Favourites from 2011.

This is something new for me, the first time I’ve selected some favourites from the past year. It makes you wonder why you haven’t done it before, athough it could be seen as perhaps a touch vain, I see it as at least showing some people what you’ve been doing during the year photographically. Something that doesn’t really happen usually. Perhaps modesty prevented me doing it before.

I discovered the idea in JMG Dalleries, the blog of photographer Jim Goldstein. You can visit the best photo blog project here Blog Project – Your Best Photos From 2011. This closes 7th January and the results should be posted a few days later. Last Years results are worth a look if you are interested.

I’ve made a decision not to post any details with the images, just a short title for each. Please feel free to post any comments, it will be interesting to see your thoughts. There are a few landscapes, but most are Closescapes. Thanks for looking, Marshall.

Out of interest, I just popped back to Lightroom to check what lenses were used for these shots, thinking maybe half were with the 90mm TSE that has been my favourite lens since I got it about 15 years ago. It was eleven out of the fifteen shots here. Next was the 70-200mm zoom, followed by 180mm Macro and 24mm TSE. I think this reflects the way my eye has developed over the years, my first “real” lens was a Vivitar 90mm macro, and it was some years before I added anything else to my set up. My vision seems to match the 90mm field of view best, perhaps you could say I see in 90mm, so the Canon 90mm TSE suits me really well. That 24mm TSE has got some lovely shots this year, but they aren’t my favourites, in fact that lens only just sneaked in.

    There are some real gems in here. I especially like the intimate pebble landscapes. 3 2 1 beeches is also really terrific.

      Thanks for looking Roberta. You liked my 321 and I liked your 123! Some lovely shots in your tops from 2011 too. Interesting way you use focus and depth of field. Cheers.

    Really nice work here Marshall. I also love working with stones and beach rocks, so all of those have a particular appeal to me. Very elegant compositions.
