Finding out I need to select the 'Perceptual' setting instead of the 'Relative Colorimetric' setting from the drop-down in the Print window of CS4 to really nail the printed image when using Permajet paper. Subtle but 'Oh-So-THERE'!!
I never had a shortage of my pictures printed in newspapers, but I guess the highlight for me was having my first lensbaby picture published, it left me almost £600 out of pocket
Became a professional photographer was probably the highlight
The main highlights for me were...
Back in January, a spectacularly frosty/misty sunrise on Higger Tor, with a few other stunning sunrises throughout the year.
A solo exhibition in Wakefield.
Having a number of images published in the 'Simply Saddleworth' photobook.
Getting my first EPZ EC.
Topping off the year with an image used in an ad for Visit the Peak District in the Xmas edition of the Radio Times.
Thanks to everyone at EPZ for your continued support and best wishes for the New Year.
Seeing and photographing a wild wolf and experiencing some small part of what Finnish nature has to offer.
For me being chosen for publication in the lensbaby book "Bending Your Perspective" by Corey Hilz.

What was his name Cheryl ...Sorry couldn't resist
In 2010 we opened our first combined shop and studio, something I've wanted to do for a long time.
We've spent 4 months redeveloping the place, decorating and so on and our new website is now live. I just need to get on and get some model shots on the website, but that'll be after our first wedding of the year on Jan 8th 2011...
All the best to all at Epz and all of you on the forums for 2011.
Selling a fair few of my HDR interiors ..... it's one thing getting clicks and the odd HC/EC but quite another when someone is prepared to part with hard cash.
Created my first really large panoramic (it would have been 7ft 6inches long but I had to split it into two 39 inch sections to be able to get it framed and hung in the gallery).
Then selling four sets of the pair during the first exhibition I hung it in (including having two couples arguing over who saw it first on the first day of the exhibition!) It will probaby never happen again but a good feeling while it lasted
I'm now trying to find someone with the money and space to produce it as a 15ft continuous pano - which I think is how it will really look its best
...got a 1st. and a 3rd. in a competition at my local camera club.
I believe, but is perhaps open to debate by others, that I am beginning to understand how to process my RAW files with software such as Lightroom and am seeing a slight improvement in my uploads to epz.
Subject wise, the highlight was my dahlia shots from Hever Castle, everything just seemed to work that day with perfect conditions and I even had a few women stop and chat to me about flowers, photography and other subjects I may like to photograph.
A couple of life enriching experiences whilst out with the camera this year:
A particularly hard ridge day in blizzard on Ben Cruachan.
A wild camp on An Teallach with both sunset and sunrise shots.
An early start up Ben Nevis in a gale to witness a stunning summit sunrise.
A wild camp at Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin.
An exceptional winter weekend high in the Glen Coe mountains.
Liathach in superb winter conditions.
.... a few more but would hate to bore you all...........
