The annual Top 10s

This is a self imposed challenge, to select the annual Top 10 photos. The idea is to select the best of the best shots from the last year. The candidate photos should have been both shot and edited during the last year.  The challenge is, of course, to select only a limited number from all the photos taken. A very painful exercise., but at the same time very useful. It helps honing the skill of selecting the winners from the non-winners, and it forces you to think of each photo individually but also to consider the collection as a whole. The result is 10 photos that is representative of the photographic interests and skill level of the past year. Hopefully it should also be possible to see an improvement, or at least a change, over the years. I got the initial idea for this from Martin Bailey while being part of his apprentice cohort at the Arcanum. This is the fourth year I've selected my top 10s.

Below are my Top 10s for 2013, 201420152016 and 2017.
