Another year has come and gone and it’s time to for another look back at the photos I have taken in the last year. Like last year Jim is doing a Blog Project called „Best of 2010“ in which I want to participate again (My entry last year).
As last year I could not decide on one best photo – especially since I took so many photographs, both at home and during my Roadtrip last summer (for which I still have not wirtten a blog post…). So like last year, I will have several categories in which I will show you my best photos. My favorite for each categorie is larger than the rest – you can see larger versions of all of them by clicking on an image.
Macro photography has been one of my favorite topics for years now but this year I did not have much time to go to a botanical garden or to spend time shooting in our own garden but still I got some new images I really liked. The thing for me with Macro shots is that I have become very, very picky in my images, since photos can be very similar some times – I’m looking more and more for the unusual than for simple depictions of the flowers.
Okay, I’ll admit it, I was obsessed with HDRs this year – this was heightened even more with the new versions of Photomatix and HDR Efex Pro, which gives my HDR shots a lot more different looks. I used HDR mainly when I was on vacation, so the photos in this category were taken in the USA (Atlanta, New Orleans, Columbus, MS, Natchez, MS, Vicksburg, MS) and in Germany (Meersburg, Konstanz, Dreieich, Frankfurt). And yes, this is a best of and not all pictures I did take – I just had a hard time deciding, since a lot of memories are connected to these images.
So here they are, my best pictures of 2010. Besides the ones shown, I took a lot of iPhone photos this year (some of which I highlighted in my last post) and started taking photos with a film camera (I got it for christmas, so not much to show yet). So next year there will probably be an even wider range of photo subjects.
