Miss Congeniality


I’ve done it.

Chosen the best photos I’ve taken in 2010.

And written a blog post about it.

But this isn’t it.

This is about the runners up and nominees.  I still love them and they are still special, but they lack a certain special something….

Stop that.  No singing.

Plus I wanted to try out this slideshow dealie on WordPress.

So the shots included here are rated 5-stars by me (Lightroom only has 1-5 stars, no halvsies), but weren’t quite up to being in the top 12.  Roll your mouse into the slideshow itself to stop on any one picture.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It takes a minute or so to view all of them, but I think it’s worth it.  Each is in this group for its own reasons whether they be technical merit, composition, lighting, post-processing, subject or just my emotions and thoughts while taking them.  I’m still proud of them.  One of my goals for 2010 was to be a more deliberate and thoughtful photographer.  Some of these shots show that clearly.  Some are more spontaneous images that show a different aspect of my skill which I have to say has improved since 2009.

Let me know what you think.

I’ll post my top 12 later on.
