Annual 10 Best:

My Test Photos for 2009

This is a delayed 10 best, compiled at the end of 2011 instead of 2009. I started doing annual ten best collections at the end of 2010 and thought it would be fun to go back look at prior years. With benefit of hindsight, I now see 2009 as a seminal photographic year for me. I had the opportunity to take two big international trips and looking back I feel 2009 is the year where I transitioned into my current style of richer photography. There were hints of it in prior years but 2009 is the first time where my images are dominated by big, bold colors.
