Mod note: we had two similar threads; you can post 5 or 13 images here, with or without text; your choice. Apologies for any confusion.

Wow! I can't find anyone having started this. Please let me know if I'm wrong. I'm eager to see everyone's best. These are my favorites. 2019 was a prolific year so selecting favorites was quite difficult. My year began with Crdome’s Minimally Magical Mystery Trip. Along the way I visited @Web-Betty, @deepaqua, @CharlieL, and @Bif. That was quite a thrill.

In July I explored the the possibility of relocating to Albuquerque. I have done so and am looking forward to its infinite photographic opportunities in the new year.

After seeing so many YouTube videos and Articles of Top 10 this and Top 10 that ... let's make it 13 of YOUR favorite picture that you made in 2019, it doesn't have to be the best images just the ones you love the most, even add a bit of background for why you love it so much. I was thinking 2 pictures for each major type of photography: landscape, action, wildlife, portrait, street photography, macro, and one extra bonus picture of odd type.

For me, 2019 was the year of wildlife photography, where I have dipped my toes here and there in 2018 but since getting the Panasonic Leica 50-200mm f 2.8-4 it feels like Ia forgot I love Landscape and Macro photography. But there will be a mixture of both:

One of my first favorites of 2019, it was a foggy wintery morning and I was so mesmerized by the blue-tinted fog I found this spot (on my way from work) where the clouds were breaking up and you could barely see further than 20 meters.

Going to work, right across my entrance door, the hair cutting was going on through a snow blizzard, just love the stillness of the inside with the chaos of the outside.

It's not often to see snow in South West of UK, less so heavy snow like the blizzard named Beast from the East. I love this picture because it shows quite a common street un very unusual setting, I have this multi-shot panorama printed and displayed at a local pub just up this road.

While it's typical to have heavy clouds, lots of cloud coverage and rain in England I am still mesmerized by some of the views one can get with a bit of luck and waking up very early in the morning to climb up a big hill.

My first close encounter with a deer, after looking for them for 2 weeks, and an adorable one at that who didn't seem to care much of the tree branch pressing on its head, though the encounter didn't last long it was wonderful to be within 10 meters of them.

The judge might not have liked the solar covers from a farm on the left side but there's nothing I can do about that and for me it doesn't ruin the beautiful sunset I got to see right at the end of August.

While going back home from work I have noticed a big bird flying quite low on a field on the side of the road and I was curious what it was doing ... for someone who lived in big cities most of my life I have little experience first hand with wildlife ... and I was so taken when I saw this majestic bird of prey hovering mid-air like a helicopter and searching for prey below, swooping lower and lower until it would dive-bomb into the tall grass field.

This was the closest I have ever been to such a big bird, it was standing right next to its kill, a bunny on the right side.

I don't do often enough street photography but I love it when I get opportunities out of the blue, no matter the condition, doing everything for our best friends :)

First time experiencing the Atlantic Ocean from the British side, a very beautiful opportunity for landscape images, even if the light was not very attractive or helpful.

Just about to miss this opportunity, noticing the small chicks with the corner of my eye I noticed it was an entire family of 5 with 3 chicks ... very loud little ones shouting constantly for food, not even bothered by my presence. So much room service.

I had shared this image here before, one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced was a baby fox (no bigger than my shoes put on top of each other) coming out of tall reeds looking for food and while ignoring me (but I was still noticed) it came to a few meters in front of me. I was so surprised I was mostly shocked into having my finger stuck on the shutter. I didn't even notice the heavy damage of the right eye until I got home and boosted the shadows of the RAW files.

It's not easy to make multi-shot panoramas of wildlife but when it works the results are so beautiful, I just love the simplicity and depth the images has in my opinion, a permanent print on my walls for sure (like the one above).

I am hoping that 2020 will come with even more and better wildlife images as well as going back to my first love, landscapes. And now that I have activated an Instagram account I will share more pictures and more often.

My absolute favorite image I captured this year. Captured on my way back to the car at Seven Islands State Birding Park. It makes for a wonderful print.

My second favorite. This storm was breaking up over the lake. A stitch captured with the Super Takumar28 3.5. I feel like it is a Miyazaki painted animation cell.

A couple of black and whites captured on different trips to Nashville. I like the combination of architecture, texture, and portrait. The first captured with the Super Takumar 50 1.4, the second with the Leica Elmarit-R 28 2.8

I don't share family portraits, but these are the best portraits I took this year. Both on a college visit with my son to Portland, Oregon. The first is my son sitting on the shore of Puget Sound, the second is of my cousin and my son walking toward Haystack Rock.

This image shot up to being my most popular image on Flickr. Interestingly enough, it was shot with the 14-150ii and is a SOOC jpeg shot using the Sunset Scene mode. Sometimes you just have to let the camera do its thing.

A couple of insect shots, nice and sharp with great color. These always impress me when I go back to them. The bee was captured with the Leica Macro-Elmar-R 100 4 (helicoid).

It was very difficult to pick my favourite 13. Most of my photography is landscapes but i did manage to mix it up a little.

I have to start with a couple of shots from my local reservoir. It's only 20mins from home and it is where i go get away from it all and chill out.

This is one that i got from a day at Chester Zoo. I really like this one but it saddens me to think that they will one day be gone from the wild. Hopefully not in my lifetime.

I had to include a sunrise shot. I'm 54 years old and this year was the first time i saw the sun break the horizon. One of a few first for me thanks to photography. I took my daughter to the same place this week to see it for the first time.

My final image might not be my favourite but it is an iconic shot that a lot of photographers go to Ladybower Reservoir for. It's a shot i wanted to get for myself and it took me four or five attempts over several months to get. Again its another shot that i got when i skived off work. Just to let you know I'm not work shy. I've worked all my life but if I'm not needed in work now i don't go in. I class myself as semi retired :biggrin:

Thank you so much for sharing, I didn't expect people to jump in since it's not easy to pick favorites. Though 13 is a lot easier than 2 to 5 pictures :)
You guys shared beautiful pictures and it made me feel wonderful seeing them.

Happy New Year and I wish you even more beautiful pictures this year.

Your pictures are amazing, you have such beautiful and cute children. You gave a lot of talent for portrait photography (but that's not saying much from someone who doesn't have that level of skill :p ). Thank you for sharing your wonderful year.

I work from home, and we have a couple of other home-based businesses, so I spent 99% of last year within 30 miles of the house, and probably 80% of that time actually at home. With a slew of kids, dogs, cats and chickens to boot, it means most of my photography this year was in the garden. So here are my 13 for the year, mostly taken with a G6, typically attached to the 30mm Panny.

I obviously need to get out more, but with daughter no.4 on the tennis tournament trail with Mrs Macroramphosis much of the year, it's hard to get away.....so if you're not into insects, my sincere apologies :D

Amazing captures everyone, wow! Sorry for being a little late to this party 🙂

Let's start with a couple of shots from our trip to Le Provence and Iceland this past summer. The first photo is probably my 2019 favorite. We came upon this scene at a cherry festival in a small town. A local shoe-shop had creatively marked a path to their shop on the street.

I have a 12x18 print of this poppies shot mounted in my living room. Also in Le Provence.

The next shot is a candid of my youngest son in a small town. Same trip.

When in France you cannot overlook the many fortifications and castles. I quite like this shot

Ok, moving on to a couple of Iceland shots. Definitely a location where I will return with more time for photography!

In 2019 I discovered portrait photo shoots. I often use my Pen F and that amazing monochrome mode 2. A couple of examples below

I even got my wife to pose for me for a blossom shoot. Lots of fun!

I will end with a shot of Delicate Arch in Utah. Beautiful place to visit.
