My Top Photos of 2011

2011 was an odd year… Photographically it seemed there was steady improvement and an increase in a couple higher paying gigs, but it seemed that I was not *pushing* myself as hard as in the past.  This, will have to be rectified as the next post will cover my favorite photographs from other photographers over the past year I’ve been following who have brought their game.

I am not going to rank these images, but rather will talk about them in chronological order and explain why each one of them has made it into my years top images.  Also, every year like this one, Jim Goldstein has a Best of Photography call where our photo peeps submit their best work and Jim compiles it in a single post.  Its a great opportunity to catch up on the photography of a wide variety of people, particularly with an interest in landscape photography, so you have until January 7th to get your work in.

Onto the photographs…

 

 


The year started with a repeat photo gig down in Las Vegas that I’ve been going to in January for the past couple of years.  That gig has so far not produced any images I am particularly fond of, but they have been keeping me in camera gear and end up generating lots of traffic for Jonesblog.  At any rate, I figured that I’d try and piggyback a personal project to photograph some pilots and their aircraft right before being shipped off to patrol the skies over Afghanistan.  Everything was going swimmingly well and I showed up on base with clearances and appropriate passes only to find out that the Air Force had changed their schedule and my shoot would not happen.  I consoled myself with a little spot where the pilots were making low passes that were close enough that the shockwave of air moving over the planes shook me at the same time as you could feel the heat from the exhaust mixing with the cooling desert night.  This was one of the photographs that emerged.  I liked the action and drama from this shot.

 

 


This image of a cortical neuron was made while trying out a new approach for meso-scale connectomics.  There is nothing really inherently new about the algorithm or how the data was processed, but the simple technique application could help out groups that are looking to track neuronal connections over larger distances.  At any rate, the approach generated these beautiful images that really reminded me of charcoal and paper drawings, though this is optical microscopy data that has been processed to some degree to render the image.

 

 


This image was made while working on a manuscript that ended up being published on the cover of the Journal of Comparative Neurology.  Again, this is not strictly a single photograph, but a photographic composite of  a number of separate images that are computationally combined to create a composite image that reflects the concentration of small molecules in cells or tissues.  The color of this image as well as the amorphous forms deliberately blurred, lend a sort of dreamy quality to the image.

 

 


One of the photographic themes I like to play with is macro photography.  I’ve yet to make any money from *any* of my macro photography, but this one was the best macro shots of the year.  This image is a focus stacked shot composed of 3 separate exposures stacked to reveal more depth of field.  If I can make a few more of these, there may be a sale in one of the macro shots yet…  I liked the even illumination (ring flash), the detail in the leaf and body of the fly.

 

 


This shot is here because it represents a sea change in photography.  This shot illustrated to me that photography was getting ready to go through another revolution.  I’ve had a few significant photographic changes in my life starting with a Kodak Brownie Box camera, followed by my first SLR then my first digital camera, an Apple Quicktake (deserves its own Jonesblog post sometime), followed by the first digital SLR of mine that produced images I was really proud of, a Canon 20d followed by my first “pro” digital SLR.  Though what makes this image remarkable to me is that its a very good image produced by a small sensor in an iPhone and not a dedicated camera.  I had started to integrate imagery from this blog made with the iPhone a little while ago, but recent revisions of the iPhone have made the imagery rather impressive for the sensor size.  On top of that, while this image is literally straight out of the iPhone camera with no post-processing, the options for controlling that sensor with software signal to me, where photography is going in the future.  Even more compelling from a photojournalism perspective, this image was taken and uploaded immediately to Jonesblog within minutes of it being made.  The combination of good quality imaging sensors with communications devices mean instant communication of imagery from anywhere on the planet a cell tower data link can be achieved.  I liked the atmosphere in this image, a combination of verdant green signifying hope, prosperity and bounty combined with the foreboding sky and dilapidated farm house giving a sense of post apocalyptic abandon….

 

 


This shot was my favorite portrait of the year.  I’ve shot a few portraits, most of which have not appeared here, but a couple shots of colleagues have made it.  That said, its my favorite of the year, not only because it features my favorite person on the planet, but also because of the casual informality of it.  Technically, I was really, really happy with the shot, but not because every detail was planned out as I was shooting something completely different and for this shot, casually picked up the camera and made the shot, not really expecting anything to come of it.

 

 


Technically, this shot leaves much to be desired, but the challenges of getting the shot were considerable.  It was the first Space Shuttle landing that I’d ever attended and that inexperience combined with some misinformation that the Shuttle would be landing after sunrise, the speed that it landed, the pre-dawn light (or lack thereof) and absolutely lousy press viewing area made for a very small window where images could have been captured.  The action, appeals to me here though the blur on the parachute and high ISO noise is not quite what I had in mind…  That said, its a historical image as it was the absolute last Space Shuttle landing ever and it somehow works for me.

 

 


This morning shot of the Bonneville Salt Flats was made during Speed Week, a time with lots of race cars out on the salt.  But this image shows the desolate, yet fragile nature of the environment out there.  There is something about the desert that has always appealed to me.  The desolation, the stark beauty and *silence*…  Though during Speed Week, there is not much that is silent out on the salt as the race cars engines echo across the barren salt flats during their high speed runs down remarkably flat surfaces.  This particular image had remarkable color contrast (no polarizer on this particular shot.  The sun was just in the right place) with the sky against the salt floor of the basin.

 

 


This grey heron (Ardea cinerea) seen in Baden Baden, Germany on the Lichtentaler Allee  was one of the better quality bird shots I’ve been able to manage with the relatively short lenses in my bag.  As this bird *slowly* walked up through the stream, he stopped in a beam of light that illuminated this grey heron against a very dark background, making the shot.

 

 


This shot of the Strasbourg Cathedral was made the evening of  a very quick, stop in Strasbourg, France a few months ago.  The skies had just cleared, going from grey to blue as the evening sun was starting to throw its light against the cathedral.  I had hoped for a decent shot of the Cathedral with evening light, but had almost given up hope just 30 minutes before.

 

 


This shot from the Lockheed C-130J production line was made  during a recent visit to the Lockheed Martin plant in Georgia.  The aircraft are made from a variety of materials that have different color anti-corrosion paints and epoxies as well as coatings and materials that it makes for a vibrant palate that is forever hidden at the next step in the assembly line, paint.  After painting, these aircraft are made to blend in to their surrounding environments with all grey or green color schemes.

 

 

These shots of the last lunar eclipse of 2011 were made from the Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City as the moon set against a hazy morning sky.  This was my first attempt at capturing imagery from an eclipse and hope the next one will be in a warmer season.

 

 

Update: Here is Jim Goldstein’s list:

From Jim Goldstein:

“This year we had an amazing turn out for the Best Photos of 2011 blog project with 289 entries, topping the results for best photos of 2010,  best photos of 2009best photos of 2008 and best photos of 2007! Participants 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. There are likely many names you’ll recognize below and many others you won’t. I highly recommend visiting each entry as I have. Even after 5 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 personally enjoyed look out for the entries with *** next to them.”

  1. Great recap. Happy 2012!

  2. Great write up !

  3. These are really beautiful. I covet some for backgrounds… do you have larger-resolution versions available (specifically time and space, salt flats, and strasbourg)?

    • Hey Mike,

      Thanks. I typically only make 600pixel wide images available on Jonesblog. Its too often that I already see images being used online without permission, licensing, etc… and having higher resolution images here would only make that issue worse. I do violate that rule from time to time however…
