favs of 2011

The last part of my countdown to 2012! Again, in no particular order. It’s just like choosing your favorite child. You just can’t do it!

helicopters, angela b. pan, abpan, air and space museum, udvar-hazy, virginia,
Taken at the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, VA. I love the composition and the leading lines in this one. Plus it was super hard to take this image without a tripod.

great falls, virginia, sunrise, landscape, hdr, travel, angela b. pan, abpan
I was so lucky to get this shot. This pink only lasted for 5 minutes and it went away.

The summer is great for fog. Sometimes it can get too foggy and its kinda hard to see, this was just the right amount.

cooks valley, yosemite, angela b. pan, abpan, fog, landscape, travel, california, ca,
From my trip to Yosemite, the whole time I was there it was rainy/foggy. This was during a photo walk given by the Ansel Adams Gallery to Cooks Valley. I love the reflection with the little hay balls.

US capitol, congress, angela b. pan, abpan, travel, sunrise, landscape, reflection DC
One of my favoritest pics of all time. It represents a defining moment from when my pics got from ok to good.

canon, battlefield, manassas, virginia, va, sunrise, fog, travel, angela b. pan, abpan, landscape, hdr
A beautiful foggy morning in Manassas, VA. I came out with so many different, colorful images. It was a day a photographers only dreams about.

Again, another image from that amazing day in Manassas. I love the simplicity of this image.

alexandria, water front, hurrican irene, sunrise, landscape, va, angela b. pan, abpan
The morning before hurricane Irene hit. The clouds were INSANE!

In no particular order, these are a few of my favorites from the past year. I know it may not be the ones you may have picked, but they all have some sort of special meaning to me.

It’s so amazing to reflect back on the past year and think about all the progress I’ve made in photography. Like I said before, I can’t wait for 2012. It’s going to be amazing!

lamborghini, gallardo, yellow, angela b. pan, abpan, hdr, car,
A friend’s car. When I first processed this image it blew me away. I literally stood up from my desk and was like “WOW”. This was on of those pics that I could not wait to share!
Check out what it’s like to ride shotgun.

orchid, pink, macro, hdr, angela b. pan, abpan, close up, flower
One of my very first macro images. I love the composition and detail in this image. It’s one of those pics that I could stare at for hours and still love it.
One of my friends bought this pic. Check out her reaction.

cadillac, miami, florida, art deco, angela b. pan, abpan, night photography, hdr, pink,
It’s funny because you only see the end result. While I was taking this pic, my boyfriend, Andrew, was screaming at me to get out of the middle of the street. I swear, sometimes I’m so concentrated on getting the shot that I just don’t realize other stuff that is going on around me.
Wow, I have a lot of videos on these images. Pretty cool to reminence two ways!

sunflower, macro, photography, hdr, maryland, angela b. pan, abpan
My first and only time at a sunflower field. I only went once this year and I’m kinda bummed. I should of gone more. Next year though.
I’ve heard a lot of people tell me this is their favorite video. What do you think?

tidal basin, monument, jefferson memorial, sunrise, washington dc, angela b. pan, abpan, landscape
This image wasn’t planned but I love it. I love the purple and the reflection in the water. That purple only happens when you’re up SUPER early in the morning.
See what I mean, I didn’t plan on getting this shot.

red flower, macro, photo, angela b. pan, abpan, close up, hdr
I love the simplicity of this image. The two flowers are opposites but they are still beautiful together. One of my absolute favs!

water droplet, close up, macro, angela b. pan, abpan
My first water droplet pic! I’m so proud 🙂
