It's the time of the year to recapitulate the past year in all sorts of ways. I'll try to do it for my photography. I'm quite happy that I could visit so many new places during my early winter photo trip to the Alps in January, the big trip to Japan, Australia and Tasmania in May and June and the annual summer trip to the Alps in August. I still haven't processed all pictures from those trips yet, I guess it will still take a couple of months to eventually catch up.
This is actually a topic which keeps me thinking every year, whether I spend too much time and effort processing single pictures and then not being able to finish a folder full of pictures in time. The backlog is getting bigger and bigger. I already thought about setting hard deadlines like for finishing wedding pictures for clients also for my landscape work. But I'm already sure that this doesn't work because sometimes I have to re-visit pictures again and again to find out how to process them in a way which emphasises my artistic expression and the atmosphere in the picture the most. Unlike wedding pictures, I take landscape pictures only for myself, not for somebody else, that means I can take as much time and effort to finish the pictures. So I think I'll probably not introduce artificial deadlines, but instead try to streamline and optimise my work-flow instead.

One thing I neglected this year was shooting new abstract architecture pictures and generally printing pictures, I hope I can improve on that next year!

Now I'll leave you with my personal top 10 from this year and wishing you a happy new year, enjoy ;)
