Now that we arrived in another fresh year it's the best time to reflect on good and bad memories. Of course here I'd like to focus on good memories in the form of pictures. Last year I focussed more on landscape photography again, architecture photography was only covered by the trip to Frankfurt and Japan. Unfortunately the pictures of the latter trip (also landscapes) are still in the process of getting finished, so I'll not be able to cover them here, which is quite a shame. In the meantime I've been to Tokyo again and came back only last week, so there's even more to come in the architecture photography department, stay tuned!

Although I have the feeling that I didn't go out shooting not nearly as often as I wished for I still feel and see an improvement of my skills, I no longer rely and focus on poplar locations a.k.a. "money shot locations", I completely lost the motivation to shoot something which has been shot exactly the same so many times already. I tremendously improved my skills of discovering interest and beauty in the area which surrounds me. I however still struggle when it comes to details in terms of solid compositions and post-processing decisions. Often I'm also having a hard time with pre-visualization of shots which many artists highly rely on to fulfill their vision they already have in their mind before even picking up the camera. Well, that will leave something for the next years to concentrate one, I guess!

Now I want to present you my top 10 of 2015, without particular order. I hope you also enjoy those pics as I do ;)
