What a year!Β 

2012 has been an unbelievable year. I’ve created more commissioned work for others, and more of my work is finding its way onto people’s walls. I also feel I’m continuing to learn and grow as a photographer. I’d like to share with you my favorite 12 images from the past year.

(For this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge theme: Surprise. The “surprise?” I can’t count, my favorite 12 of 2012 is actually 20! Enjoy!)

  1. What a wonderful selection of photos. Do you do any color correction? I am a newbie and am still at the rapidly rise portion of the learning curve.

    1. Thanks Keenan. In virtually all of my photographs the colors have been “worked on.” I firmly believe in “getting it right in camera” when it comes to exposure and composition. “Fix it in Photoshop” is not im my vocabulary. However, with all but my wildlife images, I strive for an artistic representation of the scene before me, and to that end I love and use the full suite of Nik Creative Plugins.

      I usually, but not always, have an idea of how I want the final image to look at the time of capture. For any of my images to be successful I want to give the viewer a “WOW” experience when they are viewing one of my photographs. Not have them thinking “that doesn’t even look real.”

      I hope that answers your question. If you have any more, feel free to ask.

    1. Thank you, and I’m glad you’re having a tough time choosing. I know I sure did. I gave up trying to limit it to 12, stopping at 20 wasn’t that much easier. πŸ™‚

  2. Fabulous as usual Jeff. Hard to choose a favorite, but I especially loved Foss Mountain, Hunter, Acadia Sunset, and Color in the Waves. πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t remember seeing this pic of Hunter and “Tenacity” before. Your idea was excellent! In your place I would place the link on the WPC page…. Yours was a beautiful, beautiful year!!!

    1. “Tenacity” was shared for the first time in this post, and except for my facebook page, this is the first appearance (I think) that Hunter has made on my blog. Boy do we love that boy!

  4. Spectacular all Jeff! Can imagine how long it must have taken you to shortlist these. The snowy owl in the dunes is my favourite πŸ™‚
