    The present.
    Spring: Center Church on the New Haven (Connecticut) Green. This was taken from the highest window above the belfry in North church. EP3 with 9-18mm @ 9mm

    p1259076338-5.

    Summer: Lake Champlain, Vermont. Colchester Point, where we usually take a camp for a week in August. KVG did not specify that it HAD to be Mu43... this is my Lumix FZ150. I just love the colors this camera renders.

    Autumn: I have campaigned this a little here, so this should be familiar. A small lake near to where I live. Stopped one morning this fall when I knew the clouds, colors and the mist might yield a keeper. EP3 with Lumix 7-14mm @ 7mm.

    p1216077148-5.

    I almost didn't participate in this thread just because I didn't think I could possibly narrow down 3 favorites :biggrin:

    These are my 3 favorite shots of 2012, taken with m4/3 - not necessarily my most popular or even my best work maybe, but the ones I like best. Most interesting to me was that while there were a handful others that I could have chosen equally, a large percentage of my absolute favorites are all B&W shots.

    GX1 + 12mm f/2.0

    Here are 3 of mine (in no particular order):

    1. Sunrise in Lancaster County, PA


    2. Fly Fishing on the Schroon River, Adirondack Park, NY


    3. OK - so this one's heavily photoshopped - but I like it anyway because it involved the use of fill flash which I was trying for the first time.

    Here are my 3.

    1. This photo was taken at Paris’s Grand Palais, Paris during the Daniel Buren color project.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/73403162@N00/8112130248/" title="P1020097-Edit-Edit.jpg by Ehud Lavon, on Flickr"> 8112130248_1b1dd3190c_b. "1024" height="768" alt="P1020097-Edit-Edit.jpg"></a>

    2. this one was hard to take because of the low light condition.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ehudlavon/8324629019/" title="P1020171 by Ehud Lavon, on Flickr"> 8324629019_74343b0e14_b. "1024" height="834" alt="P1020171"></a>

    3. I took this one with the sun in front of me. In the editing I have succeded to remove the milky cast from the photo.

    Livnius, I don't like "bird pictures" but that picture of a bird is amazing.

    This is an awesome thread. Amazing work from everyone! We should do this every month (Your best shots of January, etc) because I'm having a hard time narrowing down a whole years worth of photos to three!

    1. I really like this because it combines both of my passions. I love action photography and I was really proud of myself for this capture. Did I mention it's a self portrait?

    2. I love macro photography. This was a result of patience, skill, and luck.

    3. I'm an artist.

    There's a similar thread over on Serious Compacts, so maybe I'll limit myself to three m43 shots here and three shots from other gear over there. I couldn't possibly pick three from the whole year, but these are the three that caught my eye today - tomorrow it might be another three altogether...

    I did a lot of non-street work with m43 this year, but I use it a LOT for street shooting (the OMD and EPL5 are as good as it gets for my style of street photography, and the EPL3 wasn't far behind), so here are two New York City street shots with the 12mm and one candid family portrait type of shot of my older sis with the 75mm.

    All my pictures were taken in Montréal, Canada.


    I like the simple lines and (of course) the man on this photo.

    This photo was taken during a snow storm.

    Sadly, I didn't get my E-PM2 until the last three weeks or so of the year, so these are all shot with my E-PL2. It definitely served me well, though!
