As I have done in the past...your best shot for whatever reason for 2015. Use the same rules at the PAD thread. Explain if you want or not.
Slow photography year for me since work has gotten busier and our second kid was born in April.
I will go with this one even though I am not too excited about any this year. This was taken at 5:40 in the morning when my son wouldn't sleep and we were staying at a state park lodge. I took him driving and he eventually fell asleep. I got out and snapped a few shots of the night sky. I liked the way this one turned out.
D5200, D5000, S31, 18-55 VR, 17-55 F2.8, 35 F1.8G, 105 F2.8 VR, 300 F4 AF-S (Previously owned 18-200 VRI, Tokina 12-24 F4 II)
D810 | Nikon 14-24mm @ 14mm | 8s | f/3.5 | ISO 800
This was a different year for me, I ended up with 2 new cameras, a Sony RX100 MkI and a LG Nexus 5x... and I used it more than my D7000 unfortunately. It's mostly because it's big and not as convenient as the other two devices for me.
If you are talking to me, it is this one, which I uploaded to: https://www.flickr.com/groups/yourbestshot2015
This shot was the result of a sleepless night for which I resolved by getting up at 2am to shoot.
According to Flickr, it is this one:
Which was also put in this gallery by Flickr's gallery "Canada: top geotagged photos in 2015":
Based on Flickr, I would say the above....it was also put in Flickr's gallery "Nigeria: top geotagged photos in 2015" http://www.flickr.com/x/t/0170006/photos/flickrdata/galleries/72157662275114102/
Love nature in general , so when Care Alto mountain came into view it struck me, Alps
I dont know if it is my favorit but I can smell that day when I look at this photo.
This is Raluca (Luca), a friend and work associate of mine. I photographed her for the first time back in October 2013 and this is our second outing. She's a hobby photographer as well. Native of Romania. Perhaps I'll post up a couple more from the shoot in 2016
2016 looks so far like it's going to be video where I need to focus my learning on...
I choose this photo as "favorite" as I had just met this girl that would model for me, Lea, and looked at the clothes she brought I just knew how this shot would turn out.
I've had these moments a lot more in 2015 than the years prior, so I feel I'm making progress, but there is still so much to learn.
Well, the lighting sucked this day and frankly this isn't the best photo I took in 2015, but it is my favorite. So it gets the nod for this forum. The iconic Chance-Vought F4U Corsair (this is actually an FG-1D Corsair manufactured by Goodyear, but when I call it that people try to correct me and argue about who made the Corsair in WWII). Taken at the Olympic Airshow in Olympia, Washington on a typical cloudy Pacific Northwest afternoon. I appreciate that you can pick out nearly every rivet on the airplane even though the light was so poor and that on this day at this time my panning technique was close to perfect with great detail and still plenty of prop blur.
