Share your best photos from 2014

Last year I invited you to share your best photos taken in 2013. Quite a few of my friends took part in that small project and so as current year is slowly coming to an end I decided to start another edition. I hope this year edition will be even better! With more participants and some really great photos!
If you would like to be part of this year’s project, simply send me the links (in comments to this post) to 2 of your best photos and I will share them on my blog on 14th of January 2015. Additionally it would be good if you could email me those images (watermarked if you want) resized to 900px on longer side.

It doesn’t matter whether you are pro or amateur – you will be featured on my blog. If there will be too many photos I will share them in a few turns but I will share all of them.

Some conditions that must be met:

  • The photos should be taken in 2014 (or at least be edited in 2014),
  • The photos must have at least 900px on the longer side,
  • Please provide the link to your page (and/or Facebook profile, 500px profile, SmugMug etc.) as well as the name under which you would like to be credited. You can also write short bio that I will put next to your photos.
  • Links to photos must be sent in the comments under this post,
  • You have to provide links to exactly 2 photos,
  • Please send both photos resized to 900px on longer size to tomanw@gmail.com with subject “Best of 2014”. I will use the photos only to embed them in the post. They can be watermarked of course. If you can’t or don’t want to send the photos – that’s fine 🙂 It would just make my life a little bit easier but it’s not necessary.

Also please share this post with your friends – the more photos, the better 🙂 

Daily photo – Colourful sunrise

Today I would like to share old HDR image I took in 2012 on Fuerteventura. I really like reflection in that puddle as I think it adds a lot of interest to this sunrise image.
If you would like to learn how to create HDR photos yourself, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial which will guide you thru the process – from taking photos to post-processing them on your computer.
