Assignment 16: Best Photos of 2011

Views Infinitum’s latest photo challenge is to post a minimum of one’s three best photos from Nov. 2010–Nov. 2011. Hmm . . . kinda like when someone asks you what your favorite book is: what genre? what country? what period? But here it goes:


New tulips that I planted last fall (the name escapes me) are so perfect and spotless–I like the DoF and the texture on the petal. Morning light–you can’t beat it! 

Cave Run Lake, Kentucky

It was a grey day so I tried a B&W shot which came out fine. The water droplets on the tail are fairly noticeable. I think the shiny scales added to the success of this humorous photo. (Dapper G is a sports fisherman and catches huge tuna, shark, and marlin.)

9th Street Bridge

A favorite mood photo–I like the bits of red which break the monochromatic look. t’s very Sherlock Holmesy! This is a photo I took while in my PJs! One must take advantage of the moment.

Depression Glass with crape myrtle

I liked the color combination here and the bit of reflection on the counter. I started collecting green depression glass when I was eighteen and have a place setting for twelve in a specific pattern.

If you are a photographer, go to Views Infinitum’s blog to join this challenge. It’s a great way to be exposed to other photographers. Now, Viewers, I’m looking for some genuine critiques!

  2. These are terrific especially the fogy and fish one… Oy vey, sounds like a bad novel title but you no which photos I’m referring to. 😆
    I’m working on catching up again after a hectic workshop week again. 🙂

  3. OK – first point – you can’t count!;)
    In all 4 you have used the natural light that must have been available. I love the reflections in the lilac one. The fog picture has a great feel of a ‘blanket’ over the shot but you still have reflections. I’m very glad I don’t have to choose!
