Favorite photos from 2010

Cross posted from Vivid Elegance Blog;

I took a few thousand photographs in 2010 through a wide range of subjects: portraits, food, products, a school play, vacations, a couple of births, and many birthdays. Here are a few of my favorites.

The Vice President of Lincoln Mortgage. One of my annual clients and the best photo on their staff page (I don't take the rest).

My sister-in-law asked me to take her family's Christmas portraits this year. I just love the expression on my 6 month old nephew's face in this image.

Asta 20100730 006.jpgLike many pet owners, I have way too many photos of my dog. I took this photo while testing the focus with my Canon 7D / 70-200 2.8 IS combo. I think he was stalking a squirrel or something.

Good beer, maybe a little sour. You can probably still find it, but not for very much longer. The highlights on the top and side edges of the glass show textbook dark field lighting technique, and I love the way the green table fades into black.

Football food! Tastes great, easy to make, and better for you than fried. Plus another Navy win over Army.

So yummy. Such great blueberries in 2010. I love the circle of light and the reddish shadow on the stem. I just wish I could have done a better job getting rid of the distracting highlights on the snifter.

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMugA 2 year old with no fear. After jumping off the diving board into the deep end, he likes to float around the pool with his swimmies on. Polarizing filter took the glare off the water to make this image.

Napa 2010 351The view from Armida winery during the Napa vacation Wifey and I took with my parents. We liked this image so much, we printed it on wrapped canvas and hung it in the dining room.

Napa 2010 229Another photo from the Napa trip (Cuvaison Winery), but I didn't take it, Wifey did. Great lines, awesome perspective. Probably the best photo she's ever taken. Taken with a now discontinued Canon SD880IS, it just shows you don't need an expensive camera to take great photos.

Baby Wilhelm Says HiOK, I didn't take this image either, the ultrasound tech did, but I did scan it. Plus, it's the first image we have of our unborn baby's face.
