December is winding down, as is 2014, which means It is time for Larry and I to start picking our favorite photos of this past year. That is a whole lot of photos for us to scroll through as we smile at the “good ones” and groan and shutter at the the “weak ones” that we are a bit embarrassed to have had published for the world to see.
So, since I have begun wading through all of my photos, your photo challenge (if you choose to accept it of course) is to show me your favorite photo that you shot in 2014.
You know you have that one shot, that one AMAZING shot that you captured with your camera or phone and immediately uploaded it to Instagram/Facebook for the world to see.
Or maybe you have 5 shots that you love equally but for varying reasons you just can’t pick one above the rest…fine then show me your top 5 shots of the year. But you may only upload or email me 5 submissions. Trust me, I know it’s tough to edit down a year’s worth of photos…it takes Larry and I weeks to get our picks down from 3,869 (yes that is what my Published photo count is thus far this year) down to 40, and then to only 5 for the print edition.
This is a shot of my contact sheet…I still have to lose 6 photos to get to the 40 shot slideshow limit:
So your rules are:
PHOTO MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN 2014! (And hey, you still have a few weeks to shoot one that beats all the others so get out there and get snapping!)
Photos that have been chosen as “stand-outs” earlier in the year are NOT allowed in your 5 favorites.
DEADLINE will be January 2nd.
You can use that handy “Upload Photo Challenge Pix” link on the right side of this page or feel free to email me your entries : firstname.lastname@example.org. IF YOU DO USE THE HANDY UPLOADER, Please remember to choose the “Kitsap Frames Challenge” channel so I know which uploaded photos are for this challenge.
Chosen Stand-outs will be published in the January 11th. print edition of the Kitsap Sun.
Here are links to Larry and I’s best of 2013 slideshows from last year…just to get you thinking:
