Favorites Images of 2016

I’m a month late to post this, but some say “better late than never”, so I’m going with that!  ;)

Thanks to those who voted for their favorites.  We have the results for the two categories!  The top 3 winning images for Best Moments won by a large majority, but this year, we had many Firsts…

It is the first year many of the top images were very close in The Most Delicious Light category.  It is also the first year where more than one photo from the same shoot won distinction in the same category.  (You can see all the images in each category if you go to my FB page.)

BEST MOMENTS OF 2016

A “moment” can be a split second in time, or it can be a moment that tells a story — whether sweet, emotional or humorous.  Some images could fall into both categories of “moment” and “light”, so the decision was based on the weight each factor had on the individual image.

MOST DELICIOUS LIGHT OF 2016

Photos considered in The Most Delicious Light category were images where light played a significant role in the overall image (i.e., if the light was different, the quality or feel of the image would change).
