Lisa, at The Creative Exchange asked us to share our favorite capture from 2011.
Well, it only took me about two seconds to choose mine.
This shot of my garden daylily is my favorite.
I liked the light, color, composition, detail, focus, and DOF in this piece.
But, most of all I was happy with the delicate, ethereal feeling captured.
To me, that is what photography is all about -
trying to capture the feeling and "personality" of the subject.
Ansel Adams said, "Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop".
I am thrilled with this one humble capture and it spurs me on...
it is the thrill of the hunt,
the thrill of getting the one
but out there -
that keeps me challenged, clicking, and searching.
Now, I'm searching for winter's beauty, feeling, and mood.
Wishing you joy in the creative process and
a wonderful, productive New Year!!!
