Hey folks—it's that time again! Please share 3 to 6 of your best (or favorite, if not best) photographs from 2018. 

 

I know it's challenging to limit ourselves to 6 or fewer photos, but it's a good exercise, right? No limits on genre or post-processing style or anything else.

 

This is one of my favorite threads of every year—you all never cease to amaze!

Thanks, Peter and Fletch! Those are both really strong sets--I actually remember seeing most of those photographs throughout the year, so they're memorable as well as lovely.

 

I haven't made many photos this past year, so I don't have much to show. Here are a few:

I'll be working on getting my camera out more often this year!

Right, Irwin, the portraits are very good indeed!  

 

That one is excellent, man…  well done!

Here's my selection.  I've probably posted some of these during the year but I think at least a few are new here.  The majority of my photography takes place at the race track, but I've included a couple landscape and wildlife photos for variety.

 

1. Shenandoah National Park

2. Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs

3. Okefenokee Swamp resident

4. Also from Okefenokee

5. Racing on dirt

This is hard.  I haven't posted much this year but I did traveled a lot and should have posted more.  I have many favorites but I'll keep it under 15

I already posted my b&w selection but I thought I'd add some colour images here.

 

At the end of 2017, I bought a sony a7ii when they went down in price significantly and there was a cash back as well.

I've added some old lenses, or reactivated them. 5 of the selection are with these lenses.

Last one is on film, with a nikon fm3a.

 

Pentax A 50 1.2

Most of the year was with Pentax gear. This is two of them.

I dont know of they qualify as "best" but they are ones I still enjoy looking at. I guess for my first year with a DSLR I can brag a bit.

Well, I wish you a 500/4 - just to see what you do with it. They’re stunning pics!

PS If people are in a wishing mood, I’ll have a D850
