    12 shots from 2012

    How about posting 12 shots from 2012? Anyone up for posting one per month as a look back at 2012.
    Here's my offering to kick things off.

    January - my favourite local water mill converted to sepia.

    March - had a great time at Focus on imaging, two beautiful models Ola and the OM-D. Didn't come home with either unfortunately

    May - reworked misty sunrise with lots of composition help from forum friends.

    June - holiday in Malta, it's a lovely place will definitely go back. Too many shots to choose from but went with this as my first attempt to capture a "blue hour" shot

    July - just liked the natural light falling on this begonia flower.

    August - this was a spur of the moment thought to see if I could get a magnified macro through water drops. The combination with the background worked much better than I'd expected.

    September - finally got a bug shot with my 35mm macro without it flying off.

    October - not a particularly brilliant shot but a fun memory for me of Top Gear Live. The thought of a Lambo tractor still tickles me.

    Final two

    November - had to include this as it was such a happy accident. Definitely not a shot I was expecting to look like anything but strangely after some "I'm feeling lucky" processing in Picassa I quite like it.

    December - a little mix of industry and nature, a bit of a soft spot of mine and a definite New Year Resolution to try more in 2013.

    Here's hoping this forum lives long and prospers.

    Phill, I like January, August, and November best. April, May, and December aren't bad either.

    Thanks Raven. I always love the reactions to March... There was definitely no photoshopping done for December. I posed three different geckos with the hat, and ended up liking this photo the best. My little guys are really friendly and patient to allow me to work with them. Here are my favorites of each of the other two geckos.

    1. Leopard Gecko + Santa Hat


    2. White Line Gecko + Santa Hat

    Is this intended to be the best shot of each month or the most representative of that months activities? Phill, Feb, May and December are my favorites from you. Mostly because they're more my style and they are composed really well. Feb has the weakest comp of the ones I listed, but it makes up for it in texture.

    blindeye, your post was kind of cool and kind of gross. :P Feb and June are my favorites from you. Love the details on the lizards.

    I didn't approach this as either the "best of" or "representative of," rather I just skimmed my catalog for anything I had rated fairly high and picked one per month. That's about as close to random as I get.

    Thanks Lukas. I get very mixed reactions to my chosen subject matter. I enjoy both the "cool" and the "gross" responses. Lizards are by far my favorite subjects, but I probably shoot insects/invertebrates more often.

    I like what I see here. For a look at what I consider my NINETEEN best shots of 2012 please take a look here:http://danwiz.com/Bestof2012/BestPage2012.php. How did I arrive at 19? Well I took a look at all of my best shots from 2012, narrowed it down to about 32 and then narrowed it again and just could not get below 19.
