289 “Best Photos of 2011″ Blog Posts

Milky Way Over Death Valley

At the conclusion of every year I’ve adopted the tradition of reviewing my year in photos, picking my 10 best photos and evaluating those that were near misses. This exercise is something I’ve written about on DPS in  How to Top Your Best 2008 Photos and Year In Review: 6 More Ways to Top Your Best Photos and is something I consider to be critical to my success and growth as a photographer. On my blog I encourage my readers to adopt this exercise and to share their results in my annual Best of Photos blog project. In addition to benefiting from the underlying effort of evaluating your work and identifying areas of growth, accessing a list of best work by other photographers provides a spring of inspiration to launch participants into the new year.

Rendezvous - Racetrack, Death Valley National Park

Participants in this years “Best Photos of 2011″ blog project spanned a spectrum of skill levels from hobbyists to professionals and covered a wide variety of genres. There are likely many names you’ll recognize below and many others you won’t. I highly recommend visiting each entry as I have. Even after 5 years of running this blog project I’m blown away by the talent and creativity of those that take part. It is truly inspirational to see so much creativity and beauty. If your curious to see photos I personally enjoyed look out for the entries with *** next to them.

If you have not yet taken stock of your 2011 photographs, it’s not too late. Share your best of 2011 photo sets from your blog, Flickr, 500px, Google+ or Facebook by adding a link in the comments below.

    So many to choose from – some are stunning!!! Here’s my comparatively tame efforts – Street Life with the yin & yang of how to use a Starbuck’s cup is my particular favourite...speaks volumes, especially in these belt-tightening times.
