First some amazing shots here and even the personal ones with backstories made me glow.

Had a hard time deciding so chose my top three

1. This is when I knew I was more than a point and shooter, made the tour bus driver reverse back along the road till I got the shot lined up. Couldn't believe I was the only one who was taking this shot.

2. All these shots were taken on holiday in Kenya, had the 7D a few days before I flew out so learning on the job. Just love this shot.

3. This was perhaps the greatest moment of my life. Having just watched this lion at a waterhole we parked up next to a rock. I am in the front of a land rover with the roof off and the window open. The lion walked over to the rock and sat down so close to us I could have leant out the window and touched it. He looked right at me as he sat down, I was so excited I could hardly breath. Took lots of photo's but this is perhaps my all time favourite.

Like most of you I can't just pick one picture. These were taken at Thunder Over Louisville with my 7D which I had literally bought that week and I'm so glad I didn't wait.

Was out very early one morning with the camera (after dropping people off at the airport for a 7am flight) so I happened to catch the dawn.

It gave me absolutely perfect light for the monument but the shot was made so much better when the person sat down in mid frame - talk about right place and right time!

I still don’t have my best photo yet.
But I know which one it is going to be for sure.
My wife photo which she is going to like. She doesn’t like any so far.

As of now, here is one from few I’m satisfied with.

Never posted a photo here so hope they show up. The one of the monkey was taken at the Atlanta Zoo about 1985ish. Kinda says something about humanity and how animals can feel trapped and neglected, this sux.
Second is a shot I took in the 90s of baby birds back in the 80s, I just really like it, don't know why, just do.
I would post the shots of women but there are waaaaaaaay to many of those I have taken, so that should be a whole other post. Lets just say I am posting these because they stir the most emotion for me.

I really like this picture. Not that I think it is technically perfect (the harsh shadows is something I really regret about this picture, should have used a fill flash) but I just love the expression on her face as well as the general sharpness of the picture.

Its hard to pick only one photograph, where as I could narrow it down to ten very easily.

This was one of my first pictures taken with my first dslr. Didn't know what everything meant on it, just knew how to shoot. Now that I know what I am doing, uh huh, I try and replicate some of the shots where there was no thought involved and for some reason, it never replicates the thrill of those shots when I was learning.
