Very nice sets of photos, well done.
Thanks so much, Jim! I really appreciate the compliment!
Tim you caught some really good ones in 2018. Can you see a difference in your images of 2017/early 2018 and what you are accomplishing now? I do!
First off, Pat, thank you so much for your ongoing support and
kind comments. They mean so much!
As you may remember, I've been a "shutterbug" for over 60 years
and went from "snap shots" to studio work and wedding photography,
and then trying to capture all those special family moments.
To answer your question, I do feel my style has changed considerably
in the last year especially. Today, I really try to capture a different perspective,
try to double check my exposure, focus and composition. DSLRs do give you
the ability to instantly check your image, so with any luck, you can refocus,
recompose or whatever. But getting comfortable with my equipment AND
my style seem to be the best changes I've made over the last year.
A good many of pictures that I took this year are of birds, so I will save most of the best of these for my challenge later this month. However here are a few of the pictures I took this year that I am fond of....
Pg. 11 - Beautiful series, Kat. I can see why you
are fond of these!
A few of my favorites...
on the last one---
I had been down a hill looking for a shot...
when I got back up to the truck,
this was staring me in the face...
I hope I did it justice...
Pg. 13 - Nicely done, Danersmiff. Love your perspective.
Well, I won't pretend these are contenders for &qu... (
Pg. 13 - Well, for a "novice," Whlsdn, you nailed this series! Beautifully
presented. I'm a sucker for sunrises and sunsets, and these are gorgeous.
For the Challenge "Best shots of 2018".....
Pg. 13 - Nice series, and I especially love the last one.

Took a quick look back and picked these out because I liked them.....Didn't get through all of them but think these are enough for now...
Pg. 14 - Nice series, Judy! The last two
really put a smile on my face!
Pg. 15 - Great fireworks, Jim! I've never been able
to master them....yet...LOL
I have many favorites, and am not 100% sure what would be my best. I'll post in categories I guess. Will have to go back and check out the posts. This post would be my favorite waterfall pics. Same falls, different times of day and year. #2 Earned a blue ribbon at Maine's largest Fair
Pg. 16 - Nice series, Pat. You've always presented
some beautiful images of water features, and I
especially love these. And #2 is my favorite and not
only would have gotten the blue ribbon from me, but
a "Best in Show" as well.
The first two sunset over the Pacific Ocean and the last two are sunrise over Green Bay.
Pg. 19 - Nicely presented, Jim. #3 is incredibly beautiful.
Some favorite sunrises/sunsets. #2 taken with iPhone 8S from moving car! (to clarify I was not the driver
Pg. 21 - What a stunning series, Pat. And #2 may have
been from a cell phone, but it should win a ribbon as well!
My Best Wildlife Shots of 2018..
Pg. 21 - Great series, Lesley. It's hard to believe
you have all those critters in your back yard...
one of the most unusual sunrises over the river, for me this year...
Pg. 21 - Gorgeous, Danersmiff!
I owe you, and Photogirl 17, and Patography some thanks!!
So Thanks!! Thanks for taking the time!
Pg. 21 - Gorgeous, Danersmiff!
