162 “Best Photos of 2010” Blog Posts

Mavericks Surf photo 2010 by Jim M. Goldstein - JMG-Galleries.com

If you’re on a quest to improve your photography one of the best things to do is to take stock of where you’ve been and where you want to go. A couple of years ago on DPS I discussed How to Top Your Best 2008 Photos and the methods discussed there are as relevant today as they were then. A year end review is an incredibly powerful exercise as it shows you where you’ve made improvements, need work and the act of choosing favorites hones your photo editing skills.

As is a tradition on my blog I ask my readers to review their years photos and share their Best Photos of 2010 as an exercise to take stock and improve. This year there was a record turn out of 162 participants who spanned a spectrum of skill levels from hobbyists to professionals and covered a wide variety of genres including landscape, macro, nature, photojournalism, portraiture, event, wildlife, fine art photography and more. I highly recommend visiting each entry as I have. Even after 4 years of running this blog project I’m blown away by the talent of those that take part. It is truly inspirational to see so much creativity and beauty. If your curious to see photos I particularly enjoyed look out for the entries with *** next to them.

If you have not yet taken stock of your 2010 photographs it’s not too late and if you have a best of 2010 photo set on your blog or Flickr be sure to add it in the comments.

    One of my challenges in 2010 was to shoot in a studio again. My first self-assignment resulted in not just an album cover, but all the artwork for the artist. Color me surprised and please! One image that didn't make it to the album, but that I felt very strongly about was this:
