This is the first of what we hope will be a series of ‘Personal choice’ selections by Dyxum members.

The idea is that individual members pick out a series of shots from the photo galleries that have had an impact on them over the last few weeks or months; Nebbor has kindly stepped forward to submit the first set and we hope that a few other people we approached may be able to follow up in the next few weeks or months.

If you would be interested in compiling a Personal Choice of your own, please get in contact with us via PM.

I was asked to put down my personal favourites of recent times for a new feature of Dyxum called "Personal choice". This proved to be not an easy task. However I managed to get quite a few shots together, below is the result.

"Pepper" posted by Bob J



Wonderfully simple: a hand and an pepper. But skillfully photographed and PP-ed so it becomes a very powerfull image.

"S is for snow" posted by jamesmd



Asymmetrical symmetry is what i like to call this: almost a symmetrical background, just OOF enough and the random snowflakes. Well seen and nicely executed shot.

Posted by common



A very striking image. The emotion of the girl seems to change while you are looking at it. One of the best portaits ever for me.


"Love umbrellas" posted by jamesmd



Shot for the "Umbrella" DPC I think it is a brilliant idea and very well executed. Using objects to create another object: very creative!

Posted by Mark L



Very hard for me to explain why I picked this one but it grabs me.

Posted by jvsanchez



Intense purple and yellow, good use of DOF, nice composition. A classic flower shot.


"Huntington Pier CA" posted by common



A shot where there is so much to see and to imagine yet very simple. Love the lines in the shot, great composition.


"Starlings" posted by frank61



The movement captured and the diagonal lines the birds create create a very dynamic photograph.


Posted by kubuthor



Stunning simplicity and very captivating. Never I looked at a shot so long where there is so little to see. Absolutely brilliant.


Posted by Bob J



Beautifull color gradients and composition. Always impresses me to make something extraordinary out of something ordinary.


"Enlightened" posted by smcabbott



A shot made great by composition. It tickles the curiosity of the viewer: I still don't know what it is. Intriguing.

"Endless time 3" posted by darosa



I am not a fan of extreme PP but this is such a nice shot made even better by the PP. Love the Droste effect, great title.

"Boeing BBJ VP-BRT leaving St. Moritz in the last winter sun" posted by Daninho


Great angle fitting the subject well. Stunning light and background. All about being at the right place at the right time.




These personal choices were hard to pick, so many great shots posted every week. It is just a reflection of what I liked best. It easily could have been many, many more. Keep up the high standard.

Thankyou Nebbor , I'm realy impressed , you can't imagine how happy this made me .

Photograph is my hobby and I love it . It's my favourite way of relaxing and having time for me , without thinking of anything else . I would love to take photographs of people , and street , but I wasn't designed for that I think , so I photograph things and moments that catch my eye . All this is to say that I thought my photos didn't really get anywhere , and today for first time I felt proud and happy with the photos I take .

So tankyou so much again .

It's a honour for me to be selected by you with such great shots of all others .

James .


what ever you do, have fun. thats what it's all about
and move , move you body move your mind , move your point of view, suddenly everything changes ...

Wow, what a wonderful surprise to wake up to this morning! This is a great feature and I look forward to future installments.

Nebbor, thanks for sharing your picks and thoughts with us. I truly enjoy seeing what strikes the fancy of others. My shot that you chose was just an attempt to find an interesting way to portray a rather ordinary object. If you like, I'll "enlighten" you on what it is.   

Well done to Nebbor on the selection and write up and well done to all those with chosen images.

I, like the others, am equally honored to have one of my photos selected for your set.

An excellent selection, and one of the many reasons why i continue to visit and post to dyxum as much as i can!

Great job Nebbor!

This is a great new series. Kudos to Nebbor for producing the 1st set. It's not easy to put into words what you like about a photo: it grabs you but sometimes you don't know why or you do but how do you say it . Great job Nebbor; and a very good initiative. For me Dyxum is about photos primarily (all the rumours about gear and discussions about where Sony is going I find tiresome at best) and this series is a welcome addition. It's interesting and instructive to read other people's thoughts about why photos work for them.
Oh, and I'm very honoured that one of my photos is part of this set !
