But they are not my favourite images at all. I would say my most successful was the blurry trees that scored above 6, which I believed was against the odds.

4 Different kinds/conditions of light, all rendered to my personal satisfaction; I think I'm getting better at this business of being faithful to the light, without necessarily being literal about it.

Hands down my most successful shot of the year. And I feel a fitting tribute to the tiger, who has since passed away. I initially thought it was the female cub but after comparing to other shots I have of her I realised it was one of the boys.

RIP Satri, thanks for a hell of a shot mate.

Not sure how I missed this thread originally, but this is definitely my most 'successful' image in 2009. Although I'm no longer exactly sure what that 'success' means. heh.

I suppose it would be this one, which apparently convinced people that I was able to get these young ladies to pose in the park, each holding up several pounds of two-foot chunks of processed meat impaled on wooden swords ... :-(

I guess as my top-scoring picture (ever) this would also qualify ...

You're too good to me, posthumous. I almost came back to qualify that statement. In terms of scoring, 2009 was awful for me. I entered about 25 challenges, and only four of those placed above my average. (Two of those four were shots from the previous year.)

In spite of that, I learned a lot in 2009, did a lot of experimenting, and had a lot of fun. I'm happier with the shots I'm producing, even if most of them are lost on the masses.

Wow


The best part is that you picked this as your most successful entry.


I won't be kind: the man has an eye
and uses it,
not to bat, unless with a bang. Hell,

I bet his
would be one of the most
remarkable ports,

if he cleaned out the closet. Hi
-5 us, Ziggy. Hide

the appetizers.

Half of my profile page entries are from 2009, which is a good thing. Also had some real stinkers scorewise so my overall average didn't change much, I don't think.
