Just a bit of fun. What image types made you go "oh no not another one". We all know the ever lasting favourites, like sunsets (and yes I uploaded one yesterday Smile ). But what stood out as the trends in 2012?

Just to be clear this thread is not meant to be critical of certain styles of images but if we want to try something new then what should we try to avoid in 2013?

Hmmm, thought they might come up. Any more to add. What about the use of 'filter effects' (Instagram) or is everyone cool with that?

I'd love to see less emphasis on gimmicks and techniques and more on authentic story telling images. No doubt image manipulation will be pushed further and further as it is made easier with new software.

Burning balls of steel wool swung around on the end of a string.

Less birds on a stick and more BIFs if I had my way

I am starting to get a bit weary of HDR, mostly when that is all an image is about.

Less captive birds and animals masquerading as 'wildlife/nature'. Might as well take photos of sheep and chickens!

I live in Derbyshire and we seem to have a lot of heavily Photoshoped goth pictures in our competitions.
They are mostly from the Whitby weekends.
