My favorite because it captures the mood. Hot coffee at Limestone, after a chilly November photo walkabout.

I have 3 favourite photos from this year.


Taken when we stayed at the Park Hyatt Tokyo (bucket list of mine)


My favourite B&W photo taken this year in Lake Louise


One of the hundreds photos taken of our daughter who was born this year.
The Continous Eye-AF on the Sony mirrorless cameras makes capturing the little one a lot easier.

This photo was on the first roll of film I shot with the Ansco 6x6cm folding camera that my aunt gave me just before she died.

I picked this one because I have mainly been a color photographer. I was determined to photograph in B & W during 2018. I think I will continue into & beyond 2019 photographing in B&W.

Here's one from this year's SantaCon in San Francisco. It's my favorite image from this year because it's the most surreal straight capture I've ever made.

This photo is my favourite of the year, Lynn, because it was the limitation of having a "slow" lens in a sports environment in amongst the trees on an overcast day that lead to a result that I really like. Plus, it shows how good a Leica M viewfinder with no blackout and no lag can be at following action. And last and importantly, it's my son on the bicycle.

Both of my two favorite images from 2018 were taken at Glacier National Park, a great location for photography. I picked the first one because it captures well the mood of the solitary fisherman with the low hanging clouds and the reflected peak behind him. I selected the second one because it's a great example of the versatility of the Fuji 16-55 lens, which is the only lens I had on me at the time. I had just finished a strenuous hike on Hidden Lake Trail which starts at Logan Pass when I saw the lake for which the trail is named.

It was a beautiful morning in Colorful Colorado. I rarely get out before sunrise, but was richly rewarded this day. Taken during a long road trip on a lonely road west of Walsenburg, CO.

I think this was the very last frame on a roll of Svema Color 125 that I shot for Red Oktober. GerryM was helping me, and when we took this photo, everything just worked out perfectly. I couldn't really get my eye on the viewfinder, so I didn't really know if the buildings in the background were getting cut off or not.

Yes, this one is extraordinary. Stephen Shore would have been happy to have taken this one. The colour is wonderful and the light but the birds and bonnet (hood, sorry) take it to another level.

Thanks Murray. At the time of shooting it was more like desperation, so I was delighted when I developed the film.

This is my favourite. Taken a year ago today at the Neck, Saunders Island, in the Falklands.
It is on the other side of the world from where I live, but my young family were visiting my birth mum where she now lives. The wilderness and wildlife was spectacular and my mum was thrilled to show her grandchildren her side of the planet.

For me it was a return to a cliff face I had perched on 15 years previously. This time I had my Sony A7 and the Zeiss Batis 18mm lens - these black browned albatross have wingspans over 2m, and it was truly special to be able to be so close.

What a splendid group of pictures. I like the stories too!

My favorite of '18 is less about the image and more about the experience. This is from my first try with slide film from a medium format camera, just poking around the neighborhood. I have fond memories of making 35mm slides and holding them up to the sky when I was younger but hadn't made them in years due to the expense. But with easy to use e-6 home developing kits available I can develop them myself now for a more reasonable cost. And holding larger slides up to the sky just makes my day.

:-)

Thank you very much for this great thread Lynn!

There are so GREAT pictures... it's a big pleasure to read/see it.

Here you have the one I have selected to this thread. I made this portrait one week ago.

I love this portrait because it is so special for me to see my wife and my daughter so happy. Maybe (surely) I have some photographs that are "better" technically, or maybe more interesting for people that isn't from my family... but today I feel this portrait is the best picture I made in 2018.

I like that portrait too. I love the off center with the square format (plus there is a lot of warmth in this image). Your daughter and I have the same style glasses.

My sister-in-law Dolores and her new daughter-in-law Tammi. Besides my wife, Dolores is the most favorite woman in my life, and I think that this photo captures her spirit perfectly.

2018 has been a 100% film photographic year to me..
in the midst of being the only radiologist in a small hospital ..

I had many opportunity to travel arround Indonesia .. also to documented many backstage concerts, theaters and Asian Games 2018 ...

I ussualy dont post commercial jobs here (its on my Ig for the clients)..
for RFF, I ll choose my 2 fave travelling wandering arround photos for 2018.. one in Color and one in BW ...

The color one is taken in Bromo Mountain.. in a collosal Art Show...
I took portrait of one dancer with my Rolleiflex 3.5F and Kodak Ektar 100

Red Portrait by William Jusuf, on Flickr



The BW frame is taken in Lasem, old chinese javanese city in Central Java Indonesia....

This is an old Batik Factory .. ussualy workers are painting and dying Batik under The Trembesi Trees... Since I visit in public holiday time.. No workers arround.. Just some old Bicycles... I ask my film photographer fellow to sit under the tree .. as a model scale

Tree of Life by William Jusuf, on Flickr


Took this again with Rolleiflex 3.5F and RPX 400 with Rodinal

Have a Great 2019 to all

Sincerely

Probably this one, from November on a trip to Japan. This was in taken in Osaka, off Dotonburi street.



It's my favourite because it takes me back there. And it was the first time I'd used my Yashica 635 at night. Worked extremely well! Shot with Fuji Pro 400H.

After not touching a camera for 4 years, in 2018 was the time to return to photography.

One of the first shots of 2018, remind me something I should not forget:
photographs are everywhere.

I'd have to say this one;


Living History Weekend in the Memorial Museum Passchendaele
Kodak Auto Graflex, Ross 7-1/4" Xpress lens, Fomapan 100

Because taking historical images with 100-year-old cameras is fun.

Probably this one, an "accidental" HDR.

The light was dimming so for some reason I set the camera to auto-bracket so I would be more likely to nail the exposure.

When I got home and looked at them, I figured what the {expletive} and tried loading them into Luminance HDR to see what would happen, and it "worked", or so I think.

2018 was a slow year for me photographically. Too many other things going on. I do have a self-portrait project going on, and this one is from that.
