    Although I haven't spent much time here over the past year due to working more in video than photography, I couldn't resist coming back to create my traditional thread for the third year running. So here we are, choose a maximum of three shots from the past year that show the best of your work; it can either be technically impressive, or perhaps it means something sentimental to you.

    20297739370_8985f7734a_c.jpg A7s test by Ben Grady, on Flickr

    I chose this first shot simply because it was the first shot I uploaded from my A7s which I bought in September. I ended up spending my first ever month's wages on the camera body, even sending me a few hundred into my bank overdraft, but it was worth it!

    I simply like the aesthetic of this one, and at the time it reminded me of my love for nature photography, which I hope to one day become my career in some form.

    Finally, this shot showed me the immense dynamic range and malleability of the A7s RAW files (it was woefully underexposed before processing), and made for a nice shot of my new home at university in Bournemouth.


    So there you have it, my shots over 2015. This year was certainly not a brilliant year for my photographic portfolio, but here's to a better 2016! Now let's see what you've got!

    It's difficult for me to say whether these are my "best" shots of 2015. But they're certainly three of my favorites.

    Really like all 3, but 3 has this "I'm a bad @$$" thing going that makes it irresistible.

    This thread is full of excellent photos :thumbsup:

    My top picks for 2015 all have to do with the moments/the story behind the photos...

    I really can't say these are my best because I choose a different 3 every time I try to select. At that rate it will be 2017, so here goes 3 pictures from 2015
