My Best Photo 2012

by Jarvo J December. 15, 2012 7727 views

Not much of a decision for me to make I think. One outstanding shot in a generally poor year for me.

Actually this is one of only a handful of shots that I've posted where I didn't hit the shutter button myself. I'm still claiming it as mine though. After all, it was my idea, it was me that set the whole thing up and me that got wet. Thanks very much to my two glamourous assistants though, Lin who fired the camera and Ben who burst the balloon for me.

The original set is here [photoblog.com]

With thanks to Malgorzata, Marjorie, Ricky, Gerd and anyone else who's organising “My Best Photo 2012”. Permission granted to use this in the collage.

In my humble opinion, your photos are all "best".
But in all honesty, your choice is really top quality, top creativity, top sharpness, ...
well ... yes, like all your work really ...
