Photo of the Year 2010

This blog was started in July.  I am still learning. 

Most of the really good photography in 2010 belongs to the other CDP bloggers, not me.

But, here is one that I think I got right.

It was for Weekend Reflections in November.  I liked the composition, the setting, the stillness of the water, the vertical lines, the black-and-white feeling of a gloomy and overcast day, and the few red and blue highlights that sneaked into the picture.

City Daily Photo's Theme Day for January is "Photo of the Year 2010."  We should see some wonderful photography on CDP blogs today!  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

You are being far too modest; it's an excellent photo and the choice of B&W is perfect for it!

That's a great photo! Thanks for the nice comment - I am new to the theme thing and must have done something wrong! Who knows? Happy New Year!

Well, if you play golf like you take pictures, you must be a pro! Can't beat this image with a three-iron! Super shot!

I made a mess of the golf course yesterday - couldn't do anything right - shot a C-note. It was really ugly!

Hope you're having a great 1/1/11 and that you have a whole year of great days in 2011!

You've got a lot of great shots. I really appreciate what you do. Nice work and happy New Year! This shot is great, by the way.

This is a fabulous shot, Jack, and as I remember you have show us many really great ones. I love the near black/white appearance of this harbor scene and that little pop of red just sets it off!

Best wishes to you in the new year!
Genie

Beautiful work here. The near red and distant blue on opposite sides draws the eye in a diagonal across the harbour. Very nice choice!

A photo to be proud of - very serene. Happy New Year, Jack. Hope to meet you in PV sometime.
