<<< o >>>Happy New Year 20 comments + add yours

I've spent the last couple of days wondering what to post to close out the year and then came across this entry on momentaryawe.com (run by my good friend Catalin Marin): his twelve favourite shots from 2009, one from each month. So, with credit to Catalin for the idea, here are my twelve favourites for the preceding year. Had I selected images from the year as a whole I suspect that there would be a couple of changes, and I also suspect that some of you would make different choices from each month, but when I looked back through the images I'd posted this year these are the ones that gave me most pleasure to produce.

As always, let me know what you think.

On a different matter: don't forget that there are just a few days left in which to snap up a 15% discount on our Photoshop tutorials. Further details here:


And finally: Happy New Year for 2010 :)

Impressive compilation. I specially enjoyed the End of the Day and the Marlboro stubs. But the rest are impeccable as well. An exercise of imagination, skill, meticulousness and creativity. Happy New Year my friend.

Wonderful, wonderful images. Perfect choices. Your portraits of your family constantly amaze me, and the two here are two of my all time favorites. Thank you for sharing these. Have a fantastic new year!!

Excellent body of work David, although many of my personal favorites are missing. But when you have so many great shots to choose from I know how hard it is to choose just a few...

I looked back at all the thumbs for the 2009 and I have say an excellent choice of 12 favorites. It seems no matter which 12 you pick, you will always end up with an interesting set. Thanks for all your help in 2009. I can't wait to see wait your plans are for this new year. Each year gets better and better. Happy New Year!

What are the chances of creating another calendar like the one from 08? I still have it even though it's outdated :)
