Those are amazing!! I really need to get in on the next challenge!! I keep saying I will do it but keep forgetting!!

I love the Infrared shot and the macro shot - both are AMAZING!!

Anonymous said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I really can´t pick a favorite; your photos are all so amazing!

Mominin said...

Wow!! These are great! I think my favorite is the macro shot - but it's so hard to choose!!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wonderful shots. I like the way your mind works, what you've chosen to illustrate each challenge.

Jientje said...

Thanks for the good advice in your comment on my blog yesterday. It looks like you are a very talented photographer, I LOVE this series! The Black and White of your daughter absolutely "jumps" out!

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, wow!!!!!!!!! I want pictures like THAT!!!

Timo said...

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my hunt-results!

You've got here an amazing collection! Liked especially first four photos + 9 & 14 - also noticed that our hot was of a same origin. :-)

Have a good 2010 and greetings from Finland!

Timo said...

And of course I forgot the IR-thing... Yes my #19 was taken with IR-filter on, the exposure time is then around 4 seconds. Filters are for example like this (that's a shop in UK but they had some new info that I found interesting too - should try that un-saturate tip.)

blueviolet said...

Exquisite! That's all I can say.

Ang said...

I seriously cannot pick a favorite; you have perfect exposure and composition, on ALL of your shots! You win, hands down, for best overall collection!

Momisodes said...

These are all simply awesome! I just love the Hotel Del photos. I miss visiting there, as well as the Children's pool in LaJolla.

Berg said...

4, 18, and 19 are my favs!

kaye said...

in my opinion your window display is the best I've seen. And I didn't really get the infrared thing but so far I like the look of yours the best. great results for the rest as well :)

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

All fantastic..

That shot with the selective color... what program is that???

Live.Love.Eat said...

I can't believe how many beautiful pics you have taken. And I learned the phrase (black and white with selected color). Simple but I didn't know to use "selected color" and I have always liked those a lot. Do you use a certain software for that?

lisaschaos said...

You found many beautiful shots! Wow! I really love the jumping daughter photo!

Honey Mommy said...

You take the most gorgeous photos! I was going to participate in the challenge, but I didn't remember about it until after the 15th and then I definitely didn't have time!

Oh well, maybe in February. Though I don't think my photos could ever compare to yours! They are practically art!

Heidi said...

Wow! I love all of these shots. They turned out so well.
I especially love the hammock, it's stunning, and your black and white is just so perfect. I also loved your ginger bread house. It's beautiful!
Very nicely done!

Kristi said...

What an awesome group of shots Michelle!! i loved them all but I knew I would before I even saw what you came up with!
