2021: A Photographic Retrospective

Over the last few weeks, in what has become an annual event, I went through the photos that I shared on this blog over the last year, choosing twelve photos for sharing again in this retrospective. As usual, this means that the photos have appeared on this blog since I published the last retrospective, but may have been taken earlier. For those who are interested, … Continue reading 2021: A Photographic Retrospective

2019: A Photographic Retrospective

It is that time again where one looks back over the past year; for many photographers this also means choosing a selection of photos of particular significance. In my case, for the last several years I have been choosing twelve photos published on this blog, presenting them as a retrospective. This started for me with Jim Goldstein’s annual project, and as usual I have submitted … Continue reading 2019: A Photographic Retrospective

2018: A Photographic Retrospective

Continuing with tradition, prompted as usual by Jim Goldstein’s annual project, I chose twelve photos published on this blog this year, and present them below as a retrospective for the year. If you’re interested, you can also see my earlier selections for 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013. If you’re here just for the photos, skip down to the bottom of this post for a … Continue reading 2018: A Photographic Retrospective

Climbing in Wied il-Għasel

Something a little different than usual, today. I mentioned in an earlier blog post that we bought a Canon mirrorless camera fairly recently, and that I’ve been taking it with me climbing. Well, earlier this month on one particular climbing outing we knew there’d be three of us so I took the opportunity to spend some time practising using this camera while roped in. So, … Continue reading Climbing in Wied il-Għasel

2017: A Photographic Retrospective

Every year I choose twelve photos published on this blog that year, as a retrospective, prompted by Jim Goldstein’s annual project. Ideally I’d like to do this after the year is finished, to make sure I consider every photo up to the end of the year. But the submission is usually open from mid-December to just after the new year starts, which means the selection … Continue reading 2017: A Photographic Retrospective

2016: A Photographic Retrospective

Every year I intend to get started earlier on my usual retrospective, with limited success. I suppose any step in the right direction is a good thing though, and I am publishing this a week before I did last year. So there you go. As usual, this selection of photos is prompted by Jim Goldstein’s annual project, in my case for the fourth time. You … Continue reading 2016: A Photographic Retrospective

2015: A Photographic Retrospective

[Update 19-Nov-2020: removed reference to Flickr] It’s that time of year again, when everyone is looking back at the year that’s about to end, and reflecting on what has happened. For many photographers, it’s also the time to prepare a selection of favourite photos from the year and submit it to Jim Goldstein’s annual project. For myself, it’s the third time I’m doing this: you … Continue reading 2015: A Photographic Retrospective

Comparison of RAW Format Conversion Software

Today’s post is one for the pixel peepers. Well, not just, perhaps. It should really be of interest to anyone shooting digital who wants to maximize the sharpness of their images and essentially get the best they can out of the gear they already own. Image quality is mentioned a lot in photography circles, mostly by gear-heads, but it’s not an issue to be dismissed … Continue reading Comparison of RAW Format Conversion Software

2014: A Photographic Retrospective

[Update 19-Nov-2020: removed reference to Flickr] I meant to write this post earlier, but at least I’m still in time for Jim Goldstein’s annual project. Earlier this week I went through the photos I shared on this blog in 2014, ruthlessly trimming down until I was left with my favourite twelve. Or, as close to that as I could get. Once I was down to … Continue reading 2014: A Photographic Retrospective

2013: A Photographic Retrospective

[Update 19-Nov-2020: removed reference to Flickr] It seems to be quite a tradition, to present a selection (typically 10 or 12) of images from the year just completed. So for the first time, and for my first post of 2014, I’m looking back on what happened to be a year where (I feel) my photography has taken a definite step forward. You get what you … Continue reading 2013: A Photographic Retrospective
