    Those are great shot Jorgemonkey. I especially like the colored seascape and the feather.

    Thanks for the walk down memory lane that I took while looking at my shots from this year. It made me realize how successful this year has been for me in getting shots that I like. It was hard to pick just 4 shots. I probably wouldn't pick the same 4 tomorrow.

    I hope a lot of folks post in this thread.

    Nice choices Nat. I like how you catch your daughter's pensive mood. Have you played with your food lately?

    I would not say these are my best of 2005, but they were the ones I had here at work and I do like them all. Hope you do too.

    You all have probably seen them before... but here goes.

    Btw, I started shooting May 25, 2005, so I still got some catching up to do but, I guess not too bad for 6 or so months...

    After looking at all the pics so far, that is my feeling, too. I have a long way to go to equal the shots in the thread so far.

    Come on guys, I posted mine!! Don't let me be the only noob posting in this thread...

    Mine aren't the greatest, but they are some of my best, you shouldn't be ashamed of your work, everyone here knows this is a learning process. Looking back sometimes helps you to move forward, maybe you will find where you want to go, or what you want to try for the next year. For me, it is about fun and a challenge, if I let it stop being fun, I'll lay down my equiptment.

    4 great shots Larry. I don't think I've seen that 'baby doing a bridge' shot or anything like it before. The dandy is one that I still need to do successfully for myself. You can't find a better picture of a Grandmother's love anywhere.

    Thanks Masdog, so do I. It was one of the shots I gave to Mom for Mother's Day this year. It's not our farm but it's some Wisconsin scenery for her walls in Arizona.

    Thanks Chunk. I appreciated your kind words. Jack is becoming my favorite subject, wish I had him around full time to take pictures of. I just hope that 2006 will be a fruitful year for my photography. I need to find an inspiration.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Your Best Photos from 2005

    I really like #4. Your post improved month by month thru out 2005. You are no doubt the master of the pattern shots. I hope that I can improve my eye this year and start to challenge you in this category. If I were to make a New Years resolution it would be to put myself in better picture taking situations. Like geting up and out and catching the fog like you did early in the morning. Great year with the camera Chunk.

    A year to be proud of Michael. I like that first on the best. The whole feel of the image grabs me. Love the silky look of the water fall.

    Amen on the fun part!! That's what it is all about folks. If it ain't fun than don't do it. This thread is not a contest. Just a chance for everyone to show case what they think are some of their best from last year. It's going to be a hoot to go back and check this thread out in 12 months. Come on everyone join in the fun. Make this one of the biggest threads of the year.

    Beautiful as always Adina. I think all our list would change from day to day. I know my favorites change very often.
