appropriate place to start. I don't know if this is "best of" material, But it is one of my favorites. Attachment 10354
    This is just a jpg. straight from the camera.

    One of my resolutions for 2009 is to try and participate more in the forums. I've enjoyed looking at all the images in this thread. Here's one from me - this is Bonnie on the day she came to live with us.

    As it's always hard to dig through all of the year's images, I'll cheat and offer up this one from yesterday ... it's from the annual New Year's polar bear plunge into Lake Michigan. A balmy 25 degrees fahrenheit made the dip almost enjoyable .... almost.

    Re: Your Best Photograph of 2008!

    Bob: a very surreal shot - was that an IR capture or just clever post?

    Kurt: Living in Miami means never having to endure water colder than 75F even in winter (or at least the season that pretends to be winter down here).

    Erik: that shot just screams "ROCK ON!"

    Andy: that shot is so sweet that I may have to turn up my insulin dosage!

    Hi Bob,
    well getting close is one thing, but it helps in these circumstances if the subject is a freshly emerged dragonfly still not capable to get on the wing.
    And some salt of course . . .

    Kind regards.

    Of course,
    the best way to catch a bird, or a dragon-fly for that matter, is to put salt on its tail :-)
    If you can, that is
