It's not a competition, just a celebration of the photos PHers have posted smile

KISS back on tour again?
Think they've overdone the pyrotechnics just a touch.

Loved this thread last year. I'll try and keep my selection diverse. In no particular order.

I really need to get my camera back out. Don't know about competing with any these due to the fact they are stunning, but just the thought of getting the chance to capture those moments and the places to visit. Great work guys

As varied a selection as possible from me.

Edit - Mark, that lighting shot is ridiculous.

Christ you b'stards are a depressing bunch! biggrin
Oh to be able to take shots like some of those.

Mark, loving the 1st image, and the last, albeit without as much colour push. Thanks for the reply about the bag, btw.
Paul, love the star trail one, and your 5th is sublime.

This is really difficult! The standard of photography on this forum is unbelievable, its a real privilege to view/share photographs on here.

Hope 2013 is even better!

There are some really stunning shots on this thread, as usual. This is the most consistently good photo website that I've found (odd on a car forum, but there you go).

These are the five of mine that I like best today at this moment. I'll post them now before I change my mind again.

In a photography slump now, so it's good to look back and see that 2012 was actually OK.

I know a lot of you are saying you're struggling to choose your top 5 shots. But I'm struggling to find 5 decent shots. Was pretty much my first year with an dslr so hopefully I'll improve in the new year.

Rethought mine a bit. Top 5 isn't enough!

Maybe it should be 12, going along with this Ansel Adams quote "Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop."

Anyway it's been a good year for me switched from a limping D200 to a 5D Mk2 and had a pretty significant shift in my style of photography. More or less a realisation that to me landscape photography is a lot more than just chasing the colours of a sunrise/sunset and started concentrating more on the details that make this country beautiful rain or shine.

I'll give this a go when I get home tonight but mine will be nothing like the standard already posted. Those photos are all stunning.

This thread has left me feeling depressed about my own lack of talent.

I won't be posting.

Don't be depressed, be inspired!

This is probably the friendliest place to ask how things are done and to find ideas you can try yourself. It's how I'm learning.



(but yeah, I know where you're coming from!)
