    Wow where did the year go? I remember starting this last January... so let's see what everyone's been up to in this new year! Post your five favorite pics taken last month.

    I have two projects running simultaneously. My 365 project and a new 52 week self portrait project I joined this year. These two keep me very productive and shooting. I highly recommend doing some sort of project like that if you want to keep motivated. :)

    Kristi great shot of the Snowy Owl... they are beautiful creatures. I remember seeing a pair on a snowy New Jersey day while hiking many years ago, it was something that stayed in my memory. Great shots from everyone so far.

    Geese and Sea Lions

    Here are mine. Mostly fooling around with the 50-200 trying to get Canada Geese taking off, and one underwater shot of a California Sea Lion. The sea lion dive was just insane. They were dozens of them and they were all over us, pulling our fins and mouthing our arms, legs etc.

    Not a very productive month being an extremely cold and snowy month here in Iowa.

    While babysitting my niece she passed out watching her favorite show.

    Just messing around one day took a shot of the trees on the hill behind the house.

    I think skies like these make for nice B&W shots.

    BW Sky-4 by woody112704, on Flickr

    On the Mu-43 sister site Serious Compacts they had a challenge going on for impression shots. So I played with a few shots I made and did this in Color Efex4. I had a lot of fun making the images.

    I'm not sure how many people like the Fuji Velvia 50 look but I really like it and I found a tutorial that can get you close to the way it looks. So I tried it out, not really the best shot to show the look but it gave a nice blue to the sky. Will be better when we start getting more color this spring.

    Haha I love #3 and I'm assuming its a woman but it doesn't really matter either way. I love the contrast of her anger and flipping off the person in the truck and the fact that she has a hello kitty backpack on. Struck me as very funny.

    Trying to keep up! 5 Favorites for January 2014!

    Stunning ... the talent is amazing.

    Here are my 5 favs for January ... it was slow photo month :)

    One of my favorite architectural subjects - Perimeter Institute -
    Waterloo_Park_Jan_25_2014_%2831_of_45%29_HDR-L.

    Same Building .. different face
    Waterloo_Park_Jan_25_2014_%2828_of_45%29_HDR-L.

    and again, same building and yet another face
    Waterloo_Park_Jan_25_2014_%2819_of_45%29_HDR-L.

    Changing it up ... finally... The Grist Mill in Waterloo Park
    Walk_Walterloo_Park_Jan_2014_%2840_of_48%29_HDR-L.

    and lunch with my much better half :)
    Watami_Sushi_Jan2014_%2832_of_37%29_HDR-L.

    Emptysensor and PhilS, I like that flickr embed. Is that a new thing, and do I need to switch to the new flickr to do it?
