Portfolio Book Image: Flatirons Sunrise

Added on by J.D. Magers.

A few months back, I mentioned that I was going to take Zack Arias' advice from his Photography Q & A book and figure out what my 20-30 best images are and get a book printed.  Well, I have completed the task of looking at over 14,000 images captured since 2006.  I have gotten impartial feedback from trusted confidants (Thanks Brett, and Uncle Jack and Aunt Debi, I appreciate your help!).  I have narrowed the images down to 23 of my best work.  

Over the next few weeks, I am going to upload them 1 or 2 at a time, depending on when the toddler goes to sleep.  Once complete, I will post about why I selected each image.  I will then send the book off to printing to keep on my desk at work and to have here at home.  If you have feedback on any image as the portfolio evolves, or feel a picture just doesn't fit, please let me know.  I enjoy feedback.

Here is the first picture, taken back in 2009 when I was first learning HDR.  I've reworked it several times over the years as I get more comfortable with processing.  Enjoy.
