If I had to choose, this exposure taken in April this year during my stay in Rome. It hangs above my bed printed at 36x24.

Vatican Fountain.

//edit - My colour profiles are all messed up and this looks a lot yellower than the brown/sepia it prints & views on my screen as.

I was pretty proud of this one of the San Jacinto monument outside of Houston.

That is really tough... I have two that rate in my favorite ever and not sure I can completely choose between them.
This one is currently my favorite

But it replaced THIS (external link)

This one is hilarious to me. It seems like, only looking at the body and wings, its an overstuffed turkey...face looks like my cat's when I hit it with a blast from the kitchen sink's spray hose...

Sadly it may still be on my external HDD. Lovely shots people, I'll have to go find mine.

It's impossible for me to pick one photograph of mine that I could definitively say is my 'best' or my 'favourite'.

However - my preferred genre is candid portraiture/street, and this one has become a bit of a signature piece for me. To me, it speaks of childhood emotions, solitude, future and past.

Captured during a festival (candid). The child was playing hide-and-seek with a few other kids. He drifted off into another world and just sat there, thinking about things only he knows.

So,... it was a hard choice, but since the question is "favorite" as opposed to "best" I went with this one as I was proud of it;

There is a story behind it's being a favorite;

It's the memory :), these twins at 11,000 feet in Colorado, from the last trip to the mountains that I'll ever take. :(

I am in awe of the talent showcased here. Spectacular everyone.

Tough pick between my two passions, astrophotography and birds.

For degree of difficulty I chose this one first.

Fish Hooks

This makes me hate you more than anyone. I so want to get into astrophotography but location location location. Also that green stuff that doesn't grow on trees.

Man that's b-e-a-utiful!
