Well, I have been going back and forth on wether or not to post some photos for the contest but then I decided that I should probably post them since they aren't doing any good on my hard drive not being seen. Here are my favorite photos of 2010 that didn't get published. Enjoy!

digg311 12-31-2010 1:03 AM

I'm just getting started with photography... but I'll throw this one in...

and while it may not be the best photo ever, I'm obligated to post this one of my brand new baby boy...

wakedad33 12-31-2010 7:48 AM

Joe it's still Dec. 31st, you still have until midnight tonight. Knowing you, I just thought you would wait until 11:59 to post:D;)

I love the look of those shots!

One of these days could you share your PP techniques?

wakesurf12 12-31-2010 5:44 PM

Thanks Rich! Glad you like them. As far as PPing goes. It's pretty simple. Import into computer, minor contrast bump, export.

wakesurf12 12-31-2010 5:46 PM

P.S. Rich! Love your two as well! Congrats on the kid!

Maybe it's the lighting, those have a really nice non digital look to them, especially #1. Which body are you using?

damn....lots of good shots above.

wakesurf12 01-01-2011 3:11 PM

Thanks! I am currently using a Nikon D700, yet I recently grabbed a D7000 for the video which seems to be working better than I expected. Both of these photos had a lot of things that had to come together perfectly in order for them to happen. Lighting, timing, and riding. As well as chase boat driving and people to hold strobes etc. Definitely two of my most memorable shoots of the year.

wakedad33 01-01-2011 5:21 PM

Damn, some really good shots, thanks for playing. Voting is open, vote for your 3 favorite shots, list them as 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Voting will close at midnight Jan. 10, 201

# 2 Ryan Taylor's first shot.

#3 Joe's second shot.

Rich (digg311) I really like your first shot.

wakedad33 01-05-2011 7:50 PM

This was tough just getting down to 6.

1. Scott a. Bridge shot. Like- Composition, B&W, overall great shot.
2. Ryan Taylor rail shot. Like - Lighting, composition, sharp. Dope press.
3. Riley 1st shot. Like - Lighting, overall feel, sickshot.

Honorable mention (my next 3 favorites)
Walt's water truck. I love long exposure light painting.
Rich Dykmans Ski shot. Sharp, sharp, sharp.
Peter Twelker's 2nd shot. Hard to get a good into the sun shot, well done.

Lot's of great shots, thanks for playing.


JJ 01-05-2011 8:51 PM

Tough to pick a top three, but here's what I narrowed mine to:

1. Scott a.- 1st shot
2. Ryan T.- 1st shot
3. Walt- 1st shot

wakesurf12 01-05-2011 9:18 PM

1. Peter T's top one
2. J Jakober's Glass shot!!!
3. Riley's Top one.

digg311 01-05-2011 9:59 PM

It's kind of an apples/oranges thing for me... just because they're all such different subject matter. But...

1. Ryan T. - 1st shot - Rail
2. Walt - shot 1 - Car
3. Riley - shot 1 - Winchin'

Honorable mention for me... Jakobers explosives! and Rich's ski shot. (Damn dude, that is sharp focus!)

Next year, I'ma try to put up a little more of a fight with my submissions. Great work guys!!

dakid 01-05-2011 10:50 PM

scott a's 1st shot -hard for one to not pick this shot...it was film!

ryan t's 1st shot

downfortheride 01-06-2011 10:14 AM

gravity 01-06-2011 9:33 PM

steezyshots 01-07-2011 9:07 AM

Ryan T 2nd Shot, I know A LOT had to come together to get that! Shooting Dubs ain't as easy as it seems ad 2 flashes into that and that was some work.

Walt 1st Shot Like how raw it looks

Joe's Basketball shot like the look of it

scott_a 01-10-2011 1:47 AM
