This week we finished 2009, and with it, our Best of 2008 assignment. Where can we even begin. In the last year, we saw not only our membership numbers grow, but also our members skills grow. What follows is our picks for the Best of 2008 assignment.
Our winner was jbury for the timeless black and white shot of Mt Jefferson. Wulf said that it “stood out majestically” and that it could have been taken 80 years ago or today, and the subject is enduring. Saralonde said that it had a timeless quality that reminded her of Ansel Adams. Well done jbury because thanks to Crumpler Australia you have won a 5 Million Dollar Home Camera Bag.
Our first runner up was EllenK for her picture of one of her grand-daughter’s classmates, highlighted by unbelievable natural light in a 100 year old one room school house. The way that the light shone through the window highlighting one student, we couldn’t help but appreciate this image.
And last, but not least, M3R‘s 30 second exposure of Bromo Mountain couldn’t help but catch our eye with the almost alien landscape. We were especially drawn in by the soft, silky fog and the twinkling stars.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the assignments in 2008. We have had some wonderful entries from both old and new members. Keep them coming because we have a lot of exciting assignments planned for the new year. In fact, we’ve already started our newest assignment, Crumpler Australia. In order to be eligible for the mini contest, there are a few rules. First, your image must have been taken between 24 December 2008 – 7 January 2009. Next, your post must include the words “Assignment: Fresh” and the date that the photo was taken in order for it to count. And last, but not least, your EXIF should be intact. Our next assignment with be “Dreams” so start dreaming up those ideas.
