A pal here has asked me to start this thread. He wasn't quite sure where to put it, or so he says.:wink:

Let's ring out the soon to be old year with each of us posting three of our own favorites. I don't care what kind of camera you've used, but try to fit at least one in from a "serious compact". In addition, there's no time limit, so this thread will remain open for uploading, attaching or embedding. Just do us all a favor and let us seem them in their full glory.:cloud-9-039:

Venice Beach, Panasonic GF1, 20mm, near dusk:



Melbourne, Panasonic GF1, 20mm, at dawn:



Kilauea, Hawaii, Leica M8, Voigtlander 28mm f/1.9 Ultron, at dawn:



Interesting, I hadn't realized how much I preferred my dusk/dawn photos. I think I'm going to have to think about that some more (and maybe get up early, perish the thought.)
 
It was exceedingly hard to pick 3. In the end, the 3 that I chose were all from my Olympus E-P1 (but to be fair, I have only had the Nikon D90 for about 1 month).

I have to go back to that spot when there is a BIG sunrise. In the last one, it was difficult to pick between Judy or her son Ben but Ben won out in the end. He is a natural model...

this first one was from a summer music festival shot last July. It is a favorite for two reasons. First off it was a very fun day and had some great music (that is Brian "Head" Welch, formally of Korn), but mainly because I got to shoot it with my 13 year old son and was the coolest Dad ever because I got him a photo pass. That is him with the SLR in the frontand the camo hat

I like this one because it is from the first day that I shot with my Samsung TL500/EX1

you should be able to figure it out...
THREE!!!??? I had trouble narrowing it down to 190ish for the photo-book I put together for the end of year (which gets to Wally's point about how much noise/garbage survives in the digital era!). Here are three that are representative of my favorite shots, but I'd pick a completely different three tomorrow. One landscape, one abstract (sort of), and one street/people kind of shot. And this is no more than as the mood strikes me this morning - I have at least 10 others from each category that I like at least as much. But three it is...

Olympus E-P2 with 17mm pancake lens - probably not my best street/people shot in any number of ways, but there's something about the way the little girl is trying to be just like her mom and they're both adjusting their VERY stylish sunglasses at the same moment that I just love. Good or bad, its definitely a favorite.

Hi all, I've really enjoyed viewing all the images from SC members - lots of variety, imagination and skill on display. For me 2010, photography has been educational, exhilarating, and most of all, FUN.

Here's one with the camera that re-kindled the fun - my son and niece flying in Disney and me with the lightweight e-pl1

P8120647-1.jpg


The e-pl1 is a great camera but something else came along to grab my interest - the NEX-3 on my cruise (without the kids!!)

Lastly, a photo that combines a couple of new avenues of photo exploration - macros and LR3

This is a very interesting thread, not least because it made me go back and look through 2010's output and conclude that this has been a lean year compared to 2009.

I'm going to follow BBW's approach and post one image at a time. Here's the first one:

This one comes from my favourite shooting location, the Munich U-Bahn system. Unfortunately, I no longer live in Munich.

This is the platform level of the Bohmerwaldplatz stop on the U4 line taken last February. The station was empty except for the one guy sitting just behind the pillar.

OK, everyone - please note the slightly edited title. It's now "...3 of your favorite photos of 2010". I know, I know...so many photos, so many favorites.

I'm about to post my third... It has been a trying time...:daz:

Hmm. Not easy to choose.. Looking at the pictures I have taken I tend to get overly critical and get a feeling that most of them are not very interesting. But I like these three (all taken with Olympus E-P1, #1 with Panasonic 20mm, the two others with the Oly 17mm):
