Personal best, but still not amazing.

Even though it was shot in 2006, it is just my favorite entry out of my 2009 challenge entries.

Some interesting stats for me for 09: Entered 11 challenges, 3 entries were Woody entries, 4 entries had my son Riley in them, 2 entries had my son Brian in them, 1 entry had me in it, 2 entries had fire in them and I had one Godzilla entry. I think 2010 will be the year of more fire.

I've gotten a lot of really splendid comments on it from people whom I respect.

I'm not sure this is one of the best shots of 2009 for me but here it is my 2nd highest scoring image with the 2nd highest views and comments. It's interesting how these stats work here. I would consider this one of my least time consuming entries. Also this was taken with my point and shoot, which I got for it's long lens, and this is a macro shot at 5mm focal length. I just wish I knew what makes a good image here. I think there are many here among us that feels the same.

Ironically, my personal favorite is the one the scored the lowest for me. I entered this one on the Spirit of the Country Challenge. I think it scored low mainly because many don't know what a Jeepney is just like what Jeger said or I guess the photo isn't quite universal but hey it depicts my country to a "T". But the description says it all, but of course voters don't see the whole description until the voting is over. Anyhow, I am happy with this photo regardless of how it scored.

And my red of course...

Personally, I loved what I accomplished with lighting, mood and composition (Lighting was a bear but I got what I wanted in the larger panel as well as a beautiful shot of my eldest child).

What voters thought most successful (Yellow Ribbon) and absolutely love it too because the candid moment caught was far better than the posed shots of my youngest.

Not the highest, but I really like how it came out. First time procerssing a HDR image, then ran it through topaz. I don't do heavy processing, so this was a good learnng one for me.

My most successful shot of the year will probably be in the Best of 2009 challenge. It's earned me around $1,000 in profit selling prints and led to other opportunities which are still coming to fruition. :)
12/30/2009 10:11:10 PM · #38
although not my highest scoring but one i actually thought of for a whole week and then when we had a bit of warm weather drove to catch the sunrise at a golf course one friday morning i had off {even planned that too}
it was satisfying to see that the planning worked and i got the shot i was hoping for and it was my first HDR submission
even tho it didnt score all that well i still like it as my fav for 09

Most successful by score, oddly enough is this one:

followed closely by:

The one below I would consider my most successful non challenge photo of 2009

and it was shot with my cheapest lens (using my cheapie D40)...

I used a beat up old Nikon MF 55mm Macro lens I got with a Nikon FM film camera for $35 on ebay... not bad eh?

It was such a simple shot to execute. Little/no processing required. And it came out the way I saw it before shooting. What else could I ask for? (It doesn't hurt that its my highest scoring image on this site either!)

Went to a reptile zoo, and this was the first reptile I took photos of. Never thought it would do as well as it did, and I am still surprised by it. Also, my first 7... I received a score I had only envied before.

I had taken this and did not really like the composition but I had a few people tell me they loved it. I since re-edited it and printed on canvas at 24 x 36 and have sold a number of copies. Once I re-edited and printed it large I saw what others saw.

A well thought out and planned image, carefully crafted for light and composition........ NOT,
Actually it was shot from a small airplane at 120mph and 800 ft altitude, and it was a grab shot . Maybe I should shoot all my challenge entries that way.

For me I would have to say that this is my most successful entry of 2009 so far, based on the score and the comments as well as all the views and favorites posted to the image but I still have my December free study shot to go so we'll see :)

MAX!
