Please Vote – Scott K Marshall (@skm1963) – Image of the Year

Well as we draw towards the end of the year – time for a little reflection. I saw Lyle Khran (Kranpix) blog his favourite images and seek fellow bloggers to vote for their favourite. I recall last year thinking the same thing – oh that would be a good idea. Then when I sat down and thought about it I havent been very prolific this year unless you want some property photos to select – hardly inspiring – But anyway I thought lets have a look – so I did and here is the result – I have selected 9 images – all you guys have to do is take the time to look at the images then scroll to the bottom and vote – the PC does the rest. I would really appreciate you voting as I am intrigued to know if we have similar taste… So please give it a scroll and press the voting button. Thanks

  1. A beautiful way to bring in the New Year ~ great series of photos and wishing you continued success in your photography. Cheers to a great 2016.

  2. I think I need a good Scottish expression to describe them all but I’m lacking the words. I loved the reverse reflection on Perfect Imbalance and really wanted to give that unique photo my vote but eventually was swayed by the colours and lines in From the Darkness that drew me in.

    Did the poll results diverge widely from your opinions?

    Great idea by the way:)

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family!

    1. Hey the Lyle the poll was wildly off the mark but no surprise – I am looking at images far to technically these days (the influence of the camera club and judging – I suppose) – I trust you had a great festive period and are looking forward to enjoying 2016 (-:

  3. Good grief! How to select from these? That first one had my name all over it, but then I fell a little in love with 3, and what about 7! You’re a cracking photographer, Scott! Merry Christmas to you and my very best wishes for 2016. 🙂

  4. Lots of good ones here. I couldn’t resist 3. There’s something magical about the reflections and patterns. Then again 6 gave me one of my favorite themes. Love the light and reflections in 5. You actually make it a bit difficult to choose!

    1. ha ha – correct answer you can come back in fact as my second top commentator of all time – you have to come back – thanks for all your support have a great New Year 🙂

    1. good stuff my kinda shot too but I would been slated for it at the club – so you are right stick with your instinct and gut feelings – have a great New Year

  5. I just wanted you to know how much you have inspired me over the years. You have opened my eyes to all the amazing possibilities that are found in looking through a lens. Thank you very much. Looking forward to the adventures that are awaiting us in 2016. By the way, heading over to you side of the world again next year. Scotland seems to be our home away from home.

    1. Well that has to be comment of the year flattered and appreciated all your support – keep blogging and most of all keep taking photos – you just don’t know what is around the corner – Happy New Year – when it comes.

  6. Dear Scott, your photography always inspires me and also makes me excited. You are amazing photographer. It is not easy to vote for one of them 🙂 Really… But yes, there is one of them, I don’t know why it impressed me so much but I voted. Seems that we all thought same… But I wonder yours too ? Thank you, Blessing and Happiness, love, nia

    1. David thank you for your insight and humour and as my top commentator over the years – you must come back next year – so I have teased you with a wee Lighthouse from the project 🙂 P.S you right about “X” being the top shot – Happy New Year to you and your family for 2016 – Scott
