December Photo-a-day, Finale and Superlatives

December 29 | I need less of this

December 30 | Us

December 31 | My best bit of 2014

Total likes on Facebook*: 215.
Total likes on Instagram: 168.
Number of Cat Pictures: 5.
Pictures from the "Gold Vault" (aka, pictures that were taken before December): 8. I'm actually surprised it was only 8 pictures, at the time it felt like I was constantly using older pictures.

Most liked picture on Facebook: I need less of this. 37 likes. Clearly liked because of the idea behind the picture, and not because it's an exceptionally cool picture.
Most liked picture on Instagram: Decoration. 13 likes.
Personal favorite, grading on sentimentality: Much loved. Obviously.
Personal favorite, grading on photo fanciness: Pop! Runner-up Sunshine.
Least favorite: Super. I just feel like it's neither an interesting interpretation of the prompt nor a visually interesting photograph.
Hardest shot to get: Believe it or not, Book. To get the angle just right so that you can see the Christmas lights in the background and be able to read the spine on the Little Golden Book (that shiny gold does not photograph well) took a lot of trial and error.
Special award for "Shit I forgot to take a picture, I need to make something up": Celebration. I had intended to take a picture at the family Christmas party, but didn't. So I made up some crap that made "celebration" fit a picture of the ornaments I made as gifts this year.

*Facebook likes are taken from the FMS Photo-a-day group, not from my personal facebook page.

FMS Photo-a-day is going to a weekly format next year, and I honestly don't know how I feel about it. I kind of like making the commitment to a whole month at a time. I wasn't planning on doing January anyway, so we'll see if I decide to do another round of photo-a-day in 2015.
