Als kleinen Denkanstoß gibt es Kategorien zu denen man die besten Bilder zeigen soll. Als ich die Kategorien das erste mal durchgelesen habe, dachte ich noch "Oh je dazu wirst du kein einziges Bild finden!". Letztenendes war es dann aber gar nicht so schwer und für viele Kategorien hatte ich sogar mehrere Bilder zur Auswahl.
Um jetzt nicht nur stumpf ein paar Bilder und Kategorien hier zu zeigen, möchte ich immer noch ein bisschen was zum Bild schreiben. Außerdem gibt es ganz exklusiv die Exifs der Bilder. Ich würde mich sehr über dein Feedback freuen:
Wie findest du die Bilder? Wenn du meinen Blog schon länger kennst, hättest du die selben ausgewählt? Findest du die Exif Daten stimmig?
Aber nun endlich Vorhang auf für meine Highlights aus dem zweiten Halbjahr von 2016:
Did you have a great start into the new Year? I happily did, but today I want to look into the past again - don't worry, this won't be another normal year's retrospect. A little while ago I found a really nice blogparade which animates to look through old pictures and pick some great pictures of the last six months. I though that's a great idea and so I really wanted to join this parade.
It would be boring to just pick some random pictures and so the blogparade gives some topics. When I first saw them I was thinking: "Well, I won't find even one picture for this topics!", but in the end, it wasn't that hard and I found quite a lot.
I don't want to just show you some pictures and don't say a word and so I want to write some words to every picture. Besides, you will get the really exclusive exifs. I would really like to get some feedback from you:
What do you think of the pictures? If you know the blog for longer, which pictures would you choose for the topics? What do you think about the exifs?
But now raise the curtains for my highlights of the last six months of 2016:

Dieses Bild fiel mir schon auf dem Kamerabildschirm ins Auge und ich war begeistert. Zum Glück war es auf dem großen Bildschirm dann genauso gut. Die Auswahl eines Bildes für dieses Thema war also so gar nicht schwer für mich.
In November I visited a bigger woodland in the middle of Hamburg with a friend. We especially wanted to see an enclosure for deer in there, but on our little walk to this area, we found a lot of great motives. When I just took some macro shots - it might have been mushrooms - my friend told me that she found a frog. I thought that was quite crazy in November because it was pretty cold already. But the frog was full of life and hopping over the foreground. We had a little pursuit and I could take some nice photos of it.
When I saw this picture on my camera display I was really happy and luckily on the computer it also looked good. So the selection of a picture for this topic wasn't hard for me at all.

It was harder to find a good picture for the topic "Famous". First I was thinking of a famous person, but of course, I never made a photo of one. Then I was thinking of a famous building or view, so I looked through my pictures of Amsterdam and Berlin. Probably you can't see what the picture is at the first sight so I will tell you: it's a part of the Berlin Wall, which is famous all around the world.

When I read the topic "Grown" I was first thinking of flowers and mushrooms but in the end, I was thinking of another picture: a grave on a Jewish graveyard in Altona, that was grown into a tree. I'm totally in love with the light in this picture and besides this graveyard was a really silent and peaceful place.

This picture might be the best picture I ever made in the darkness, which is kind of funny because I didn't even use a tripod. But let's start at the beginning: in early October my boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Berlin, to see my favorite band "The Pretty Reckless". Besides the great concert, we also had a great weekend in Berlin and on our second evening there was the so named "Festival of Lights". After dinner, we took a little walk to see this great light art on famous buildings. On this picture, you don't see anything of the Festival of Lights because the dome was spotlighted on another side. I made the picture on a bridge on our way, luckily it had some quite thick walls as a handrail. So I lay my camera on this wall and could do a quite long exposure without using a tripod.

Ich bin kein großer Fan von Gebäudefotografie, also gab es für diese Kategorie nicht besonders viel Auswahl. Die meisten meiner Bilder von Gebäuden sind ziemliche Schnappschüsse mit fallenden Linien und all solchen Dingen. Dieses Bild hier ist in meinen Augen die gelungendste Gebäudefotografie im letzten halben Jahr. An sonsten hätte ich vom selben Tag noch einige schöne Fotos auf dem Park Sanssouci, diese kann ich nur leider nicht auf dem Blog veröffentlichen.
I made this picture on the same weekend in Berlin, when we took a little trip to the nearby city of Potsdam. On the picture you can see the Church of St. Nicholas and the new city palace.
I'm not a big fan of photographing buildings so I didn't have a big selection on this topic. The most building picture of mine are only snapshots. This picture might be the best of my building photographs in the last year. Besides I made some nice pictures of the Park Sanssouci and it's palaces on this day but I can't show them to you on the blog.

This topic was quite hard because there are so many pictures I really like. In the end I decided to choose this butterfly picture. It was one of the first macro pictures I did with my new camera and I'm really happy with it. Besides it's hanging as a canvas in my living room and I'm never tire of looking at it.
