Happy New Year / 30 December, 2009 [click for previous image: let it snow #3] Happy New Year / 30 December, 2009 [click for next image: ringing in the new year] Title • Happy New Year I've spent the last couple of days wondering what to post to close out the year and then came across this entry on momentaryawe.com (run by my good friend Catalin Marin): his twelve favourite shots from 2009, one from each month. So, with credit to Catalin for the idea, here are my twelve favourites for the preceding year. Had I selected images from the year as a whole I suspect that there would be a couple of changes, and I also suspect that some of you would make different choices from each month, but when I looked back through the images I'd posted this year these are the ones that gave me most pleasure to produce. As always, let me know what you think. On a different matter: don't forget that there are just a few days left in which to snap up a 15% discount on our Photoshop tutorials.
